The live events industry has declared a red alert with over 1500 venues across the country illuminating their buildings in red at night to raise awareness about the financial strain of the pandemic. The goal is to encourage Congress to pass bipartisan legislation known as the Restart Act, sponsored by Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet. KVNF’s Gavin Dahl learned more from Sen. Bennet about the proposed law earlier this summer.

The exhibit features a series of interviews and photographs of North Fork Valley seniors created by local writer and photographer Rita Clagett.
