Town Talk for August 10

The Eagle County Youth Conservation Corps would like to thank the Eagle Valley High School boys basketball team for its hard work during a recent Deep Lake Campground project. During their two-day project, teens worked with the U.S. Forest Service building new tent pad sites, removing noxious weeds and making other campground improvements. Money the team earned through the YCC and National Forest Foundation Ski Area Contribution Fund is being used to help purchase new team equipment and to offset costs of tournaments. The National Forest Foundation, chartered by Congress, engages America in community-based and national programs that promote the health and public enjoyment of the 193 million-acre National Forest System and accepts and administers private gifts of funds and land for the benefit of the national forests. For more info on how your youth group can earn money while working on public lands and learn about conservation, please contact Jennifer Rose at jennifer.rose@eaglecounty.us or 970-328-3712.

Directed by Yimou Zhang, “House of Flying Daggers” stars Ziyi Zhang (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”). It is the year 859, and the Tang Dynasty, one of the most enlightened empires in Chinese history at its height, is in decline. The emperor is incompetent, and the government is corrupt. Unrest is spreading throughout the land, and many rebel armies are forming in protest. The largest, and most prestigious, is an underground alliance called the House of Flying Daggers.

All film screenings are free and open to the public. Films may not be appropriate for all audiences. For more information on upcoming shows, call the Avon Public Library at 970-949-6797.
