What a great turnout, more than the directors and I ever imagined!” said 2016 Chamber President Kathy Houchins. “There was lots of great food, entertainment and fellowship among our great people in Delta County – so many great compliments from those who attended the Delta County Chamber banquet. Monty Tipps band is tops in my book. It was great music for this year’s crowd.”

Last year local law enforcement and fire fighters teamed up for a toy drive in Delta County called Blue and Red Santa.

The Delta County Sheriff’s Office and other Delta County law enforcement are partnering again this year with all Delta County Fire Departments and EMS in an effort to gather Christmas toys for needy children in this area - for Blue and Red Santa.  Across the country law enforcement agencies are involved in toy drives for needy families and these events are generally named Blue Santa.  In Delta County our law enforcement ranks are rather small so they partner with the Delta County Fire Departments and EMS thus the name Blue and Red Santa.

Delta County is making sure everyone has a warm and joyous holiday season. This year the season starts on Saturday morning, Dec. 5 with the Spirit of Giving event at the Delta County Civic Center at 11 a.m.

“This community outreach program was started four years ago so that we might give back to the community that we love so much.  We will have stations set up for bicycles, toys, coats, stuffed stockings, blankets and household items,” said Amanda Sepulveda, organizer. “Each person who attends, adults and kids, will be given a set number of tickets and will then be able to purchase items with their tickets.”
