For anyone looking for an inexpensive lunch for a good cause, the Bank of Colorado staff has what you need this week.

Bank staffers will host a barbecue for the community from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday in the building's parking lot at 250 W. Victory Way. A hot dog plate will be $3 and a hamburger plate $5, with other picnic-style food also available.

"People can come by, or we're also doing pre-orders," said Audrey Anna Charchalis, a loan officer for the bank. "If any of the businesses in town want to pre-order for their employees, we can bring them to them."

Proceeds will go to the bank's Relay For Life team, Pirates of the CURE-ibbean.

"We've gotten a lot of good responses from other businesses and most of the stuff is donated, so almost every penny will be going to the Relay, and all that money goes to the American Cancer Society," Charchalis said.

Charchalis said this is the first year Bank of Colorado has organized a team for the event, with 13 people filling out the roster. Also around the bank building are jars for patrons to donate their age in change.

For example, a 25-year-old would chip in a quarter or more.

"We've got a lot of help and support from our customers," Charchalis said.

Charchalis is also arranging for another fundraiser later in the month with Vallarta's Mexican Restaurant.

"We've also been wearing our pirates shirts on Wednesdays, so it's been really fun so far and hopefully it's something we can carry on in the future," she said.

Store offering deals on boating, fishing supplies

To beat the summer heat, sometimes a cool dip in one of Northwest Colorado's bodies of water beats staying home with the air conditioner on full blast, especially when there's an outlet for everything needed to do the season right, whatever your price range may be.

Auto Parts of Craig, 1875 W. Victory Way, is stocked for the summer with a wide selection of boating and fishing supplies in addition to the automotive inventory.

"We've had boating stuff for three years, and this is the second year we've had the fishing stuff," co-owner Rich King said.

King said the business offers new and used boats from trawlers to pontoons, as well as rafts and life vests sized for adults, children and pets.

As for fishing supplies, the store is full with plenty of poles, spinners, hard-to-find lures and the all-important element, bait.

For customers who find success on the water, the store also features a wall of snapshots of fish of all sizes and the people who caught them, ranging from locations in Alaska to Costa Rica.

Auto Parts of Craig, available at 824-6544, is open from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday.
