Ouray County fashion show kicks up its heels

The women of Ouray County enjoyed a Saturday together at the Friends of the Library Fashion Show and Luncheon. According to event coordinator Barbara Morss, the event went smoothly with very few problems. Proceeds from Saturday's well-loved event will go toward the purchase of new books for the Ouray Public Library. Additionally, members of the Friends group who have passed away in the last year were remembered for their contribution to the community. This year, Barbara Peterson was remembered at the event. A book plate dedicated to Peterson will be in each new book purchased for the library.

"I was very pleased with the outcome," planning commission chair Ken Lipton said this week, adding that some of the planning commissioners he spoke to after the hearing were also pleased.
