The air was filled with anticipation the night of Nov. 15 at the Blue Sage Center for the Arts in Paonia as 10 local non-profit representatives shared their organization’s vision and goals prior to receiving a portion of the $34,375 grant money from the West Elk Community Fund (WECF).

Elaine Brett, co-chair for WECF, opened the evening with a brief explanation about Western Colorado Community Foundation, the umbrella organization over WECF. Western Colorado Community Foundation (WCCF) serves seven counties in Western Colorado providing funds in health and human services, education, arts, culture, environmental services and others.
