Letter: Hike or Treat at Yampa River State Park couldn’t happen without volunteers, donations
To the Hayden, Craig and Steamboat Springs communities,
On Saturday, Oct. 29, we hosted the fifth annual Hike or Treat at Yampa River State Park. Our visitation was nearly 700 people, and we handed out 365 pounds of candy, many toothbrushes and a variety of refreshments. We also offered a photo booth and an interpretive program that was put on by Yampatika.
We received excellent feedback from everyone that participated in the Hike or Treat, and none of it would have been possible without the help from the volunteers that staffed the candy stations and the businesses that donated in support of the event.
Event participants also donated a large amount of canned goods to benefit those in need in our community. I personally would like to thank each of our sponsors of this year’s event.
The staff at Yampa River and Elkhead Reservoir State Parks are absolutely humbled by the tremendous amount of support provided for the Hike or Treat and would like to offer our most sincere gratitude to each individual and business that helped to make this a success.
