This Spring, the Crested Butte Library, in conjunction with the Foreign Policy Association, is hosting an eight-week discussion series. Great Decisions is the largest discussion program on world affairs in the United States. Participants will read a short article each week to familiarize themselves with the topic. Then at the meeting, we will watch a short documentary video clip and engage in a moderated discussion. PDFs of the reading materials (which are produced by the Foreign Policy Association) are available by clicking the links below or you can visit the library for hard copies. The discussions will focus on the following topics: February 28: Outer Space + bonus: Changing Demographics March 7: Climate Change March 14: Russia & the U.S. March 21: Myanmar & ASEAN March 28: Quad Alliance April 4: Drug Policy in Latin America April 11: Industrial Policy April 18: Biden’s Agenda Please email [email protected] for more information or to receive the virtual meeting link.
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
