Steamboat Briefs: Crane models set to be distributed for decorating

The crane models will be distributed for decorating to participating artists in May and must be returned by Aug. 15. Creative crane motifs are encouraged. The cranes, with appropriate artist credit, will be displayed on the Bud Werner Memorial Library lawn at designated times throughout the fourth annual Yampa Valley Crane Festival scheduled for Sept. 10 to 14.

All proceeds from the Crane yard art and silent auction will benefit the Yampa Valley Crane Festival and the “Crops for Cranes” program. Those who are interested in decorating a crane or want more information should call Karen Kellogg at 970-846-2559 by today.
