Rally in honor of Yampa Valley Gives Day planned for Friday

A Yampa Valley Gives Day Rally will be held from 11 to 11:30 a.m. Friday, Dec. 1 on the front lawn of the historic Routt County Courthouse on Lincoln Avenue in downtown Steamboat Springs. The event is being held to raise awareness of Colorado Gives Day on Tuesday, Dec. 5 and increase online charitable giving.

County Commissioner Tim Corrigan is scheduled to attend the rally and proclaim Dec. 5, 2017, as Yampa Valley Gives Day. Representatives from the Yampa Valley Community Foundation and the Yampa Valley Gives board will also make remarks. 

On Dec. 5, donations are accepted online at YampaValleyGives.org. Yampa Valley Gives Day, a regional Colorado Gives Day champion, will celebrate its fourth year. In 2016, local contributions for nonprofits totaled over $750,000.

Friday’s rally is open to the public, and community members are encouraged to attend.

Mountainfilm to make annual return to library Monday

Bud Werner Memorial Library in Steamboat Springs presents the return of Mountainfilm On Tour at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 4 in Library Hall. The traveling film festival features films that are hand-selected from the finalists at Mountainfilm in Telluride, with themes of adventure, mountaineering, remarkable personalities, and important environmental and social messages.

This year’s lineup includes profiles of intriguing athletes on mountain tops and under the ice, intimate wildlife encounters from tarpon to owls, ski adventures in Iran and Greenland, and a dose of humor sprinkled in between.

A $10 ticket available only at the door helps support this outstanding film festival’s ongoing visit to Steamboat Springs and the library, and includes free popcorn and lemonade.

The festival runs about two hours, including a brief intermission. Visit steamboatlibrary.org/events for more information.

Mountainfilm for kids lineup screens free

Bud Werner Memorial Library and the Boys and Girls Club of Northwest Colorado will present Mountainfilm for Students, a 45-minute Mountainfilm On Tour lineup designed for kids 12 and younger at 4 p.m. Monday, Dec. 4 in the Boys and Girls Club gym located on Eighth Street in Steamboat Springs.

Kids, films and mountains make a pretty good combination. As important as films and the ideas they generate, however, is the reminder that people on both sides of the camera—adventurer and those who document such deeds—are folks our children may grow up to be. Steamboat Springs is uniquely positioned to provide access to these roles because of its terrain, community and resources. Mountainfilm for Students is designed to inspire and educate the younger crowd.

Membership is not required for this event. Everyone is welcome, and it’s free. Visit steamboatlibrary.org/events for more information.
