What a perfect day for the 19th annual Dinner and Auction at the Mountain Aire Festival! This yearly event which not only brings many of the locals together, but also neighbors from near and far who come each year to visit, eat and then bid at the auction on the many handmade treasures, services, restaurant meals and many other items that are donated by so many generous individuals, businesses and others to insure that Faith Circle has the funds from the proceeds to support their outreach programs, ministry and mission work throughout the year in the Greenhorn Valley when needed.

In 2018 the Circle was able to come to the aid of 2 local families with funeral expenses and travel after the loss of a loved one and were able to provide 135+ gifts & clothes for children of 53 families in the valley at Christmas time, provided lodging at a local motel for family with car problems. The Circle also was able to provide help to a family who lost their home to a fire at Christmas time, contributed to the purchase of supplies needed for fire fighters who were fighting the Spring fire in the La Veta area, funded the Angel tree gifts for local families whose parents were incarcerated at Christmas and gave many others a helping hand when they were in need.

Each year as needs change, they determine where the money is best spent to fill in the gaps; they do not try to take over the responsibility of individuals, just ‘soften’ life’s challenges. Faith Circle would like to thank you for all of your support in coming to this ‘Event’ for the past 19 years that enables and supports these mission projects!

The Faith Circle ladies said that Kohl’s Department Store in Pueblo has given them such good service and prices on the clothing items that they buy for the children at Christmas and other needed times. In appreciation of the Circles continuing patronage and to give a helping hand, Kohl’s donated $500 this year and also sent volunteers out, on the day of the Mountain Aire Fest to help with cleaning off the tables, doing the dishes and helping with whatever else was needed.

This ‘Event’ takes place at the Christenson’s beautiful ‘Brush Canyon Ranch’ nestled among the canyon rims and fir trees of the Greenhorn Mountains. The ranch is located just about 3 miles past Rye, Colorado.
