Jan. 16th, 2016 - Book Drive & Potluck

We'll be starting 2016 with a book drive and potluck event that will both help our community and help our members further get to know one another. We are seeking book donations for our Little Free Library that will be placed in downtown Fruita. The library is still under construction, but we'd like to make sure we're able to stock it and keep it fully stocked in the future. Book donations of nearly all genres are welcomed and will be made available to the public as part of the lending library system. We will also be having a potluck that everyone is encouraged to attend. Come out and join fellow HDG members for some food, sharing ideas and further getting to know one another. If you can come up with a book theme for your potluck item, you'll get some bonus points (maybe it's best to avoid Green Eggs and Ham though?).

When: Saturday, January 16th from 10:00 am to Noon

Where: Garden Room at The Commons (625 27 1/2 Road)

Dec. 25th, 2015 - Treat Delivery


We are seeking volunteers who can help deliver treats to people throughout the valley who we find working or otherwise away from their families during the holiday. Our goal is to surprise people with our baked treats and brighten their day as a good deed. Volunteers who have done this in the past have had a great time and it is always nice to make others smile. We ask that anyone who would like to volunteer to deliver treats please try to also attend the treat packaging party on the 24th so that you can pick up your treats for delivery at that time.

When: Friday, December 25th (You can choose to deliver your treats any time before 5:00 pm)

Where: We ask that you coordinate with us to cover a particular area of town that other volunteers will not be covering.
