Dear Lyons Community
“That Hall girl is running for County Coroner!” dad excitedly announced on one of our visits to Lyons. “I am going to put a sign by the road.” he continued on. If he only knew.

Our dad was the only flood related casualty in Lyons Colorado. If he only knew how much care Emma Hall took with his family, how much time Emma spent on the phone and in person with us during the week that he was missing and after his body was found, how important this job is to Emma, and how important he was to her.

The grant proposal was approved, and the Lyons Revolving Loan Fund received approximately $50,000 of “seed” money.

The Lyons Dairy Bar, owned and operated by Kenyon and Juli Waugh, was the first business to apply for and receive a business loan from the Lyons Revolving Loan program (right around the time of the flood). Due to the evacuation of the town and the almost total shutdown of the
