We have a little less than three months before the end of the year.
I know some out there don’t want to hear it, but it’s coming ... and we can’t stop it.
So, to make this transition easy, take advantage of all the activities still ahead at the center before we reach 2010. Packed into the last three months of 2009 are some great opportunities in Pagosa Springs. So, get out there and enjoy what we have to offer.
Festival of Trees
The Festival of Trees is a wonderful holiday event.
The public is encouraged to view the trees until 5:30 p.m Thursday Dec. 3, and on Friday, Dec. 4 ,until 2 p.m.
Be sure to join us Dec. 4 for the live and silent auctions. The silent auction is a great way to get a start on your Christmas shopping.
Catered hors d’oeuvres will be served, and a cash bar will be available .
Admission to the auction is $10, and the doors open at 6 p.m.
Remember this may be the only auction in town where you can bid on items to benefit more than one of your favorite local nonprofit organizations. This is truly a fun evening.
Please call the center for more information, 264-4152.
