Town Seeks Public Feedback On Proposed Stormwater Utility Fees New fees would be assessed on all Estes Valley property owners to pay for flood mitigation projects The Town of Estes Park encourages Estes Valley property owners to learn about a proposed Stormwater Management Program and provide feedback by July 17. The Town recently completed a Stormwater Master Plan that recommends $79 million in proposed projects to reduce flood risk and a possible fee-based utility to fund and implement the projects. The utility would exist within the Estes Valley Development Code boundary, including unincorporated portions of the Estes Valley. Meetings in June included an overview presentation and breakout sessions to review conceptual maps and projects with property owners. Property owners are encouraged to review the updated information, including a video presentation, and provide feedback through the online survey by July 17 at www.estes.org/stormwater. Printed surveys are available at the Public Works Department in Room 100 of Town Hall, 170 MacGregor Ave. Town staff will also be available at the Estes Valley Farmer's Market in Bond Park June 14 and 21 to provide information and gather feedback. Public Works Director Greg Muhonen explained the importance of flood mitigation, "For every $1 spent on mitigation and resiliency projects, $4 to $8 can be saved on

future flood response and recovery. By taking proactive steps we can reduce these repetitive risks to our community." New fees are proposed for all owners of developed property within the Estes Valley Development Code boundary. The current cost model for the Estes Valley predicts monthly fees starting around $7 and averaging around $26 for all property types. The median proposed fee is about $14, and 90% of the proposed monthly fees are under $46. Residents of most other Larimer County and Front Range communities already pay monthly stormwater fees ranging from about $4 to $13 per month. Commercial property owners in these communities pay up to $160 per month. The basis for stormwater fees and charges is typically the amount of impervious area within a developed parcel. The projects are proposed to be built over a 30-year period or as funding and approvals allow. In addition to reducing flood risk for residents and businesses, the projects would ultimately help remove properties from the new, draft floodplain boundaries presented recently by the Colorado Water Conservation Board. For more information please visit www.estes.org/stormwater or contact Town Engineering Manager David Hook at dhook@estes.org or 970-577-3586.

Hazardous Fuels Reduction Work Continues In RMNP Minor Delays Possible On Bear Lake Road The reduction of hazardous fuels is a significant preventative management tool used in preparation for managing wildfire near structures and communities. As seen with the Fern Lake Fire, previous reduction of hazardous fuels aided firefighters in stopping the fire within the park when it made its more than three mile run on the morning of December 1, 2012. Ultimately, these projects are done to protect life and property and enhance the safety of firefighters and their ability to manage fire within the park. Fire Management staff at Rocky Mountain National Park completed pile burns on 250 acres this past winter and completed over 125 acres of cutting and hauling along Bear Lake Road so far this spring. Upcoming projects for this year include treatment on 124 acres in the Mill Creek and Glacier Creek areas on both sides of Bear Lake Road, 50 acres along Bear Lake Road above the Sprague Lake Junction and road side fuel reduction between Deer Ridge Junction and Fall River Entrance later this fall. The upcoming projects will include some traffic control and park visitors may experience up to ten minute

delays while work is taking place. Work will include removing dead trees, the lower limbs of remaining trees, ladder fuels, dead and down logs, and the removal of selected trees to increase canopy spacing. Resulting woody materials will be piled on site and burned in the following winters or may be used during upcoming years for firewood permits, depending on location. These projects are not designed as a stand-alone defense against wildfires, nor are they guaranteed to hold wildfire in the worst conditions. Please do your part and complete wildfire mitigation on your property. For more information on Firewise standards visit www.firewise.org.

Tell people you’re from Estes Park and almost without exception, they reply with a heavenly sigh, “Oh! We looooove Estes Park! ” (They are all guests who visit in the summer, I observe. I have yet to hear a single soul say, “Winter in Estes? Oh, I looooove the wind! ”) The appeal of Estes Park is in its surrounding mountains. It’s their mass, their immensity, their grandeur we cherish; the “tall, silent men, standing with folded arms, lonesome and lofty in their manner, stars breaking on their breasts, full of history like great books …” (these are descriptors found in one of my all-time favorite poems, “The Old Mountains” by Edwin Curran.) The mountains are a reminder of how insignificant we are on this minute planet; just one in a universe of countless universes out there. We love the mountains because of their multiple dimensions surrounding us, their depth, their might, the awe they invoke. The mountains stir our souls, deep within. I’m right there with you on that one. But I grew up on the plains, and counter to what some people say about how they yawn their way across Nebraska and Kansas, I see a remarkable beauty in the rolling prairie of America’s heartland that rivals the mountains of the west.

(There were people in the audience, called dowsers, who claimed to have “the gift” of doodle bugging. It’s not scientific, but it’s real—they say.) We rode over the Great Plains in a covered wagon and watched as a herd of cattle was driven across the hills, spreading black like spilled ink on a blank page of green, a headstrong stray breaking free but soon corralled back in by a rancher on his horse. My inner Laura Ingalls Wilder was awakened as I looked out over the vast, uncultivated prairie, my hair pushed back from my face by the warm, unassuming breeze. In every direction we could see to the ends of the earth— wide-open vistas of pristine grassland performing sun salutations: reaching, swaying, dancing, praying. It was breathtaking, and stirred my soul, deep within, just as the mountains do. It is hot in the summer on the prairie. I loved wearing a tank top and bare feet, with no need I spent this past weekend in the Kansas Flint to carry a sweater for when the sun went down.

Crossroads Ministry Of Estes Park Welcomes New Executive Director By: Tracey McGinnis Brian Schaffer has served as the Executive Director since May 14th, 2018. Prior to joining Crossroads, he served in Alaska with Catholic Social Services proBrian Schaffer viding system support and collaborative leadership for agencies working with homeless families in the HUD coordinated entry system and rapid rehousing program. He was also an Outreach Pastor at the largest church in the state and led New Hope on the Last Frontier as their Executive Director where he launched a recovery services program, job training center, life coaching, and peer mentoring to augment the already existing food and clothing distribution. He was active on advisory boards for the Salvation Army and Anchorage Cops for Community, and served as a volunteer prison chaplain. The last two years in Alaska he helped establish Acts 247 Recovery Church to reach people in recovery from addiction, homelessness, and incarceration. In each of these assignments he worked collaboratively with churches, government agencies, businesses, and volunteers to bring hope and healing to people in their time of need. Before this he served in pastoral assignments with the Church of the Nazarene in Texas. While living in Houston he founded and served as the Executive Director of Urban Link, a Christian community development organization. Preceding his time in Texas and Alaska, he served as a missionary in Central America and the Caribbean, worked at a small oil company in Kansas and Oklahoma as well as taught in both public and private schools. Brian firmly believes that his life's mission is centered in mobilizing communities to love their neighbors through acts of compassion and words of life. This calling has been translated into a career that is uniquely suited him as a spiritual, cultural, and civic leader. He received a bachelor's degree in education from MidAmerica Nazarene University and a master's degree in ministerial leadership from Indiana Wesleyan University. Growing up in the flatlands of Wichita, Kansas he always dreamed of living a life filled with adventure and once graduating from MNU where he met his wife, Deborah, they began their missionary journey

together. And now with 29 years under their belt they have three grown sons and one daughter-in-law who are fulfilling their own life’s calling in Texas and Tennessee. When asked about his first impressions of his new assignment he had the following to say: “I’m amazed at all the ways that Crossroads has been involved in the lives of people in need. From tragic events such as the floods and fires to providing occasional assistance with rent, utilities, medical costs, repairs, fuel, or whatever else that has brought their life to a screeching halt. Restoring hope in a loving manner has been a trademark of this exceptional organization and I am grateful to the board of directors for the opportunity to be their Executive Director. I feel divinely called and equipped by God to serve among neighbors in need, so I believe this conviction will guide me well in leading Crossroads. I look forward to working with the talented staff and getting to know the entire network of donors, volunteers, and partners. As I have begun to sort through historical documents in my office, I was most excited to read about the history of Crossroads Ministry and how everything has come together to help neighbors in need through a network of churches and community partners. I am very impressed with the self-sufficiency programs, because I am a firm believer in offering relief for immediate needs as we put together a plan to help a person rehabilitate areas in their life that have held them back from a self-reliant lifestyle.” Brian has come in during the Neighbors in Need Challenge, so I asked him to make a few comments. “I am so encouraged to see the community participation in this campaign. It speaks highly of how much people believe in what Crossroads is doing. This challenge is such a great example of how the giving potential can be maximized through one generous donor who has invested $50,000 as matching dollars that ultimately blesses us with a double portion to fulfill our mission. The great news that I have for you today is that our financial supporters have met the Challenge by giving not only $50,000, but $59,234, so this brings the grand total to $109,234! Thank you!” In closing he shared some of his philosophy for community development and how you can get involved. “Making connections that change lives for good is what it’s all about for me. Getting close enough to a person to make the connection is the first step. I believe in the strength that relationships bring to an organization, so I look forward to working with you as we connect resourses to meet the needs through volunteers that want to serve. I’d love the opportunity to visit with you about your role in all of this. Invite me to a meeting or come meet with me individually. brian.crossroadsep@gmail.com” Let’s welcome Brian Schaffer and his wife, Deborah, to Estes Park!

Dances Of Universal Peace June 16

You are invited to join us at Estes Park Yoga on this Saturday, June 16th from 4:00-6:00 p.m. for the Dances of Universal Peace. Almost 50 years ago, on June 24, 1968, Samuel Lewis, influenced by the modern dance pioneer, Ruth St. Dennis, taught some of his students the first Dances of Universal Peace, which have since spread across the continent and, due to the international network, has spread to 28 other countries. These dances are sometimes done in nature, diverse places of worship, schools, and colleges. Debra will be drumming, and Jyoti and Yusuf will be leading and playing guitar. One dance included this week from the yoga tradition will be the ancient (between 1800 and 1500 BCE) Gayatri Mantra, as a poem to the divine light. The translation by Doulas Brooks, PhD, professor of religion is as follows:

th

“The eternal, earth, air, heaven, That glory, that resplendence of the sun, May we contemplate the brilliance of that light May the sun inspire our minds.” And as he says “It doesn't get more ancient, more sacred than this. It's an ecstatic poetic moment.” “Come, come, whoever you are.” The dances are offered by donation; No one is denied joining in these interfaith practices with the repetition of sacred phrases and heartfelt movements. Please bring water, as some of the dances are exuberant. Please refrain from wearing fragrances. The Dances are held every third Saturday of the month at Estes Park Yoga Park Place Mall, 145 East Elkhorn. The next dance will be held July 21st with guest leaders. Call Linda Bensey at 970-2147719 for more information.

DO YOU HAVE A ‘POINT MAN’ AT YOUR HOUSE? Several years ago Steve Farrar wrote a book entitled: ‘Point Man’. He began by depicting a platoon leader leading his men through enemy territory. He stressed how vital his work was as he led his men safely, detecting any ‘booby-traps’ and ‘trip-wires’ set to maim and kill his troops. After powerfully depicting this very responsible leader and the importance of his mission, he proceeded to talk about another ‘mission’ that badly needs a ‘point man’ to direct his ‘troops’ through an even more dangerous ‘jungle’. He said, “Now look behind you at those following, the faces of your wife and children, looking to you to guide them through the treacherous world we live in.â€? His message was so relevant for the times we live in. Our families are in great jeopardy in our society today, and they need the very best ‘point man’ they can rely upon for leadership during these times. And yet, how rare are such men. I hope you have one at your house and that he will be honored this coming Sunday for his great leadership and guidance. ‘Happy Father’s Day’ to all such. How blessed are their families! This is especially crucial in a time when many are scratching their heads trying to solve the ‘case of the vanishing father’. Many families do not enjoy the presence of such a person. One ‘wild-oats-sowing’ young man boasted that he had ‘fathered’ children by eight different women, but that he was not going to ‘stay around’ and let those children and women ‘ruin his life’. We certainly would condemn such a spirit, but there are many situations where the father is ‘present’‌but not really. In another powerful book, ‘No Longer Strangers’, a father talked about families‌including his own‌where parents hardly knew their children, being too preoccupied with work and other endeavors. I was touched years ago when I first heard Reba McEntire’s song in which she grieved ‘The greatest man I never knew’. You will be moved, as I was, by the story of one who missed a father’s relationship, until it was too late. Here are her words: “The greatest man I never knew lived just down the hall, and every day we said hello but never touched at all. He was in his paper, I was in my room. How was I to know he thought I hung the moon. The greatest man I never knew came home late every night, he never had much to say. Too much was on his mind. I never knew him, and now it seems so sad. Everything he gave to us took all he had. The days turned into years, and the mem’ries to black and white. He grew cold like an old winter wind blowing across my life. The greatest words I never heard I guess I’ll never hear. The man I thought could never die has been dead almost a year. Oh, he was good at bus’ness, but there was bus’ness left to do. He never said he loved me. Guess he thought I knew.â€? Fathers, does any of that sound like you? Children, does any of that sound like a failed relationship you’ve experienced? It may be too late for Reba’s situation to change, but not yours. Do it! Here are some suggestions for good ‘point men’. They will be men who ‘lean’. I believe that fathers can benefit by ‘leaning’ on God and His Word for guidance. But I also believe that fathers need to ‘lean’ on other wise and quality fathers for advice to live as a better ‘point man’ for their families. Secondly, I think devoted fathers will ‘lead’ those with whom God has blessed them. It’s a jungle out there! And our ‘platoons’ need a quality ‘point man’ to lead us safely through to a good and meaningful life ahead. (Bob)

Fitzpatrick Family Going On A Worldwide Adventure

   

   

The Fitzpatrick family has lived in Estes Park since 2001. From Kim Fitzpatrick, “We love being part of this community. We have five children that we have homeschooled since they were little. My husband, Dan, has his own company (Eparklabs.com) and works as a software developer.� This June, the family will be embarking on a great adventure for the next 16 months which we think our readers might be interested in following. Dan and Kim’s oldest son, Michael (20), will soon be going on a mission for their church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. However, the rest of the Fitzpatrick family (Kim, Dan, Lauren (17), Nathan (16), Will (13), and Danny (11), along with Lauren’s best friend Megan (17) will be taking their homeschool international, traveling to several countries. They plan to stay in each country for one to two months, living in a house and immersing themselves in the local culture. They also hope to be able to serve people where ever they can.

On June 12, the Fitzpatrick family left Estes Park to travel to Guatemala and stay in the city of Santa Cruz La Laguna near Lake Atitlan. Here they will be helping with a charitable organization called Cultiva International (Cultivainternational.org) which helps local Mayan families that are beset by poverty and malnutrition to build and maintain their own family garden boxes, helping each family become more self-sustaining and have access to nutritious food. The family has set up a GoFundMe campaign to help them with their works in Guatemala at gofundme.com/fitzpatrickfamilyadventure After Guatemala, they will be in Peru, followed by New Zealand, Cambodia, Thailand, Bulgaria, Croatia, either Kenya or Malawi, and finally Canada. They will return home in October 2019. We wish the family a safe and wonderful adventure. Make sure to watch the EP News for updates from the Fitzpatrick family as they travel around the world!

Miner Bill And The Blue Mist: Remembering An Estes Park Legend

Three-toed claws etched on trees. A reclusive mountain miner. And a strange blue haze breaking through the clouds. These are few of the elements of what is perhaps this valley’s most famous fireside legend. Storyteller Kurtis Kelly will perform a special re-telling of “The Legend of the Blue Mist� in a campfire setting on Thursday, June 21 at 7:30 p.m. The onehour program will take place at the Moraine Park Discovery Center Amphitheater, and the event is sponsored by Rocky Mountain Conservancy. Registration is $15 per person, and advance registration may be done at www.rmconservancy.org. Since the story was first told in the 1940s, thousands of Estes Park area visitors have been intrigued and entertained by “The Blue Mist� at campfire gatherings, often at places like the Fall River Lodge, Steads Ranch, and at the livery of the YMCA of the Rockies. Local cowboy-wrangler Bill Robinson first gave listeners goosebumps telling this fireside legend about the reclusive character of William “Miner Bill� Currence (ca. 1868-1951), a real-life figure from the area’s history. While Robinson created “The Blue Mist� as a fictional tale, it is framed with references to local history as well as allusions to the natural yet strangely sudden weather phenomena that occur near mountain valleys and ridges.

As part of the storytelling, Kelly will include a sample recording of songs performed by the late Bill Robinson. Kurtis Kelly is a local performer well-known for his many re-enactments of such local legends as Enos Mills and F. O. Stanley. The public is encouraged to attend this spe-

cial program. A campfire with marshmallows will be available after the presentation. Attendees should plan to bring jackets or rain gear to prepare for any weather changes during the outdoor event.

Sweet, Loving Pets Need New, Forever Homes

Do you have room in your home and your heart for a new pet? Faith is a gray and white tabby cat who is about three years old. She is very sweet and enjoys being petted and talked to. Carter is a cute, five year old black and white, short haired kitty. He is very loving and friendly. Jimmy is a husky shepherd mix whose owner was a visitor to EP that left him here! Jimmy is about three years old and walks nicely on a leash. He has a high prey drive though so he should not go to a home with small dogs or cats. He is housetrained and very friendly with people. He is calm boy and will make an awesome companion. Jack is a six month old blue heeler. He is a little under socialized but we have been working hard with him. He has had a lot of new experiences and is gaining confidence every day. He is learning to play with other dogs and meet strangers. Jack will need a new family that will take him on adventures to encourage him to be the best boy he can be. He is house trained, active and super cute. The above animals are currently living at Dr. C's Animal Hospital of the Rockies, 453 Pine River Ln. Call (970) 586-

4703 to find out more about them or stop down to meet any of these great pets. At the Pet Lodge there is Kitty who is a beautiful dilute torte, about five years old. She has lived with dogs, cats and kids. She was surrendered because of allergies. To meet Kitty, contact the Pet Lodge at the Animal Medical Center on Manford Avenue by calling 586-9282. All pets are offered through the Pet Association of Estes Park, a non-profit organization that works to find homes for stray and abandoned pets, control dog and cat populations by funding sterilization programs, educate members of the community, especially young people, about the humane treatment of animals and the responsibilities of pet ownership; and promote community involvement in the use of pets as therapeutic agents (e.g., in nursing homes). The Estes Park Pet Association is your local humane society. You can make a tax-deductible donation to the Pet Association by sending your check to P.O. Box 4342, Estes Park, CO 80517.

Mary Crone-Featured Artisan For June 26 Monday Art Market

This week's featured artisan is Mary Crone. Mary, a local Glen Haven artist, creates beautiful, unique, one of a kind clay sculptures. Creating ceramic sculpture is a passion for Mary Crone. Her work reflects the joy and spirit of her creative processes. Mary is interested in ceramics with personality, beauty, and attitude. The marks of the process, the slight distortion from a gentle hand, or the fingerprints are all a part of the language with which exclaim, "I was not machinemade, I was not mass-produced, I was made by fingers and hands, in a small

studio, by an artist dreaming, creating, and listening to music." In a time of mass-production, consumer culture and waste, the handmade creations brings us back to the intimacy of human nature. One of Mary's most cherished childhood memories is digging up clay from the shores of Lake Huron,

Soggy Noodle Children’s Theatre To Present Shakespeare Gone Astray!

The Soggy Noodle Children’s Theatre in gleeful conjunction with Estes Park Outreach is excited to announce their upcoming summer production: To Do or Not to Do, Shakespeare Gone Astray! (in 3D). Performances will take place Friday, June 15th and Saturday, June 16th at 7:00 p.m. at the Estes Park High School Auditorium. Tickets are $5.00. This is an original and very adolescent-

minded Shakespearean comedy written by Noodle director, Katherine Dumont. This troupe of mostly 12-14 year olds will enlighten and frighten the audience as they creatively interpret and perform eight of Shakespeare's greatest plays “at one fell swoop!” This production is perfect for both Shakespeare fanatics and Shakespeare-phobics. This collage play of abridged and deranged Shakespearean classics has something for everyone: romance, dueling, conspiracy, murder, fairies, marshmallows, and even a purple portapotty time machine. The collection includes a few of the bard’s more obscure plays (Timon of Athens and Coriolanus) as well as his most popular (Macbeth, Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and King Lear). Queen Elizabeth the First makes an appearance, as do Captain Undergarments and Darth Vader. Three narrators will guide the actors through their

Community Library’s “Quiet Room”

Estes Park Senior Citizens Center Menu ——— Week of June 11 through June 15 ——— During the years 2016 -2018 both Connie Phipps and Pat Pickering served as presidential leaders of the Estes Park Woman's Club. Club members were challenged by them to raise funds to support the Estes Valley Library's plans to have a “Quiet Room” with a fireplace. A commitment was reached before the end of Connie's term. By the beginning of 2018, after members had provided $7,000 for the project, our community now has been enjoying the library's lovely addition that offers all users a

“quiet time” in front of a welcoming fireplace. Since 2017 members of the Woman's Club are proud to have celebrated 100 years of services to the community of Estes Park through member's support, not only to our Estes Valley Library, but also to our town, our schools, and to Rocky Mountain National Park. The club's monthly luncheon with program will resume in September. Come, join us and become another proud member.

Longmont Concert Band members have ranged in age from 17 to 82. Since its formation in 2003, the band has

A very popular annual event has been the Christmas concert held at the www.longmontconcertband.org/index.h tml The shows are sponsored by the CAC and Coldwell Banker Estes Village Properties.

A Land Of Legends: Traversing The Southern Silk Road “Our Wonderful World” continues its 12th season of armchair travel-adventures this Monday, June 18 with “Traversing the Southern Silk Road,” a presentation by world-traveler and Estes

Park resident Jean Muenchrath. Sponsored by the Estes Valley Library, the free presentation takes place at 7 p.m. at this year’s new location: the American Legion Post 119 at 850 N. St. Vrain Avenue. Through stories and photos, Muenchrath will recount her trip from Pakistan to Western China along the world’s highest continuously-paved road, the Karakoram Highway. The journey passes along the Southern Silk Road through the fabled Hunza Valley, the

place which inspired James Hilton’s novel “Shangri-La,” then across the Karakoram and Pamir Mountains. The trip also visits markets where Marco Polo once traded, as well as the Taklamakan Desert and the Tien Shan Range known as the Heavenly Mountains. Jean Muenchrath has been a National Parks ranger for over thirty years. She has led tours in Nepal and Thailand and has worked in Bhutan for the World Wildlife Fund. Her love for travel and adventure has taken her throughout North and South America and Asia. For more information about this summer’s full Our Wonderful World schedule, visit estesvalleylibrary.org. A full roster of the series is also available in print and online inside the library’s programs and services guide, “Gatherings.”

Patriots For Peace June Meeting Notice Did you know that local veterans from the WWII, Vietnam, and Korean War eras were some of the founders of the Estes Park Patriots for Peace in 2003? We are still passionately concerned with veterans’ issues. You are invited to join us for our next meeting on Wednesday, 20 June, at 5:30 p.m. in the Wasson Room of the Estes Valley Public Library. Our program is the first in a series of two concerning support for military veterans. This month we will view and discuss a new documentary film by health care professionals Dr. Edward Tick and Deborah Grassman, Go in Peace!, about end-of-life care for veterans. This is a moving film, of interest to all family, friends, and caregivers dealing with veterans in any set-

ting, private or institutional. We think this is especially appropriate for our community, which is blessed with so many veterans and their families. Our following meeting, at 5:30 p.m. in the Hondius Room at the library on 18 July, will feature a presentation by Navy veteran Kendra Ryan. We will further our discussion of support for veterans.

Allenspark Old Gallery Offers Free Memoir Writing Class Have you dreamed of writing a memoir? And why not? You’ve had a fascinating life! Now there’s an easy way to get started, thanks to The Old Gallery in Allenspark, a non profit center for community and the arts. The free classes take place on Tuesday, June 12, 19, and 26 from 1-2:30 p.m. “All are welcome to join this friendly, nurturing class, where you’ll receive advice on how to construct your memoir, what details to focus on, how to anchor historical data and how to make it speak to another generation,” said instructor Elisabeth Sherwin. Participants will be asked to write short anecdotes outside

the class and then share your writing with the class. Sherwin has a Master’s in Journalism and is a former journalist who worked as a reporter and copy editor in California for more than 30 years. She taught writing at the University of California Extension Center and has a website dedicated to her columns on books and writers at www.sherwinontheweb.com.

We encourage everyone to purchase tickets early as we expect a sellIt’s not every day you can hear world class blues in a small mountain town. But you’ll be able to hear a 2018 semi-finalist in the International Blues Challenge, the largest blues competition in the world, in Allenspark on Saturday, June 30 at The Old Gallery. It’s the 9th Annual Hogabluesa BBQ, Blues and Brews starring Eef and The Blues Express. Front woman Eef is originally from Holland and plays smoky-hot licks from a bright red Gibson. “Unfortunately, I couldn’t find people to play the blues with in the Netherlands, ” she said. Then she came to Colorado on a corporate assignment with Hewlett Packard, transferred here and began playing music. “I quit my job in 2003 and have been playing ever since.” Her band plays groovy blues, soul, Motown, New Orleans-style songs and the dance floor is usually filled to capacity. They competed in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis in 2015, and again in 2017 when they made the semi-finals. “We’re so happy with how we did in the competition, ” she said. The band consists of Eef on guitar and vocals, Ken Johnston on saxophone, Scott Hackler on keyboard/vocals, Mike Wysocki on bass/vocals and Tim Molinaro on drums. They’ve opened for numerous national acts including Coco Montoya, Samantha Fish, Bernard Allison and Tinsley Ellis. In 2015 and in 2018 they were nominated by the local newspaper 'Westword' for 'Best Blues Band'. In 2013 Eef was awarded 'Songwriter of the Year' at the CBS Members Choice Awards. And they’ve got four albums under their belts. Tickets are $35, with BBQ served from 6-7 and the music starting at 7:30. This year’s sponsors include the Colorado Blues Society, Smokin’ Dave’s BBQ, Oskar Blues Brewery and Rambo’s Liquor.

Hogabluesa was originated by local resident Marc Kreiwaldt and took place outdoors for the first seven years. “The event is now indoors—out of respect for our neighbors—but it’s just as much fun,” said Weaver. Attendees must be 16 and older only, please. Other music events at The Old Gallery include Songwriters in the Round, featuring four different singer songwriters who share their music and the stories behind their songs, local favorite Rebecca Folsom, Rupert Wates, a Piano and Flute Concert by Barry and Mary Hannigan, GLOW World Music Trio with Beth Gadbaw, the famed Takács String Quartet and a Holiday Concert and Singalong with Biff Gore (Season 6 of The Voice).

What a great Wool Market and Fiber Affair weekend! Last weekend the town filled with fiber lovers. They came from far and near to the Wool Market to learn new ways to knit, weave, felt and spin their fibers. There were 275 students who attended classes. They bought more fiber at the vender booths to create their fiber pieces. They touched the llamas and carded the wool and ooohed and ahhed over luxury fibers like cashmere and angora. Still more came: they rode the trolley to see the Fiber Affair exhibits at the Art Center of Estes Park, the Weaver’s Attic and Weaver’s Closet. They viewed the fiber work of local artists at the library, hospital, US bank, and Snowy Peaks Winery. They shopped with the Trail Ridge Quilters at the American Legion who raised money for the hospital. The community welcomed all the fiber lovers with trees “yarn bombed� by fiber scarves on Elkhorn Ave., in the Courtyard Shops and at the Art Center. Every scarf was hand knit by our local knitters and fiber lovers. This brought many smiles and laughter. While the hugs for the trees will come down on June 13, the Fiber Affair exhibits can still be seen throughout the town until June 29. The FACE of Fiber in the Rockies 2018 will be at the Art Center of Estes Park until July 14th along

Village Band-A Blessing To Many

Last Thursday, June 7th, The Village Band performed at the Good Samaritan Society – Estes Park Village. Over the many years that this concert has been held at Good Sams this was, by far, the best weather we have ever had. The Good Sam residents and staff would like to thank Chuck Varilek and the members of the Village Band for bringing the show to us. It can be difficult for some of the residents to get out to programs around town. Having programs and performances brought to the GSS-Estes Park Village is really a blessing to so many.
