Another week gone by; a dry one, and we need rain (not too much) or snow. I have faith we will get some spring snows, so here’s hoping.
The Town Board candidates forum last Wednesday was very well attended, with Craig Ferguson, President of the Chamber of Commerce, greeting folks and Joseph Lekarczyk, the moderator. Each candidate talked briefly about themselves and their desires for the board, answered many questions, and seemed well suited for the challenge. A big question was the
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:

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
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.
