December 18 – Woman of the Year, Ouray County Chorus and Community Cookie Tins
December’s WCOC meeting will include the announcement of the 2018 Woman of the Year a performance by the Ouray County Chorus and assembling cookie tins for Ouray County shut-ins.
The WCOC Woman of the Year is a woman nominated by the WCOC membership at the October and November meetings, and the individual selected has to have been a resident of the community for ten or more years, and she shall be known for her extraordinary dedication and service to the community, whether it be as a member of established organizations or on an individual basis.
The Ouray County Chorus enjoys coming to perform pieces from their recent holiday concert. The chorus group is a grant beneficiary from the WCOC.
Also during the meeting, cookie tins for county shut-ins will be assembled. We ask those attending the meeting to please bring 3-4 dozen cookies.
Food and cash donations will be collected for the Ouray County Food Pantry, and there will also be a Silver March (cash donation) collection for a local charity.
WCOC meetings are held at 1-3 p.m. at the Ouray Community Center, San Juan Room. Most meetings feature a unique program presenting guest speakers, men and women who lead “uncommon lives.” Following a break for refreshments, a short business meeting is held. The public is welcome.
