Help For Employers Available in Leadville Thursday
March has fully arrived and the first week has gotten off to a fierce start, with more snow and inclement weather in the forecast over the next 36 hours, but the end of the week ends on a high note, if the report remains accurate.
Fortunately, the weather was pretty near perfect for Leadville Ski Joring and Crystal Carnival events, especially on Saturday. It was a good winter weekend and business seemed strong on historic Harrison Avenue. Leadville Today will be posting that report, including photos and images soon.
Until then, as you sit and watch winter rage a return outside, here is some information for employers about a FREE presentation coming up this Thursday that could be helpful to your business. Happy Monday!
