Dear MVR Supporters:
Happy July! I hope you are all enjoying these beautiful rainy afternoons and long cool evenings. As we make our way through summer be sure to visit the Mancos Valley Farmers Market who hosted 16 vendors last week at Boyle Park. While you grab your veggies, stop by the old jail with your input for the Mancos Skate Park Facelift, a campaign of Mancos Wellbeing Project which is a collaboration between Montezuma Youth Alliance, The S.A.F.E Coalition and Mancos United.
MVR’s two big fundraisers are taking shape. The Mancos Valley Summer Brewfest will be held at the Mancos Brewery on Saturday, August 20th. Music will be provided by The Crags, The Lawn Chair Kings, and State 38. Breweries providing beer this year, along with Mancos Brewing Company, will be Bottom Shelf Brewery in Bayfield and Anarchy from Durango. Wine from Yellow Car Wines and cider from Outlier Cellars will also be featured. Ticket prices are $15 in advance and $20 at the gate, and a $5 student ticket for teenagers. Parking at the Mancos Brewery will be $5. Walking, biking and carpooling this year are strongly encouraged. Handicap access and needs will be accommodated.
The 4th annual Mancos Valley River Film Festival will be held on Saturday, September 24th at the Mancos Opera House. Stay tuned for information on the featured films, auction items and how to purchase tickets.
We appreciate you! Thanks for your continued support!
