Lone Wolf Colony Fall Fest funds scholarships

Published on

APPLE VALLEY — A haunted house, vendors and live music filled the Lone Wolf Colony RV park, Saturday, during their annual Fall Festival. The spooktacular event sales will fund local high school scholarships for students going into the medical field.

“We’re raising scholarships for students that are in Apple Valley, Granite Hills and Lucerne Valley High Schools,” said Lone Wolf Colony President Eric Rivera. “They’re getting ready to be our new nurses, technicians, EMTs…so we want to be able to send a few of them out at least with some money in their pocket.”

According to Lone Wolf Colony Executive Director Shannon Irwin, the facility has been serving the community for almost 100 years. They offer five medical stay cabins — free to the public for 2 weeks a year with a doctor’s note for injury, surgery, or non-communicable illness recovery. The facility also offers six dump stations, a banquet hall, and five overnight stay cabins. 

Many vendors were onsite selling pumpkins, jewelry, body scents, apparel and desserts during the fall festival. Musical acts including classic rock band FNJK performed live music to the festival goers. A bounce house area and carnival style games entertained the children.

Rivera says the 501c3 organization wants to become an asset to the community.  Most recently, they handed out close to 700 backpacks to students in Apple Valley and Lucerne Valley. 

“What we really want to do is become a part of this community,” said Rivera.

This place has always taken care of people but now we want the community to know it and use us as a resource.
