Martin Luther King Jr. Day is Monday, Jan. 17, and it is also a Day of Service for AmeriCorps Volunteers.
In the spirit of collaboration and supporting the youth in Pagosa Springs, Soledad Leo and Jo Ferko, our AmeriCorps volunteers, will host an event with other community volunteers — a fun day of skating at the Pagosa Springs Youth Center from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m., with an opportunity to participate in an I Have a Dream mural.
There is no school that day and the center will have a pancake breakfast and serve hot dogs and hamburgers for lunch, as well as provide games, movies, skating and door prizes for the kids.
A donation of $10 is recommended for the event, with scholarships available.
Proceeds from the event will go to United Way and the youth center to help continue supporting youth programming in Pagosa Springs. Parents are welcome to stay and skate or participate with the event.
For more information, call 264-5030, or drop by the Pagosa Springs Youth Center next to Town Park after school.
