Our theme this year, “Season’s Readings,” gives participants an opportunity to celebrate the characters and stories in their favorite book. It’s SNOW secret! Books are COOL and tis the season to be reading. It’s the 100 year anniversary of Scholastic Books so there are plenty of stories to chose from.
Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the Teller Senior Coalition and the Woodland Park Main Street organization.
Teller Senior Coalition Now in its 25th year, the Teller Senior Coalition Mission Statement is to provide services to Teller County senior citizens to enable them to live full, active, and independent lives. Teller Senior Coalition is an organization that helps seniors in Teller County age in place. They provide transportation, deliver meals to homebound seniors, provide homemaker services to keep their homes clean, case management counseling to address their issues and can install grab bars to keep them safe. Many seniors live in Teller County without family nearby, so the Teller Senior Coalition often becomes an advocate for our seniors.
Woodland Park Main Street (WPMS) Woodland Park Main Street is part of a nationwide movement striving to revitalize historic buildings, foster community among businesses, and create a place where people feel connected. WPMS does not build, buy or finance new development. They are contributors. Through their status as a Designated Main Street organization, they have access to grant monies for historic preservation and downtown revitalization. Their goal is to work in collaboration with key partners and organizations in planning for the future of downtown Woodland Park. Their volunteers help make it all possible!
