The 2018 Calendar Girls of Leadville project donated $10,620.36 to the Tabor Opera House Preservation Foundation! Photo by Marcia Martinek, Editor of the Herald Democrat (L-R, Stephanie Spong, Elise Sunday, and Laurel McHargue)

We were delighted to present this marvelous check to the Tabor Opera House Preservation Foundation President Stephanie Spong in February! Leadville Literary League would like to thank everyone who participated in this fun and worthwhile project.

2019 will be a year of planning and seeking out other literary endeavors, and we would love the continued support of friends who support the arts in all its forms.

Tax-deductible contributions in any amount for future projects should be mailed to:

Leadville Literary League
14337 County Road 193
Salida, CO 81201

and you will receive a letter from our non-profit organization as a receipt for tax purposes.

We are so very grateful for your support!

We are so very grateful to Elise Sunday, our photographer and editor  (owner of Fire On The Mountain in Leadville)  and Karen Onderdonk, our videographer (owner of IndigoMediaArts.co) for  volunteering their time and talent.

And, of course, we thank our wonderful, bold, brave women, our “Leadville Antiques: Uncovered” — our 50 and over models who agreed to participate in the celebration of life in support of a noble goal, the restoration and preservation of our historic treasure, the Tabor Opera House.
