Christmas tree fundraiser ongoing

The Craig Lion's Club annual Christmas tree sale is from 3 to 8 p.m. each day in the parking lot of Kmart, west of McDonalds. Proceeds go toward scholarships. Prices range from $30 to $70, with three sizes ranging from 5 to 10-foot trees.

Tobacco-free quit kits available

Tobacco-free quit kits for smokers and chewers are available at the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association offices in Craig at 745 Russell St. and in Steamboat Springs at 940 Central Park Drive, Suite 101.

The kits promote the Colorado QuitLine and free support from a trained coach who guides and supports individuals through the quitting process. Research shows tobacco users are seven times more likely to end the tobacco habit with the QUITLINE than if they try to quit on their own.

Four weeks of free nicotine patches are available, a $100 value. Nicotine gum is also available.

Call 1-800-QUIT-NOW (784-8669). Call the VNA at 871-7664 for further assistance.

The Youth Wellness Initiative is scheduled to meet from 5:45 to 7 p.m. Tuesday at Moffat County High School Room 308. Refreshments will be provided. For more information or to RSVP, call Diane Miller at the VNA 871-7609.
