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!
