Harvest Carnival

Saturday, October 17th


 Harvest Carnival cannot exist without the help of volunteers!  Please sign up to help set-up games, take tickets at each game, serve food, and clean-up.  This is a huge event and it takes many volunteers to help things run as smoothly as possible.  Sign-up sheets are in thefront lobby.  If you have any questions, please contact Shelly Nij at 970-749-8302.

After-School Science Club is meeting on Thursdays, starting September 10th.  

VOLUNTEERS: We need volunteers.  No science background is needed and you can volunteer for just one week or for one session or for all the sessions!  Volunteers must complete the 9R Authorized Volunteer form.  We are also looking for spring session ideas.  To volunteer, or talk over session ideas please email Kristin Toppin at
