Sweeping up for health of the community

The newly formed Broom Brigade had their first cleanup effort, “Colusa Pride” and started with streets around the Veterans Memorial Park on July 20.

“Community health is physical, mental and emotional. It’s about making the best quality of life we can together,” said founder Sadie Boggs Ash, who intends to keep the effort going as a promotion of a healthy community.

Ash said she is working toward forming a nonprofit organization called The Farmer’s Daughter, which will be a resource for women’s health. The organization is named in honor of Ash’s sister, Laurel Ash Stevens, who died from colon cancer on May 20, 2017.

“When Rebecca Finnegan, Kim Barrow, and I started talking about what we wanted The Farmer’s Daughter to be, we knew it had to be about community health,” Ash said. Overall health of the people and area we live in.”

Ash said one of the biggest things she learned through her sister’s time of treatment for Stage IV colon cancer, was how important having a strong support system is.

“In working together as a community, we restrengthen and build a county that looks out for and supports each other,” she sadded. “I truly believe this is what Colusa County is and represents: People doing what needs to be done, in this case sweeping the streets to highlight the beautiful cities and towns we live in. For me, community health is physical, mental, and emotional. It’s about making the best quality of life we can, together.”

The volunteer event was a first of what is intended to be many, Ash said. The second planned cleanup event for last Saturday was postponed for two weeks, due to COVID-19 physical distancing restrictions. The next cleanup event is set for Aug. 8. â–
