Library fines can be paid off with food donations in December

Kids can “pay-off” their 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 their overdue fines. All food will be donated to the local Lift Up Food Bank. This program is for kids and students, 17 and under, whose accounts are listed under the child’s name. The program ends Sunday, Dec. 31. Visit for more information.

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 to donate.
