Hello all.

I wanted to share this with the group to keep you all informed. The wild fires in California have forced many from their homes, and many have lost their homes. One of those is Craig Catto of Catto Propellers. His home was completely destroyed, as well as many of his family members homes. Currently, they are all living at the propeller shop at the airport. The primary reason I wanted to send along this info, is so if any of you are waiting on a prop from Craig, this is certainly a time when he could use some patience and understanding from customers. Here is his post to Facebook.

I wanted to reach out to everyone and personally thank you for your support, thoughts and prayers for our loss of our home last week during the Butte fire here in California. Myself, my three children and daughter in law all were able to go through the bedrooms, garage, house to grab most of meant the most that was not replaceable. And I have to tell everyone the kids grabbed all the old props hanging around that I made 25 to 30 years ago. Even the first prop I made when I was just 15 or so. Pictures, paperwork etc. My son and his wife who are expecting in January with my first grandchild lived in our guest house, they were able to get their wedding albums etc. My brother who lived about 5 miles away was awaken by the air attack aircraft and he was able to grab his keys, computer and just get out. We were just able to sneak up to our 7 acre property on Saturday to confirm it is all gone. It is a sight like no other and the feelings i can not describe. Today we are all back at work and will do our best to continue with normal operations here at Catto Propellers. Thank you everyone for your out reach and support.
