City to offer free Christmas tree recycling at Howelsen Ice Arena
The gift of giving continues this holiday season as residents recycle their Christmas trees with the city of Steamboat Springs and the trees live on as mulch for city parks and homeowners.
People can safely dispose of their natural Christmas trees starting Tuesday, Dec. 26 through Jan. 31, by dropping them off in the northwest corner of the Howelsen Ice Arena parking lot. Drop-off is available seven days a week from sunrise to sunset and all tinsel, ornaments, lights and nails must be removed, and wreaths are not accepted.
The mulch will be provided to residents on a first-come, first-serve basis in the spring as well as be used in city parks during the coming year.
Flash Match to benefit Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund
Alpine Bank is sponsoring a $500 Flash Match, challenging locals and those who want to be locals of Yampa Valley to not only enjoy their favorite trails but support them with a donation to the Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund.
All donations will be matched until the $500 goal is met, and the last day to donate is Dec. 31. This is the last chance in 2017 for donors to show their support for local non-motorized trails.
Fundraising for the Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund is a 10-year campaign with an end goal of establishing a $1 million endowment fund. This will provide funding in perpetuity to maintain non-motorized trails in Routt and Moffat counties.
Individuals are invited to participate by visiting yvcf.org/trails to donate.
For more information about the Trail Maintenance Endowment Fund, contact Helen Beall at 970-879-8632 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Children invited to pay off library fines with food item donations
During the month of December, kids can pay off library fines while helping local families in need by participating in the Bud Werner Memorial Library's annual Food for Fines program. For every can or box of food kids bring to the Kids' Desk, the library will waive $2 of overdue fines. All food will be donated to LiftUp of Routt County food bank. This program is for kid and student, 17 and younger, accounts listed under the child's name, during December only, not valid for replacement fees.
