by LaRissa Morris and Kerrie Meyler
LA VETA/ CUCHARA — The La Veta/Cuchara Chamber of Commerce held its monthly meeting last Wednesday at the La Veta Public Library. Debra Malone attended the meeting representing the Scenic Highway of Legends, Inc. She is asking for donations to help reprint the beautiful Highway of Legends brochure, which is out of print. Continuing the status of the Highway of Legends as a scenic byway is very important to tourism in our community. The group is in need of funds to make this happen. It will cost $5,600 to print 10,000 copies. Please feel free to donate to Scenic Highway of Legends, 137 Cuchara Ave East, Cuchara 81055.
The chamber has agreed to donate $1,000 towards reprinting the brochure.
The La Veta/Cuchara Chamber is in charge of organizing the Independence Day Parade, which this year is Saturday July 7 in La Veta. This year’s theme is “Past, Present, and Future” in the Cuchara Valley. All entries are welcome.
The chamber and Huerfano County Economic Development sponsored the annual job fair on Saturday. Attendance was good and many employers and employees were successfully matched up. We would like to thank everyone for their attendance and participation.
Our chamber spring mixer will be held May 30. Members will be receiving invitations in the mail. The chamber continues to support the local business in our community.
