The Lyons Area Chamber of Commerce announces another successful campaign to collect items from Chamber members for “Lyons Welcomes You.” This program welcomes new residents in the greater Lyons area with a welcome bag that is full of goodies from Chamber members.
Working with realtors, the Chamber committee identifies people who have recently purchased homes in the area. The Town of Lyons also helps to identify those new residents moving into the town limits. If you are new to the area or know someone who is, please register for a bag on the Lyons Chamber website at lyons-colorado.com. The number of welcome bags are limited, one welcome bag per household, offered on a “first come first served” basis.
This is a partial list of Chamber members who contributed (the rest will be published in a future Lyons Recorder edition). Thank you, members.

As the weather has warmed (it’s hard to believe we were getting a nine inch snow storms just last month) Lyons Fork Chef Ian Rubenoff has been casting a critical eye on the herbs that are now in full bloom in the planting beds on the back patio when he arrives every morning for work. Smelling the redolent aroma of fresh basil, mint, thyme, chives, and tarragon his mind immediately begins to churn. . . “What new dish can I create to take advantage of this early summer bounty?”Read more: The Fork Is Open For Lunch

Two Lyons natives have taken a different angle on Colorado’s emerging marijuana industry by inventing a board game. Mike Ginwright and Robb Deeter, both of whom graduated in the 1980’s from Lyons High School, threw around the idea of making a board game based on marijuana in Colorado since they were eighteen or nineteen years old.
When medical marijuana was legalized decades later they picked the idea up again and ran with it. The result is the Colorado Cannabis Craze produced by their company, Hilljack Entertainment.Read more: Lyons Natives Create Marijuana Board Game
