Fun rolls at skate night

The City of Monte Vista Recreation Department together with the Rio Grande Prevention Partners hosted the second Family Skate Night on Saturday, Nov. 4, themed “Winter Wonderland.” Ski Hi saw about 70 children and parents of all ages roller skating and playing games conducted by the SLV Roller Derby, who donated their time and brought skates for children to use. At $5 per family, the event raised money for both the Rio Grande Prevention Partners Youth Council and the recreation department. Another family skate night is tentatively scheduled in January, at the Monte Vista Ice Rink if weather permits.

    LETTER TO THE EDITOR: San Antonio trip a grand success

    I thought the recent trip to San Antonio with the Tri-County Senior Citizens was for seniors only. But I met several folks in their 50s and even friends or relatives that live out of state that were joining family members here. The best part of the whole trip was the great people we met and traveled with.
