• Current thumbnail CRFPD Shift Team B gathered behind two of the department's brand new vehicles for a photo the afternoon of June 21. There is good reason for being concerned about this year's extremely dry conditions and increased fire-risk. Fortunately, this crew is always ready to fight a blaze.

Meet the Author: Nancy Bo Flood

May 8 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Join author Nancy Bo Flood virtually with your libraries to celebrate Mother’s Day! Nancy Bo Flood will present her book, First Laugh: Welcome Baby. The First Laugh Ceremony is a Navajo way to welcome a new member of a community. As everyone – from baby’s nima (Mom) to nadi (Big Sister), to cheii (Grandfather)- tries to elicit the first joyous sound from Baby, readers are introduced to details about Navajo life and the Navajo names for family members. And don’t forget to pick up your very own Navajo bead bracelet Take Home kit from your nearest library to go along with the presentation. The event will be interpreted in Spanish and ASL in real-time for those who want to participate in either of those options.
