The Leadville Arts Coalition (LAC) Holiday Arts & Crafts Fair 2017 dates have been set for November 17 & 18 and the group is presently accepting applications for the popular local art show. As always, the LAC is seeking vendors who produce their own product line, so please, no wholesale purchased items offered for sale!
Pass the word and perhaps consider getting your own creative inventory together for this fun and well attended holiday shopping opportunity. Vendor info will be mailed out mid-August. if you would like to be added to the LAC’s vendor send-out list for this fair, contact: Marsha, Leadville Arts Coalition, PO Box 1278, Leadville, CO 80461-1278, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
One of the best things going on in Leadville is the St. George Community Meal Program. The dedication that Revs. Ali and George Lufkin, and their countless volunteers have shown over the years is quite palpable. Every week they make it happen!
Whether it’s feeding the hungry, or simply creating a welcoming place where people from all walks, can gather around a table, an altar, or a stage, St. George Church is an integral part of the local community.
While the Community Meals program runs year-round, during the summer months the program has a need for volunteers (individuals or groups) who would be willing to “Adopt-A-Meal” one Saturday. Or maybe even one Saturday a month?
For those interested in helping, they would come at 4 p.m. with a simple meal prepared and ready to serve, or you may borrow the church’s large pans, if needed. Meal service would be for approximately 30 people. A Meal Coordinator would be there to greet you, help you serve the meal, clean up and available for any questions or assistance.
Please call Ali at 719-486-4731 if you have any interest. St George Church is located at 200 W 4th Street in Leadville.
