Angel Fire Resort Announcement

Angel Fire Resort Childcare and Preschool announced today they will cease spring through fall operations effective May 1, 2015. The resort plans on providing winter childcare (December-March) moving forward for employees, locals and visitors, along with Snow Bear Camp and the 3 Ski Program.

Angel Fire Resort Childcare and Preschool has been in business for over 30 years. During this time Judy Vallier, Director of Childcare and Preschool, has created a safe and nurturing environment for our children and achieved a highly acclaimed, four star rating for their Preschool program.

The decision to close the summer services was an exceptionally difficult one for resort management. For me it has been very personal. My involvement with developing childcare goes back to when it was called “Lil’ Angels” and was housed in the former portable building as part of the Children’s Center. After all these years, it came down to the reduction in the number of year-round participants necessary to keep the operation financially viable. Despite a number of attempts over the past ten years to restructure the operations and create financial sustainability, the resort has subsidized business losses of over $300,000.

We are extremely grateful to the dedicated Childcare staff along with the families that have utilized the childcare and will work closely with them on this transition. We hope our treasured employees will choose to keep working at Daycare for the winter seasons and every effort is being made to find summer employment for those who want it.

Should you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Military Appreciation Ski Weekend

ski-weekendWe need your help. This appreciation weekend could bring in a few thousand veterans, active military, and their families. Key to making this a successful event is for participants to know how much Angel Fire values them and their service. we want to do this in tangible benefits and personal welcomes.

When: February 20-22, 2015

Where: Angel Fire Ski Resort

The Resort has extended extraordinary discounts, but we want visitors to enjoy our entire community. We encourage businesses to participate tangibly in one of three ways:

1. Provide at least a 25% discount generally or for some lead product or service, e.g. equipment rentals, entrees, popular gift items, etc

2. Provide up to 1,000 small items we could place in “Swag Bags” that will be given to each family, e.g. your branded chap stick, coupons, stickers, buttons, etc.

3. Cash donations. If the first two are not convenient, funds are still needed to support weekend activities. In future years, we will seek major funding from more regional and national enterprises so we don’t have to ask local businesses for direct financial support.

All businesses that provide any of the above will be provided an American flag to display at your business so participants can easily spot where they will get great deals or who has supported them.

The most important outcome is how we welcome our military guests. We have done this naturally for decades so we know all of us who work in the village will excel!

Your donation is tax deductible. Not Forgotten Outreach is a 501(c)(3) (IRS #46-2052184) and is managing the finances at both locations. If your support is financial, please annotate “Military Ski Weekend” on your check to NFO.

Thank you,

Mike Liddle
Fundraising Chairman for Angel Fire Weekend
