In the midst of a complex yet inevitable decision to remove the upper portion of the aged 215-year-old Ute Council Tree, I applaud the actions taken by the good people of our Delta County Historical Society.
The course of action was well thought out and costly, but nonetheless came summarily as the protection of life and property was the Delta County Historical Society's number one priority.
Much appreciation also goes to the City of Delta for the many years of maintaining the Council Tree Arbor at Confluence Park. The six saplings from the Ute Council Tree that now surround the arbor are in good hands.
Delta's second annual "Kickoff to Christmas" takes place Saturday, Nov. 25. This event is sponsored by the Delta Area Chamber of Commerce and First Colorado National Bank.
