Pagosan raises funds for Up with People trip

Pagosan Naquita Rivas will travel in July with the group Up with People, and is in the process of raising funds to support her participation in the program.

Tomorrow, Friday, May 8, a fund-raiser “Mega Yard Sale” will be held at 346 Morro Circle. If you want to do some spring cleaning and bring your old or new belongings by, Rivas will sell them for a donation.

On Saturday May 15, Rivas will host a benefit dinner and dance at Chavolo’s, located on Piedra Road. Dinner will be from 6:30 to 8 p.m. — $12 per person, call to reserve your seats. The Bluescreamers will perform at 9 p.m. Admission to the dance only is $5 at the door. There will be an opportunity to buy Rivas’ artwork and/or baked goods in a silent auction.

To make donations, contact Naquita Rivas at 903-9498 or mail donations to P.O. Box 2833, Pagosa Springs, CO 81147.
