Press release level blue 3-3-2021

Our community has made great progress to bring the surge in COVID cases that occurred in late December through early February under control.  This has been made possible by the consistent and patient cooperation of individuals and businesses.

Montezuma County’s vaccination providers have done an outstanding job to immunize those at highest risk from COVID illness here.   That program continues and will require more to be immunized before we can truly relax.

County leaders have closely followed the data related to what qualifies a county to be at a given level on the state COVID Dial.  We now recognize that our data indicates that Montezuma County can safely function under the guidelines outlined at Level Blue.  We trust that CDPHE will agree with that assessment, but each county is best positioned to know the level of COVID disease in their community.

On the basis of our assessment of the COVID situation in Montezuma County, the BOCC designates us to be at Blue Level in terms of guidelines for business and community-wide activities.  

As always, we have the health of community members as our primary focus.  We feel confident that COVID illness here can be controlled. Vaccination is an important part of ridding COVID from the community.  Vaccinated persons are highly protected from serious illness or death from COVID-19. 

Please treat each other with respect.

DHS Operation Graduation 2021

Fundraiser by Dolores Graduation: DHS Operation Graduation 2021 (gofundme.com)

Dolores Graduation is organizing this fundraiser.

Operation Graduation is a community-sponsored program that takes place on graduation night for the Dolores High School seniors, providing a safe, fun and substance-free alternative for all graduates to enjoy.  This all-night party allows students to be together as a class one last time and includes many events and prizes to enjoy.
     
    In 1997, a pilot program began in Dolores with about half of the seniors attending.  It has grown in popularity each year with near, if not all, graduates enjoying the all-night “lock-in” affair.  This will be the 24th annual Operation Graduation and we are happy to report that there has not been a single accident or arrest on graduation night since the program was launched.   
   
    One of the many incentives for students to participate in this night of music, games, food and entertainment, is the chance to win big-ticket items resulting from donations by our generous partners.  In past years, students have taken home personal computers, laptops, mountain bikes or televisions.  Each graduate will also receive a tote or laundry basket filled with a variety of items for stocking their new dwellings as they venture out into the world.
   
     Our goal is to provide each and every graduate with both a memorable night and a selection of practical prizes and gifts to reward their academic accomplishments and commitment to a safe and sensible celebration.  This  event is funded 100% by generous donations and contributions from people like you, area businesses and the DHS community of family and friends.  Our sponsors are widely publicized during the time leading up to Operation Graduation and featured on promotional materials.   

    This celebration serves as an effective means to protect our students, as well as providing memories that will last a lifetime.  Please accept our invitation to become a sponsor to make Operation Graduation 2021 a success.  Donate now or contact one of the following members to find out more.
