The climbing wall at Cedaredge Middle School is extending the hours it is open to the public. It will be open 6 to 9 p.m. Monday and Friday nights between Dec. 22 and Jan. 2. It makes a fun family outing, with harnesses to fit nearly everyone, including the smallest climbers.

Families filled the community center dining room for opportunity to create their own classic holiday treat ­— a real house of gingerbread with all the trimmings imaginable.
It was also an occasion for families to enjoy a holiday tradition, to bond, and to create memories that will last forever.
Habitat for Humanity  board member Perry Hotz, who originated the local event, told the DCI that it was just a “wild idea” that came to him for starting the holiday tradition here. The idea has obviously filled a need in the valley.

The many lighted and decorated entries gave fits to the judges trying to choose the best.

A big gathering of smart Christmas shoppers let Santa’s elves do some of the  holiday heavy lifting this year by handling their baking chores at the Little Sprouts Community Preschool annual cookie walk fundraiser.
The event is a fundraiser held in the basement of the Cedaredge Community United Methodist Church, which is also the major sponsor of the community preschool.

Not only has Connie been a great supporter of the local arts community, but her own talent is amply displayed in  murals that decorate Delta and in her framed works that have appeared on the walls of local institutions and at local art shows for years.
