Kids Night Climb, December 27

I'm sorry to report that we didn't make it up to the Kids Climbing Wall for the kids night climb yesterday. We were lured of by the warmth of our home and just couldn't get it together to bundle up to join in the fun.

We understand that there were a ton of folks out for the climb! Here are a couple of pix of the Roxby children climbing routes with local guides Chris and Clint.

Weehawken dance is sponsoring dance-a-grams that can be purchased as a fundraiser for $20. The girls are trying to raise money for a trip to Denver for a dance convention! We have 5 senior company members and 5 junior company members from Ouray, Ridgway and Montrose. Senior company Santas are Abby Purcell, Sydnee Kimmel, Natasha Hill, Conor Keenan. Junior company reindeer are Hunter Clapsadl, Mackenzie Gibbsm, Jordan Leo, Abigail Link, Nisha Sprowls. They dance their way around town to local businesses and restaurants. Dance-a-gram can be purchased for any occasion.
Steve and I were lucky enough to have our local dancers stop by and show off their talents. I must admit that I was a bit late in grabbing the camera and only captured a bit of the High Schoolers….

You gotta love a small town parade.

The Twelve Days of Christmas never looked to good!
