Song and Soak Social benefits Treasure Mountain cooperative

Come out Saturday, May 15, from 7 to 11 p.m. for a fun night of soaking, music and revelry to benefit the Treasure Mountain Educational Cooperative.

It really is pretty amazing to think of all the great music that happens in Pagosa. On a weekly basis, music lovers can hear everything from hard-driving rock and roll to chamber music. We Pagosans are also fortunate to be able to enjoy the natural hot springs water that is here. Music and hot springs — imagine putting these two great joys together for one fantastically fun night out!

You can do it this Saturday at the Overlook Hot Springs. Add to the deal the fact that all proceeds from the evening go to benefit the Treasure Mountain Educational Cooperative, and the night just got better. With appetizers, beer, songs, soaking, and a good cause, this will be an event you won’t want to miss.

First, the songs: John Graves starts the evening out with his beautiful piano sounds and jazz standards. Anyone who has seen John play knows that this elder cat always delivers with his astounding talent. Brooks-i plays high-energy, acoustic originals and covers and always entertains. He will have a very special guest sitting in with him on Saturday. Knucka is Pagosa’s most popular hard-rockin’ group. They will be playing an acoustic set which highlights new songs written by band members Chris Haas and Chris Rapp over the last year. If you’re a music lover, you can get your ya’s ya’s out three different ways on Saturday.

Second, the soaks: Overlook’s casual, locals-friendly atmosphere is the perfect place to relax with a hot springs soak. You can take in the views of Pagosa while you soak in one of the rooftop tubs. Or you can enjoy a soak inside with its cool, Victorian vibe. You can even do the Swiss thing and take a stimulating dip in the cold plunge. If you have not checked out what the Overlook has to offer, this will be the perfect night to do it.

Third, the cause: One of the most effective paths for improved education in our community is having alternative choices in schools that are available. Treasure Mountain Educational Cooperative (TMEC) is a Waldorf-inspired school serving K through third grade located just west of Pagosa. The school was created by the Pagosa Waldorf Initiative and is proud to be at full enrollment for the 2010-2011 school year. TMEC has ongoing financial needs for infrastructure and professional development. To learn more about TMEC, go to You can feel good that all proceeds from this special night will go to improving education in our community.
