THANKSGIVING IS HERE; a time for us all to say thank you. To all who saved us from the flood; to all who helped everyone; to all who came and are still coming to help; to all the volunteers from Lyons and everywhere; to all the students who gave to our school’s programs; to all for your support; for the hot meals after the flood, and our Thanksgiving dinner. It is truly overwhelming how helpful and caring folks are!

Another week gone by, and things are getting better in Lyons.  More utilities were turned on this weekend with more people in their homes, more businesses opening up in town, just a night patrolman, but still curfew10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Debris is being picked up, more roads and streets opened; some areas do not have utilities yet, but will within a week or two.  The report was good for most, but not pleasing to the areas that cannot have gas unless they have water. PATIENCE is the word!

NOVEMBER 11, IS VETERANS DAY. Yes, a day to honor our veterans of all wars, who fought for us through the years since 1776, because we did not like the English rule.   Since then we have had many wars, and they are still happening, luckily not in America. But our service men and women are sent to fight overseas, all for the cause to keep Americans save.  We truly owe each and every one of them our deep gratitude. “The Land of the Brave, and the Home of the Free”  God bless and keep you all!

Our thanks to the Lyons High School and other bands of the St. Vrain District who participated in the Veterans Day Parade in Longmont on Monday.

I moved to Colorado from Texas right out of college when I was hired to teach in Jefferson County. I stood awestruck at the sight of Red Rocks Amphitheater from the playground of Bear Creek Elementary. Amazed, I listened to my second graders talk about collecting arrowheads at nearby Soda Lakes. Our favorite unit included dinosaurs and a field trip to the Natural History Museum in Denver. That was a long time ago.
