Wow! A gloomy week with frost, and snow on its way. But, it is supposed to be warmer by the weekend. Yes, fall is here but winter is near.

Folks are invited to the Lyons Redstone Museum on Thursday, October 11, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., for the program on “How We Saved Our High School (1948-1970).

Another week gone by. Lovely fall weather, cool in the evenings, the leaves are starting to turn, the apples need to be picked, and harvest taken in. We are hoping to have a long colorful fall.

BENEFIT GARAGE SALE at 306 Evans each weekend through October (weather permitting); Fridays noon to 4 p.m., and Saturdays 10 to 4 p.m. If you see the “We Are Open” sign otherwise, stop by!

Lots of varied things each week. Our “stuff” is your treasure. Pay what you think it is worth. The funds will go toward the five-year code checkup in the museum by the Fire Monitoring System, which will cost $1800. Donations appreciated! Send to Box 9, Lyons, CO 80540

 

 

Another week gone by! It is now fall where we enjoy the beautiful fall colors and the cooler temperatures. Highway 66 through Lyons is jammed with cars of leaf peepers. It will soon be snowing, so enjoy the fall colors.

Another week gone by. And it was a busy one. But it was nice to have remembrances of the Flood of 2013 and to reconized the recovery progress.

Governor Hickenlooper was more than pleased having a loop trail in Lyons named the HickenLOOPer Way; he certainly did a lot for Lyons and the entire area. Thanks to all who participated in the event on Monday. Yes, five years and the town is slowly recovering.

 

 

Another week gone by. Many memories of the September 2013 flood five long years ago. Thanks to the Town for having the wonderful remembrance event on Monday; a good crowd, lovely weather, and great speakers.

We were highly honored to have Senator Bennet, LHS student Hailey Odell read her poem “What if?,” Mayor Connie Sullivan, Lee dePalo from FEMA, Director Mike Willis of DHSEM, Governor Hickenlooper, all speak. Also, Mindy Tallent spoke about the small business perspective on resilience, and there was a tree planting and dedication with

 

 

Another week gone by. The local schools have started. Thanks for the community BBQ, which was a nice way to get the high school football season started. But the local boys got beaten by those tough Holyoke Farmers. The game on Friday will be at Idaho Springs. Better luck against the Miners. 

 

 

Another week gone by. The Lyons High School girls lost their last two basketball games and will not be going to the state tournament. Clear Creek will be going for our division. The 1A and 2A games start Thursday at the Budweiser center in Loveland. We want to express our thanks and appreciation to our Lyons team.

They did well, and gave us spectators a lot of excitement. Eight teams of boys and girls, out of some forty teams in Class 2A, get to go to state. For the boys it's:
