Donate Your Time
Join us and make a difference in Archuleta County!
We need help with a variety of activities and events.
Central and Executive Committees – We currently have vacancies on both committees. We are looking for someone to help coordinate our effort to reach out to the Hispanic Community, a Young Democrat (under 25), and precinct co-chair vacancies.
Volunteer Work for Our Community – We have planned events with the USFS, Audubon, Earth Day, Loaves and Fishes, and Habitat for Humanity. Come out and volunteer your time to help improve our community. We also are responsible for a two-mile section of US 84 south of Pagosa Springs for road cleanup under the Adopt a Highway program. Road cleanups are usually scheduled in Spring and Fall.
Events – We hold several regularly scheduled events and need help planning as well as at the events. These include July 4 parade, July 4 float decoration and design, July 4 Annual Picnic, County Fair Booth, and our annual Chili Supper and Cookoff. In election years we also hold our caucuses and County Assembly/Convention. Note that the COVID pandemic has affected a number of these events, but we hope for them to return in 2022.
