Fundraising fashion show set for Oct. 23

Maurice’s will host the second annual Rescues and Runways fashion show at 2 p.m. Oct. 23 at Centennial Mall, 1111 W. Victory Way.

The show, which also includes a silent auction, is a fundraiser for the Humane Society of Moffat County and the Craig Animal Shelter.

In 2009, the event raised nearly $1,000 for the organization.

The fashion show will include about 30 area teenagers modeling clothing from Maurice’s. Organizers said they hope to use animals available for adoption in the show, as well.

For more information about the event, call Maurice’s at 824-7393.

Volunteers sought for tree planting

The Colorado Environmental Coalition, The Wilderness Society and Friends of Northwest Colorado are working with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at Browns Park National Wildlife Refuge to restore cottonwood forests along the Green River, and invite the public to join two workdays later this month.

The workdays are scheduled for Oct. 22 and 23. Groups will meet in Steamboat Springs and Craig, and then travel to Browns Park.

Volunteers will work to transplant trees and install protective fencing. All volunteers are welcome, including families and residents of all ages and abilities.

Registration is required for the event. For more information and to RSVP, e-mail Sasha at, or call her at 824-5241.
