Here’s a way to share some sweetness on Valentine’s Day.
The Gypsum Creek Middle School PTO raising money by selling Krispy Kreme donuts. Delivery of the sticky, warm, sweet wheels is set for Monday, Feb. 14. It’s a great way to treat an office full of people on a Monday morning, but delivery is limited to Eagle and Gypsum.
Cost of the sweet treats is $7 per dozen, and all orders must be into the school office, paid in full, by Thursday, Feb. 10. Orders can be dropped off at the office, or mailed to: Gypsum Creek Middle School, P.O. Box 5129, Gypsum, Colo. 81637. Orders can also be sent in with students. For more information, call the school at 328-8980.
Let’s go to the hop
Those fun-loving seniors in Eagle are holding a 1950s-style sock hop on Friday, Feb. 11, starting at 5 p.m. at the Eagle County Fairgrounds.
The evening includes dinner and entertainment, including a troupe of seniors in poodle skirts and other ’50s paraphernalia
Tickets are $10 for adults, $6 for seniors and $5 for kids under 13. A family ticket is just $25, a screamin’ deal if there’s more than one kid in the family.
For more information, call 328-1005.
Vail’s firefighters are hosting a hot Valentine’s Day ball to help the tsunami relief effort in Southeast Asia.
The first-ever Firefighters Ball will be held at the Sanctuary in Vail Village, and the festivities begin at 7 p.m. Attire is “mountain formal,” which could be anything from a tux to who knows what. Mostly, we think it means whatever you wear should be clean, and not have any visible holes.
Party-goers get a couple of drink tickets, “elegant hors d’oeuvres” and dancing for their tickets, which are $75 for singles, $125 for couples. Money raised goes to UNICEF’s tsunami relief fund.
“We know there’s going to be a lot of single guys there,” said firefighter JR Rulapaugh. “So we hope a lot of single women come out.”
For more information, call Rulapaugh, 479-2250.
