Builders Association gears up for Home & Garden Show

The Four Corners Builders Association is sponsoring for the 14th annual Four Corners Home and Garden Show at the Montezuma County Fairgrounds on May 2 and 3.

This year’s show will again include a classic car show on Saturday, May 3, with prizes.

There will be some demonstration and hands-on activities, including an electronic recycling drop-off for a fee of $10 (desktop towers and laptops) as well as a free ink-recycling drop-off.

Raffle tickets for a variety of items will be available from different organizations.

There will be a pet house building contest and auction that is open for the public to participate in.

A favorite part is the silent auction of a variety of items, with the money going to continuing-education scholarships. This year, there will be a Montezuma-Cortez High School landscaping contest with three divisions. After the winner is announced, participants have a chance to buy it for their yard.

The Southwest Colorado Community College will be there with the 40-foot Learning Lab trailer with some hands-on demonstrations. Outside, SCCC will have area where show-goers may bring small items that the welders can work on during the show.

And for the third year, there will be a food drive for the Good Samaritan Center that gives participants a $1 discount on their gate fee.
