This week, the Monday senior meal was prepared by the River Church. It's always good. Next week's meal will be provided by the Catholic Community, and the weekly Wednesday and

Friday meals are sponsored by Boulder County. The seniors all really appreciate this.

Breakfast is now being served at the Lyons Dairy Bar, starting daily at 6 a.m. Stop by.

These concerts are always very enjoyable. Come one and all.


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,

Another week gone by, as well as another year. This weekend is the 41st annual Good Old Days celebration; a lot smaller than it used to be, but we are still having it!  A time for all Lyons friends and family to get together; 

CONGRATULATIONS to Smokin' Dave's BBQ and Tap House, which has been chosen as “One of the Two Best” in Colorado. We heartily agree! Mmmmm



Another week gone by, and we were among the lucky ones for not having too many inches of that wet heavy snow. Just about three inches in all, but with lots of moisture. It was amazing how much snow some areas got! 35” in Allenspark, 24” in Estes Park, with Highway 36 between closed between Apple Valley and Estes. Cheyenne was snowed in. Wow!  Truly a spring blizzard, which broke many limbs. But, it melted fast.

It going to be a long hot summer, which has come in with a bang! It is hard to get used to, when the spring has been so cool. Get out your fans and air conditioners.

Sunday, June 18, is Fathers' Day, the time to remember our fathers;  the men in our lives who contributed to our welfare; those who said “no” and meant it, and the ones who did the hard work to keep us going. Yes, we appreciate our dads. I am



Another week gone by! Beautiful spring weather with lots of flowers, sunny days, not too hot, and a little rain. It would be nice if it stayed this way. It was truly a busy week, with the choir concerts, baseball, the Planet Bluegrass annexation hearing, restoration recognition, a museum open house, etc. What a busy town. The next big thing is the high school graduation coming
