Successful Silent Auction / Dinner last Saturday

First off I wanted to thank every person and business that donated items for the Silent Auction, the items were impressive and great for bidding!   The Steak and Chicken dinner was served to 92 people and I believe everyone enjoyed the meal.  There was some competitive bidding on many items and the Red Feather Lakes Community Association was able to net over $2900 in this fundraiser to help with maintenance on the building.  Thank you all for supporting this community event and making it a success!   Caryn Hughes, Office Manager.   Photos too large to Post.Red Feather

There will be a delicious BBQ  dinner together with a silent auction on Saturday, August 20.  Doors open at 4:30 PM with the BBQ dinner beginning at 5 PM.  The cost of the dinner is $15/person with a choice of steak or chicken.  The event is being organized and staffed by the POA board and other volunteers.  This event is in place of the Reverse Drawing Dinner which was held for many years.  Unfortunately, that event became unaffordable due to increased food costs, difficulty in obtaining sufficient donations, low participation, and very high labor demands.  This new event is intended as a POA fund raiser.  It is expected that the dinner itself will be supported by the ticket price and auction proceeds will be profit for the POA.  Tickets are available now at the POA office and the Trading Post, no later than August 15th.  Showing  some auction items.

4th of July Weekend Thank You!

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!

Basil at the 181 adds new flavors to Red Feather Lakes

Courtesy – The Fort Collins Coloradoan, April 5, 2016
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.
