PHOENIX, Ore. --- In a time when people need to come together, you are seeing it first hand in Phoenix.
“For us we are a smaller company a smaller crew, it might take us a few days to come in and clean up a house or a lot,” Cody Lee Henson, heavy equipment operator, excavation for C-3 Enterprises says.
Henson and his team are working to rebuild a community that they know firsthand.
“My main foreman, his mom lost her house. The younger gentleman that goes to Phoenix High School, they were all impacted. One of my guys, his family lost three or four homes and, the other gentlemen, friends and family also lost, lost homes,” Henson says,
It’s a community that has raised them and the same community that they watched disappear in a blink of an eye.
“We live right here in Phoenix. We were fortunate enough not to lose our home, but it came very close. We stayed and fought,” Henson adds.
Now without football on Friday nights, Phoenix High School senior Huntyr Croy and some of his classmates are putting their time in on a different turf.
“It’s been tough, we getting through it everybody is starting to rebuild now which is nice,” Croy says.
They are doing their best to make sure Phoenix shows its true colors once again.
