Scene … at United Way Skate Day at the Pagosa Springs Youth Center — another successful event, as the Pagosa Youth raised $500 for Archuleta County United Way.   Every year for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Center hosts an all day stay and play day where elementary and middle school kids hang out and enjoy breakfast and lunch, skate, play games, do crafts and watch movies while school is closed for the day.  Staff and member and community volunteers entertained 61 children while parents went about their daily routines.  Donations to United Way are gratefully appreciated so the campaign goal can be met. There are 18 non-profit partners in Archuleta County that receive support from United Way; Pagosa Springs Youth Center is one.  For more information go to www. unitedway-swco.org.
