Town Talk for Oct. 19

Vail, CO, Colorado
The Eagle River Youth Coalition staff team would like to thank everyone who helped make our fifth annual Valley Tastings: Food for Youth event a success. We could not have done it without our sponsors, restaurant partners, event volunteers and board members. Thank you for your commitment to collaborative positive youth development!

Tell us what’s going on around town so we can talk about it.


Call: 970-748-2933. Submissions must be received by noon prior to the day of desired publication.

Thanks for all the photo submissions. We really appreciate them, and we want you to have your photos back! Please pick up your photos at the front office of the Daily within 30 days. Photos not picked up by then will be filed in the infamous File 13, never to be seen again.

The Shaw Center will be receiving a warm touch this month, and you can help make it happen. Jodi Sforzo and the volunteer facilitators for the Shaw Center will be presenting Rocky Mountain Heating Pads as gifts to patients. These handmade heating pads provide instant heating comfort and may be put in the freezer overnight and used as a cold pack. Every heating pad that you purchase for $10 for the Shaw Center will be matched with a second heating pad! This is our third annual event and if you wish to be involved with this very special project, please contact Jodi at 970-376-7291.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

Eagle-Vail’s Harvest Party and Chili Cook-Off-will be Sunday from 4 to 6:30 p.m. on the Great Lawn by the Eagle-Vail Pavilion.

Pie raffle tickets will cost $5, and $10 for the Chili Cook-Off. Kids under 12 eat for free. Vote for your favorite chili. The winner receives a 2012 family pool pass to the Eagle-Vail pool. Proceeds benefit the Eagle-Vail Community Garden.
