The Stepping Stones Transition Program has a tasty way to raise money.
More than 20 restaurants are donating food for the third annual Bite of the 'Boat fundraiser. Attendees can purchase $1 tickets to sample foods. Each food item costs between one and three tickets.

Stepping Stones is a transition program for Routt County students ages 18 to 21 who need additional help preparing for adult life. Stepping Stones provides training for independent living and social/emotional and occupational skills.
Last year's Bite of the 'Boat raised $4,000. Ben Yennie, a para-professional teacher's aide, hopes to exceed that number this year. He encourages residents to attend the event because "it's very social, there's people there from all over town, and it's just fun."
