From Crown King

Carl Schaffer is an Admin for the Crown King AZ Facebook page, and is also the local PIO. 

Schaffer states that there will be a Virtual Town Hall meeting Monday evening, provided by the Type 1 team. More information will be provided tomorrow.

Side note: Don’t forget the Crown King Auction  They have not mentioned this, but here at CopperState we discovered the information and want to help support them in any way possible. One-third of their operating budget comes from community fundraisers. During this year of COVID-19, community fundraisers have been difficult to manage, so let’s help them out if we can!
