Marshal’s Beautification

Published by under General Information

The La Veta Main Street beautification work is still continuing.   Christmas lights have been strung and  Holiday banners have been hung. And an important Town building has been painted.  The poor little Marshal’s office was badly faded and losing its former pink (?)  lustre. Town officials couldn’t find the money to repaint.  Bryce Blain stepped up and offered to buy all the paint for the project.  The outcome is wonderful. Our thanks to Bryce and Judy for this important Main Street visual impact contribution.

Holiday Art Fest in La Veta

Published by under Local News Affairs

We decked ourselves out for last Saturday night’s Progressive Dinner sponsored by SPACe as a fundraiser for their current building expansion project. We purchased the last 2 tickets for this sold-out event – and what an event it was! We began with hors doerves at Pinon Hill Pottery – deliciously prepared by Theresa Quiroga. We then proceeded to SPACe gallery where the tables were beautifully set with candles, a crisp salad bowl to share with our tablemates and French music in the background. Here the food was prepared by many volunteers using recipes by Judith Baker-Montano and served by our local high school girls. With the cool evening weather, we all walked to La Veta Fine Art Gallery where we were served a fabulous array of desserts. Down the block at North by Southwest, The Savages played their music and Jill Whitmore served wine at The Silver Dollar Building where she has set up a temporary Christmas gallery of her glass art. Congratulations to everyone involved for another WONDERFUL beginning to the holiday season!  We had a great time!  Liz Henson
