Self Reliance Expo a Success!
The First Elbert County Self Reliance Expo on August 13, 2022 Was a Success!
About the Self Reliance Expo
The fist ever SELF RELIANCE EXPO, hosted on August 13, 2022 at the Elbert County Fairgrounds, featured nearly 40 exhibitors and 16 demonstrations on a wide range of services, products, and information. The purpose is to help families get ready for whatever may be in our future. Supply chain issues, difficulty getting equipment parts, lack of available labor, increasing energy prices - and food prices - are all taking a toll on Colorado families. This expo helped citizens learn how to get prepared.

Thanks to our visitors and their donations!
Thanks to the hundreds of citizens who took advantage of Elbert County's first ever Self Reliance Expo! And thanks for your donations: the event raised $5,000 that will support the purchase of emergency supplies and equipment for our Sheriff's Department!
Thank you to keynote speaker Sheriff Norton!
Sheriff Norton gave a very encouraging talk: Our county is prepared for any emergency! He asks us to be our community's 'eyes and ears' and to keep the department updated on things they need to know about!
