The 4th Of July Weekend
Thank you to all those volunteers who contributed to this being a very successful experience for all. There were 58 participants in the fishing contest. The largest fish was 20 inches and the first caught was 3 minutes after the sound of the siren. Prizes and door prizes were given to the winners and many lucky boys and girls. The library book sale was held from Thursday through Saturday.
The Craft Fair was excellent. The vendors were plentiful, the merchandise was varied and appreciated. The band, GAS MONEY, played to an enthusiastic crowd. A special shout out goes to Lori and Pete Davis for organizing and managing the Craft Fair. Morning Star Church served almost 500 plates of barbecue lunch to hungry attendees.
The Parade was very well received. Notable participants were the ruling and soon to be crowned princesses, Caroline Vacante and her cousin Viley Marie Oleson. Special thanks to all the participants and to Hope and Kevin Williams who organized this venture. Following the parade, Veterans were honored at the Red Feather Lakes Community Park at the Veteran’s Memorial.
Despite a little rain, the Fireworks went of with a bang! (Sorry),The program was beautiful and enjoyed by a large and favorably vocal crowd.
The Lion’s Club hosted a well-attended Pancake Breakfast Sunday morning.
Bingo was held Sunday night and the POA building was filled to capacity. The payout of $85 per game was well received.
Some of the positive comments that were passed along were: “Loved the Band!”, It is amazing what this little town can do!”, and “Everyone is so friendly.”
All of these activities would not have been possible without the time, talents and support of the volunteers including the fire department and the Law Enforcement Officers. We sincerely thank you!

RED FEATHER LAKES — The little restaurant tucked away on Ramona Drive has been empty for a couple of years, but its history goes way back in this mountain community about 45 miles northwest of downtown Fort Collins.
The former High Country Inn was famous for its fried chicken, attracting diners from the surrounding towns, Wyoming and Fort Collins.
When the High Country closed in late 2010, it stayed empty for about 18 months before new owners opened The Wandering Moose in 2012. That lasted a couple of years.
Now, Chili Valdez and his wife, Tamara, have opened Basil at the One Eighty One, a restaurant and bar at 181 Ramona Drive.
For all you vendors from previous years and new vendors looking to participate, we are now accepting registration for our July 4th Celebration craft fair to be held Saturday July 2, 2016.
RFLPOA July 4th Celebration Craft Fair Registration
You may be aware of a decision by the RFL Plan Advisory Committee to raise funds and install a Red Feather Lakes Village sign on CR 74E just to the east of CR 67J which leads into the village. The sign is in the County road right-of-way and the POA will be responsible for the sign if any maintenance is required. If you look to the right as you approach CR 67J, you can’t miss it. The cost was about $4000. To date, a little over $3000 has been raised and spent. Donations are requested and can be dropped off at the Trading Post or sent to the POA office: RFL POA, PO Box 350, Red Feather Lakes, CO 80545. Below is a picture of the newly completed project. The sign itself is 3 1/2 feet high and 7 feet wide. The overall height of the stone work is 7 feet above grade and the arrow is 18 1/2 feet long. Please help us complete payment for this great addition to our community.
Many thanks to the Lions for their donation of $500.
The community well on Main St. to the west of the Post Office is for the use of residents and visitors. Over the years, the cost of weekly testing and water treatment has increased significantly, amounting to over $1,100/yr in 2015. This does not include the cost of electricity and building maintenance. The POA Board decided there needs to be a method of cost recovery. Therefore, we have installed a collection container and sign at the well. Please contribute to this handy water source when you take water for your needs
We have been meaning to include POA Newsletters on this site for several years, but just have not gotten around to it. Here is the latest that was mailed out to members last week. If you would like a printed copy and did not receive one, please call the POA office or use the “Contact” link on this site. 2016_01_30_17_02_21Jan News Letter – Color
