New Equipment At Community Building

There is a new microwave and a new conviction toaster oven in the Community Building kitchen!  After last year’s Community Thanksgiving meal there was a small amount of money left from the Colorado Trust.

Those monies combined with some funds raised from selling some pies brought the total to $300, which after some smart shopping, allowed the town to purchases both pieces of equipment.

Special thanks to The Colorado Trust which continues to support community programs like these.
