Two Rivers MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) are participating in Operation Christmas Child again this fall. They are again manning a collection site at Mountain View Church in Glenwood Springs. In years past, local families, churches, businesses, schools and organizations have had to drive their gift-filled shoeboxes to Grand Junction or Denver. This year, having a drop-off site in Glenwood makes it very convenient for folks to get involved in Operation Christmas Child.

It’s not too late to put a shoebox together. Brochures can be found at the Glenwood Springs branch library, the Community Center, and Once Upon a Child. Last drop-off is at 3 p.m. today.

Drop-off hours at Mountain View Church during National Collection Week are from noon to 2 p.m. today.

The Western Colorado Chapter of Independent Contractors will host a dinner with guest speaker Larry Mullins, executive vice president of National IEC, at 6:30 p.m Monday, Nov. 20, at the Ramada Inn in Glenwood Springs. To RSVP, call 945-5793 or 876-5520.

Sarah Harter from Garfield County Public Health will give a presentation on avian flu at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 21, at the Glenwood Springs Community Center. The objective of the presentation will be to discuss seasonal flu, avian flu with emphasis on bio security for bird lovers, and pandemic flu and how to prepare yourself for an emergency. We’ll find out what birds are currently being infected and how far the avian flu has spread.

The program will be followed by coffee and dessert potluck, and is open to the public.
