The ESA Sorority in Cedaredge recently held its monthly meeting and part of the agenda was to disperse funds from money-raising efforts in the previous year. Monies were raised from various activities including the annual Irish Stew, Pampered Chef luncheon, yard sale, craft sales, and community donations.
The local nonprofits that will benefit from this year's fundraising efforts include Friends of the Cedaredge Library, Delta County Ambulance District, local fire departments, Surface Creek Animal Shelter and Cedaredge Food Bank.
The sorority also hosts the annual Edge of the Cedars Art Show in June, and those funds raised were given as scholarships to students earlier this year. The members are thankful for the community's response to their fundraising efforts and look forward to next year's activities. Anyone interested in becoming a member or interested in helping with activities can call the officers Shirley Clayton, 970-856-3842, or Carol Vela, 970-835-3388.
