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.

February is the lull month between the frenzy of applying for school and financial aid, and the anticipation of award letters and the decision. Take this opportunity to follow up on all you have accomplished, catch up on all that you haven’t, and prepare yourself for what is to come.

This season our community has been hit especially hard with the flu and other mysterious acute illnesses. While it is typical that wintertime is known as “flu season,” it is not typical to have changes in our climate to such an extent that winter feels more like a perpetual fall/spring combination here in Colorado.
