Another week gone by, and still not much snow! It is getting scary. However, as long as they get snow in the mountains that will help.

THINGS THIS WEEK

HAMILTON TICKETS? I do not know of anyone who was able to get tickets to see the musical Hamilton in Denver. Such a long line and mad scramble! The producers should hold it over for another few weeks so everyone who wants to, can see it. But, they say it will be back next year.

 

 

A-h-h Colorado. The weekend cold and snow didn’t last long, and the sun was shining earlier this week. We need more snow, though! They say more might be in store for next week. Keep the water dripping in your faucets on these really cold days, and your cupboard doors under your sinks open.

 

 

Here we are the coldest day of the year, and a little snow. In Colorado they say it will warm up in a day or two, and we need the snow! But, B-R-R-R-R!

This week a reception for the grantees of the Lyons Community Foundation was held at Mojo Taqueria where each recipient was told what their grant money will entail. Very informative. On behalf of the Lyons Historical Society/Redstone Museum, Thank you LCF, you are a lot of help to all the non-profits to complete their goals.

It's 2018! May it be good to us. The town's recovery, with $30 million of work to do is ongoing. A capable Town Board will be elected in April. I am still term limited for two more years, and will be too old to run for another term. The Chamber received a $100,000 grant, which should bring in more tourism dollars. The local businesses seem to be doing well. The museum opens in May on weekends, and daily through

 

 

If the Coffintop Dam had been built, as originally planned, in the 1980s the Town of Lyons would be much different than it is today. If it had been built one wonders if the outcome of the 2013 flood might have been even more disastrous than it was. Would the dam have held? Given the geology of the area what would happen if

A BURGLARY was reported up Blue Mountain Road earlier this week. Keep your doors locks and have someone watch your house. If they get away with it, they will strike again! 
The ice rink is back, but it is cold weather dependent. But for now it is back. Lots of people having fun!

 

Well, we made it. The 41st annual Lyons Good Old Days celebration was deemed a success. Although, not near what it used to be. But, the pancake breakfast was revived, which helped a lot. Thanks to Oskar Blues for cooking it and the Lyons Volunteers serving it. It was a fundraiser for the Volunteers, and approximately one thousand dollars was taken in for their supplies. The 5K River Run was exciting with lots of awards and door prizes. The car show was great. The dedication of LaVern M. Johnson Park went off without a hitch,
