The Pikes Peak Community Foundation has announced that the barn-raising scheduled for this Saturday at Venetucci Farm has been postponed due to the Black Forest Fire. The farm will still be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., but all scheduled activities are on hold.

Instead, the PPCF will focus its energies on the new emergency relief fund created in the wake of the fire. And though similar to the one created last year for the Waldo Canyon Fire, the foundation says this year's version "has more flexibility to quickly respond to the community's needs."
