Steamboat briefs: Boys & Girls Club event at Four Points Lodge Friday
The Boys & Girls Club of Steamboat Springs will hold its annual fundraiser Friday. This year’s event will be an evening affair that celebrates five years of serving the Steamboat Springs community.

For more information or to volunteer on the event committee, call Lynna Broyles at 970-871-3162 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fund created to help ease financial strain on family
A fund has been set up for Steamboat Springs residents Mary and David Stone to help with medical costs for the family.
Mary Stone has lived with cystic fibrosis, and on July 24 she received a lung transplant at a Denver hospital. She will be in Denver for the next three months recovering, and has gone back and forth from Steamboat and Denver all summer.
Anyone who would like to donate to the family can go to Mountain Valley Bank and donate to the Mary Stone Medical Assistance Fund.
Town predicted to be at 75 percent lodging capacity
About 11,969 visitors are expected to be in town Saturday, according to the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association’s lodging barometer released Wednesday.
The figure represents 75 percent capacity at area lodging properties, with downtown occupancy at 100 percent. On the mountain, hotels are forecast at 84 percent capacity, and condos are expected to be 68 percent full.
Lodging is expected to dip to 7,857 visitors by Wednesday.
The Chamber’s lodging barometer is based on survey data from local lodging properties. Its primary function is to help businesses determine staffing levels during the winter and summer tourism seasons. Actual lodging occupancy levels tend to increase from the forecast levels as a result of last-minute bookings.
2 County roads closed for 2 days due to construction
Routt County Road 14 will be closed to all through traffic between C.R. 14F and C.R. 22 for the Road & Bridge Department to conduct a culvert repair.
The closure is for two days from 7 a.m. Wednesday through 5 p.m. Thursday.
Through traffic will be detoured from the north using C.R. 14F and Colorado Highway 131, and from the south along C.R. 22, to bypass the closed section.
During the construction period, C.R. 14 will be completely closed just north of the Willow Park subdivision entrance (approximately mile marker 14.5). Residents in Willow Park Subdivision and residents between the subdivision and C.R. 22 will need to access their property from the south. Residents north of Willow Park Subdivision will need to access their property from the north.
The construction schedule is subject to change due to weather.
Chief Theater and Dance Theater host Donna Mejia
On Saturday, the Chief Theater in downtown Steamboat Springs and the Steamboat Dance Theatre will host Donna Mejia as she presents “For the Love of the Craft: A Thoughtful Approach to Our Dance Legacy” as well as give a short performance. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the cost is $10.
Presently based at the Department of Theatre and Dance at University of Colorado Boulder, Donna Mejia is a teacher, choreographer and performer of an emerging genre of dance that dialogues Arab, African and nomadic traditions with American hip-hop and electronica.
Mejia lectures and teaches for colleges, private organizations and dance festivals internationally such as Jacob’s Pillow and the Bates Dance Festival.
Then Monday, Mejia will be at Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School and Camp’s pavilion at 9 a.m. to highlight the emerging movement aesthetics of the many brilliant compositions from artists in Near Eastern and North African countries remixed with our own American hip-hop traditions in her Le Funk Arabi master class. Dance/athletic shoes, a long sleeve shirt and knee pads may be helpful for floor work segments. The event is $20.
If you would like to purchase admission to the lecture and the master class, you can do so for $25. Dance Theatre members who show their membership card will also receive a $5 discount to either or both events.
