Lyons resident Frank Adams, who passed away December 19, 2017, was a volunteer at the Lyons Regional Library. His wife Susan McCafferty passed away days before him on December 16. Adams, an accomplished chess player, volunteered along side Aaron Caplan on Monday afternoons teaching kids to play chess through the no-fee "Fun Chess Club!" sponsored by the Lyons Regional Library.
To memorialize Frank's support of the library, and his commitment to kids learning chess, the Lyons Regional Library wanted to do something for Frank's memory. Upon hearing of this, a frequent library patron (and a neighbor of Frank) donated this handmade wood teaching chess set in his name, complete with a brass plaque in Frank's honor. This way Frank's efforts and memory will always be honored at "Fun Chess Club!" and in the minds and hearts of the library and its patrons. The donor wishes to remain anonymous.

Take Down the Door
By Lyons Bluesologist, David McIntyre
St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated in more countries then any other national festival. Modern celebrations have been greatly influenced by those of the Irish diaspora, particularly those that developed in North America. The expression “take down the door” hearkens the old Irish tradition of taking the door off its hinges and throwing it down on a dirt cottage floor when it was time for a party.
On Wed., March 7, 2018, a Town of Lyons Candidates Forum was held in the meeting room at Oskar Blues Grill & Brew. The forum was sponsored by the Lyons Chamber of Commerce, the Redstone Review, the Lyons Recorder and the Lyons Library District. There are four separate video from the event.
Dear Parents of Junior Students at LHS:
As many of you may know, junior parents are traditionally responsible for putting on After Prom activities each year at LHS. The goal of After Prom is to create a fun, safe, and supervised environment after the prom when statistics show some teens are challenged with making positive choices for themselves.
Our committee has been working hard and are excited to announce that Wild Games in Longmont will host this event exclusively for Lyons High.
