Oak Grove Hot Shot Memorabilia
The “Woody vinyl decals” used first on OGHS hardhats, are now available. The decal is approximately 2 1/2” in diameter and can be stuck on windows, books, binders, you name it. We are selling 1-5 for $1.00 each plus $.50 for shipping, and $1.00 each plus $.75 for 6-10. We currently have a limited number of these decals.
Make your check out to: Larry Boggs
838 Jacobs Ct.

And do not forget your return address.

For the benefit of the Wildland Firefighter Foundation (WFF) all proceeds from the sale of the “Woody Decal”, “Pine Tree” patch and the “Woody” patch, will go to the Foundation. Over the years, the Oak Grove Hotshots have donated several thousand dollars to the foundation through these type of sales.
We still have Woody and the first Angeles Patch left.

Buy one for yourself, your children and grandchildren and tell them the history of these fine patches. We believe the “Pine Tree” patch (circa 1955) was the first unofficial patch used by the Forest Service anywhere.
Here is how you get the patches:
Contact Chuck Grennell either by emailing Chuck at: chuckgrennell@gmail.com or call him at: area code 209.795.4782. Or even if you prefer snail-mail, his mailing address is: P.O. Box 2506, Arnold, CA 95223
Cost is $4.00 per patch for either one and up to 4 patches for a $1.00 mailing fee. Up to 8 patches for $2.00 mailing fee and Chuck will negotiate on order-by-order beyond 8.

Thanks for your time and please follow our web site for any updates. https://oakgrovehotshots.wordpress.com
