SOUTH FORK— Community Banks of Colorado in South Fork will again be hosting the giving tree within their South Fork branch. Beginning on Dec. 1, the bank will host an open house event with warm beverages and light snacks. Patrons and residents of South Fork wishing to participate can stop by and choose an envelope from the tree. The envelope contains a Christmas wish from one of many children in need from the area. Participants can purchase the gift and return it, wrapped, to the bank. Presents will be delivered by Christmas. Contact the South Fork branch at 873-5562.
