The Summit Community Orchestra is seeking more string players. If you play an orchestral string instrument, we have a spot for you. We are especially in need of violins. The SCO is a nonprofit, volunteer orchestra in Summit County under the direction of Kenneth Evans. It is composed of fine musicians from Summit and surrounding counties. Our mission is to promote joy and appreciation of classical music in the community through offering free concerts and providing educational opportunities for young musicians. If interested, call Ann at (970) 262-1880.

Mark your calendars for a celebration of local and seasonal food at Vinny’s Euro American Restaurant in Frisco on Oct. 4. The dinner is a special, one-night-only feature of healthy recipes made with fresh and seasonal ingredients donated by local farmers and community gardens. It’s a unique opportunity to celebrate fall, show appreciation for all things local and support grassroots conservation efforts in Summit County. Proceeds benefit the High Country Conservation Center. Contact us at (970) 668-5703 or at for more info.
