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.”

Winning Best Trunk prize, given by the Delta County Chamber of Commerce judges Karen Falls, Jennifer Dwyer and (not pictured) Mindy Hicks, was Chuck Colvin, Dinah Stowers, Barbara Colvin, Jennie Pickering and Lou Ann Murray group.

Three Rusty Nails Church sponsored a very popular Fall Festival on Halloween Saturday following the Trunk o’ Treat on the Square in Cooper.

“We want to make sure to thank all of our local business, Delta County Sheriff’s officers and volunteer fire department for all of their support directing traffic and providing parking spaces for the event,” said Three Rusty Nails Church Pastor Kaleb Wright. “We had over 1,700 people attended the event. This might have been the first traffic jam Cooper has seen.”

This year’s 2015 Chiggerfest event is bigger and better than ever with surprises around every corner of the Square – mechanical bull rides, antique tractor pull, wine tasting, dunking booth, cake walk, unique fried treats and more!

It was another evening of brain storming on the part of Delta County Chamber of Commerce Directors Monday night.

“What in the world is Chiggerfest?” That inquiry spurred a barrage of possibilities.

Entertainment was Comedian Daryl Felsberg.
