Community and Business

Around this time of year, families are gearing up for the holidays: Switching out short sleeves for sweaters, pulling out the decorations, planning meals, and getting gifts and cards ready to send out to their loved ones. But for those less fortunate, these holiday times add extra pressure.

Coretta Scott King once said, “The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” If her theory is correct, then the High Country community is among the greatest.

The Western Youth Network will be auctioning Christmas trees again this year, but the Festival of Trees will be different.

The holiday season can be emotionally stressful when you are coping with a loss of a loved one. The grief support services of Caldwell Hospice will offer multiple virtual opportunities via Zoom for Coping with the Holidays with considerations for COVID-19.
