CHICO, Calif. - A fellow Camp Fire Survivor hosted a retreat for women.

"I just came up with this idea of doing vision boards in a collage style where you have kind of a dream girl vision that's your own," said Lynn Abbiati.

Abbiati said the idea was based on some of her own artwork.

"You can set some kind of short term and long term goals to kind of move past the fire and get on a new path of taking care of yourself and moving forward," Abbiati said.

She said she had some supplies donated, but a lot of it she has bought on her own.

This is the second retreat, the first one had about six women there, this one had about ten.

Among them were Peggy Cawthorn and Nancy McLain.

"And what's really neat is the community is so supportive of everyone that's been a fire victim and that's just really wonderful," Cawthorn said.

They both said they became closer friends after the fire. "A whole lot of new friends so that's what's really really fun to you know to find new friends and hear everyone's story," McLain added.

Abbiati is going to try and have the retreat at least once a month.

Winds have calmed down but we remain dry. Temperatures will be in the upper-70s to low-80s for the rest of the week. This quiet weather is good for fire danger but unfortunate since no rain is in the forecast.
