TRTC and KDNK Dance Party

Thunder River Theatre Company is proudly helping their good friends at KDNK celebrate their annual membership drive. At 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 21, TRTC is co-sponsoring and hosting Carolyn Wonderland and her band for KDNK. KDNK and TRTC want to thank the community for the success of KDNK’s membership drive by giving music lovers a chance to celebrate and dance to some spectacular, explosive music. Crews are already polishing the dance floor and cooling down the refreshments at the theatre. Admission is $15 ($10 for KDNK members). Plan on attending and arriving on time because the dance is limited to 200 revelers and supporters of KDNK.

Literacy Outreach seeks volunteers

Make a difference by teaching someone basic literacy skills. One hundred adults are waiting to learn in Garfield County. Literacy Outreach needs your help teaching basic literacy skills to adults, including basic reading, writing and math to native English speakers and oral English skills to non-native speakers. Volunteers do not need to speak a foreign language or have prior teaching experience, just a desire to help, the ability to read and speak English, and three hours of time per week to work with an adult.

Literacy Outreach will provide interested volunteers with more information regarding the requirements and rewards at a volunteer informational session from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 21, at the Teo Prinster Learning Center, 1127 School St. in Glenwood Springs. Call 970-945-5282 or visit for more information.
