Local Events Planned to Commemorate 20th Anniversary of 9/11 Attacks

If you have ever been to Broomfield Community Park near the library, you may have noticed a memorial tucked away on the eastern edge of the park. The bronze statues stand out against red stone, protected by trees on one side and the American flag flying overhead, as names and artistic scenes tell the story of September 11, 2001.

Our Parade My favorite Broomfield Days memories all have to do with the parade.

Watching the parade as a child and later with my kids when they were little. Marching in the parade as a Broomfield High School cheerleader and then as a Birch Elementary school parent. And finally dancing in the parade when I took up a new hobby after competing in Dancing with the Broomfield Stars. But my very best memories about the Broomfield Days Parade all have to do with Mr. Paul Derda. Paul came to Broomfield as Director of Parks and Recreation in 1978 and has been the “voice” and the true “heart” of Broomfield ever since. Growing up here, I really can’t recall a community-wide event in which he wasn’t involved. On top of his humor and charisma, no one I have ever met has Paul’s gift of connection. He seems to know everyone and if you don’t know him, within 30 seconds of talking with him, you will feel like you do. Paul is the master of ceremonies for the Broomfield Days parade. He announces each entry and greets each group with personal anecdotes and messages in a perfectly Paul way. Of all of the tiny touches that make Broomfield Days the quintessential hometown celebration, nothing eclipses Paul’s hosting and commentary. Paul retired from his professional career with the City several years ago, but has continued to serve as emcee for the parade, the 4th of July and the Christmas tree lighting each year. But this year he is retiring, and this will be his last Broomfield Days on the grandstand. I can hardly write the words. But I met with Paul and talked about it and he is excited for this year’s Broomfield Days. It will be extremely special. I asked him to share his favorite Broomfield Days memory. He paused a moment, and then recalled Broomfield Days 2001, just days after 9-11. He told me how City Council met the night of the attacks to decide if Broomfield Days would go on or not, the following weekend. He said, after much debate, it was decided that the event should go on - that the community needed it. And Paul recalled standing on the stage near the firehouse, under a veil of flags lining Midway Blvd., and watching overwhelmed as every available police officer and firefighter from Broomfield and the surrounding area marched down the street, leading the parade. “It was emotional,” he said. “The crowd was emotional. But we held Broomfield Days, and people got out of their houses, away from their televisions, and came together as a community. Our community festival lifted our community out of the sadness and brought people together. And that’s what it’s all about,” Paul reminisced. Paul has emceed the parade for 40 years. He only missed one. That was last year when it was cancelled due to the pandemic. 40 years of doing anything deserves maximum gratitude and a standing ovation. And that’s not enough. I can’t come up with the right words here, but Broomfield Days will never be the same for me. This pair of shoes can’t be filled. So, I’ll just say thank you. Thank you, Paul, from all of us. And Broomfield loves you. See you at Broomfield Days, and thanks for reading,

EVENTS SEPTEMBER 11 Dog Daze at The Bay Dog Daze is back at The Bay Aquatic Park. A day just for the dogs in your life, the event signifies the end of the summer season. For one day, The Bay will be open just for dogs to swim in the pools and play on the splash pad. This is a great event for social dogs and owners! Owners can bring toys, like balls or frisbees, to throw in the pool for their dog, but owners are not allowed to enter the pools with their dogs. This year, to help control the flow of people and dogs, there are four time slots to pre-register for the event between 9:00 a.m. and 3:45 p.m. Owners can pre-register their dogs on to guarantee entry for their preferred time slot. Walk ups are welcome the day of the event, but space is not guaranteed. The entry fee for the event is $5 for residents and $7 for non residents.

Have you ever been to the Thunder Bay wave pool at Waterworld? I had the privilege of sitting by it one day, for six hours, while my kids and their friends ran around the park. I had a nice shady spot with my portable fan and felt very content. I was having so much fun watching all the excitement every ten minutes when the waves started up. The whole crowd would scream at the top of their lungs and ride the waves for a minute and then settle back down, patiently waiting for the next round. It became background noise after a while, as I settled into my book. But it was during my reading break, two hours in, that I really sat and watched the crowd in this wave pool. This was a day in all of their lives where they were so happy. I have no idea what any of their life situations were, but for the hours they rode the waves, they were full of anticipation, and then an adrenaline high as they bounced around, and then back to calm. This goes on all day, every day, during the summer months. I started to think about riding the waves of life. There are the calm periods where everything seems fine. And then the situations where you feel a lot of anticipation and excitement. And finally the epic high of riding the huge wave you’ve been waiting for. It can also go the other way. Where life feels calm and fine. And then there is the anxiety of dealing with something that we wish


Our Broomfield™ Magazine | September 2021

would go away, and then sometimes having to deal with a bigger issue that makes our world come crashing down. Eventually, there is the calm again, as we learn to live life in our new normal. Both are inevitable. We hang onto the memories and feelings of the positive emotions and try to forget the uncomfortable times of our lives. This is natural. Remember the good, forget the bad. But hopefully along the way we gain wisdom and clarity that we can rustle over to the positive side of our life experiences. There is always a silver lining, even if it is very small or hard to find. For me, September feels like the calm settling in after the big anticipation of summer and riding out all of the summer fun. I try not to think too far ahead to anticipate the holidays and riding that next big wave. I want to enjoy the down time. I want to eat dinner together again and hike in the cooler weather of fall. Recharge myself. Ride out this calm as long as possible. I hope you can find your calm this month and use its restorative energy to help keep your world positive and full of love.

What a delightful find! White table cloths, fresh food, beautiful service. This is not a place to hurry for a quick lunch but a place to savory every bite and have a good visit. Service is slow and meticulous, very European. Shrimp pasta with a delicate sauce that allowed the shrimp to shine through. The special caprese salad was unique and I am still trying to replicate the dressing.

D O I N G S O M E L A N D S C A P IN G THIS SUMMER? One of the leading causes of water pollution is landscaping material (rocks, compost, dirt, etc.) that is deposited in the curb and gutter. This kind of material can get washed away in stormwater runoff. Storm sewers discharge directly into creeks, streams and ponds untreated. It is illegal and a violation of the Broomfield Municipal Code to dispose of or allow materials other than stormwater to discharge into the storm sewer system.

Keep Broomfield’s Stormwater clean!

Have your landscape material delivered in your driveway or find a staging area on your property when conducting landscaping projects.

Thank you for doing your part! For more information, contact the Stormwater Management Program at 303.464.5648 or visit

Fully understanding your oral health and treatment options will help lead you to confident and comfortable dental decisions. Our mouths and teeth play a huge role in our everyday life, from talking to eating, and sharing our joy with a big smile. When you are happy with the way your mouth looks and feels, your life is that much better. Ginny Mata, the office manager at Mata Dental and wife of Dr. Lyndon Mata, said, “When you need dental work done we really try to show you what needs to be done and why so you can make the best decision for yourself without pressure, but with full understanding.” Dr. Mata has been practicing general dentistry in Colorado since 1995, after receiving his education from the University of Minnesota. Dr. Mata and his hygienist are the only people who will work on your teeth, so you know you will not become just a number in a system. By individually focusing on every patient who walks in the building, his team builds a relationship of trust and respect which can reduce stress while you are in the chair. You can also depend on them for honest opinions and treatment recommendations. With these major concerns addressed, Mata Dental is sure to ease any dental visit anxieties. Dr. Mata is a Pinhole Surgical Technique Certified Clinician, so he is more than qualified to help you with recessive gum rejuvenation. According to Dr. Mata, the Pinhole Procedure is less invasive and less painful than traditional gum-graft treatment. Small punctures are made in the gums to lift them back into

place and the pinholes are then filled with collagen to stimulate rejuvenation. This method is an ideal option for reducing recovery time and overall pain. Another advanced method Dr. Mata uses to reduce discomfort and recovery time is laser periodontal procedures. Ginny described the crown lengthening procedure as “reaching in between the gum and the tooth down to the bone with a laser instead of cutting the gum open with a scalpel.” Using the laser instead of creating an open wound reduces recovery time for many different procedures from several days to just one. Regularly caring for your oral health prevents and manages sensitivity or pain, but caring for the appearance of your teeth is equally important. Mata Dental offers Invisalign and Clear Correct for teenage and adult patients looking to straighten out their smiles. Visiting a dental professional for a consultation is quick and easy, and also prevents accidental damage to your teeth, gums, and jaw. Ginny warns against trying at-home smile-adjusting clear trays because they don’t offer professional supervision. A personalized Invisalign or Clear Correct plan from Mata Dental can help you achieve a straight smile in less than 18 months without damaging your teeth. Whether you are looking for a new dentist or are needing a second opinion on some recommended dental care, the team at Mata Dental can provide you with friendly and informative service. Ginny reminds patients to not wait on dental care because “it is not going to go away and the longer you wait the longer it takes a toll on your health.”

“Afterlife” Explores Contemporary Themes of Community and Family Transitions City-wide Book Club, One Book One Broomfield, Concludes in October By Allison Eichner


ulia Alverez’s “Afterlife” is the One Book One Broomfield pick for 2021. Acting as a city-wide book club, One Book One Broomfield, hosted by the Broomfield Library, serves to bring the community together in conversation and thought. With themes of family and hope in the face of tragedy, Alverez’s novel poignantly comments on the climate of the United States and how we view moral ties within our human family. Antonia Vega, the story’s narrator and center, opens the book as a newly retired English professor in present day Vermont. Her husband recently died in a car accident also making Antonia a widow, dramatically shifting her life. She is soon also confronted with the disappearance of her sister, Izzy. One of four sisters, Antonia, and her sisters Tilly and Mona, work to untangle family dramas as they find out what happened to Izzy. Antonia is simultaneously included in the dilemma next door including her neighbor’s undocumented farmhand and his pregnant girlfriend. An immigrant herself, Antonia is torn between her responsibility to help her family and the couple next door. “Afterlife” considers many contemporary issues in our country today as well as the difficulties of individual growth and change when life transitions. Most prominently, the novel balances the responsibility we have to do right by family and the instinctual responsibility to do right by the people around us too. Antonia’s selfish, but ultimately human, narration reminds readers that creating change on an individual level is just as impactful as enacting change on a larger scale. Alverez has published many books across literary audiences and genres, but “Afterlife” is the first adult novel she has published in 15 years. Born in New York City in 1950, she lived in the Domican Republic for the first years of her life before returning to the United States with her parents to flee the dictatorship at the time. Much of Alverez’s work comments on her Dominican heritage and life as a Latin American woman in the United States. Her extensive work has been awarded many accolades including the National Medal of Arts from President Obama in 2013. The novel is available through the Broomfield Library in both digital and physical forms. One Book One Broomfield will conclude for 2021 with a virtual author talk on November 6. Julia Alverez will discuss the book as well as answer questions. The author talk is free for anyone to attend, and only requires registration through the B-Rex activity scheduler to receive a streaming link. The library is hosting two additional events for One Book One Broomfield to keep

the conversation around “Afterlife” going. On October 20 there will be a drop-in writing class about journaling through grief. Alverez’s novel discusses feelings of grief after tragedy, so a professional with training in writing therapy will lead a workshop on how journaling can help you work through feelings of grief. Lastly, on October 9, there will be a drop-in illustration workshop hosted by Museo de las Americas. Explore family tradition and different pictures of a family unit through illustration.

Broomfield Days 2021 TOGE T HE R AGA I N September 17-19 Broomfield Days is back! Broomfield’s annual community festival is best known for its parade and trade fair, but the two-day gathering features many more events. In the morning, before the parade, join the Mayor’s Cup Road Race. Runners can participate in the 5k or a 1-mile fun run through Broomfield’s trail system. At 10:00 a.m. the parade marches down Midway Boulevard toward Midway Park and the grandstand. The trade fair is set up on both sides of Midway in North and South Midway Parks. Featuring booths from a variety of Broomfield businesses, the trade fair has everything from arts and crafts tents to food trucks, and local business exhibits to the carnival. Senior Resources of Broomfield hosts two events during Broomfield Days: The Broomfield Days Golf Tournament and Car Show. The golf tournament, hosted at Eagle Trace Golf Course, takes place on Friday September 17, and the Car Show is located on the south side of Midway Blvd., all day on September 18.

Some Broomfield Days History According to newspaper reports at the time, the first Broomfield Days was held on July 4, 1957. The event, then called the Broomfield Boom, was designed to be a community fun fest with food, entertainment, contests, and more. Boom planners wanted to bring the then communities of Broomfield and Broomfield Heights together in a massive celebration and welcome surrounding neighbors to see the wonderful new town that was emerging. Billed as a great success reminiscent of a “good old fashioned barn raising,” the event became “annual” after its very first year. As I prepared for this issue, I came across the following column that I wrote back in September 1987, as a senior in high school. Enjoy.

There’s even events for our furry friends; Rocky Mountain Dock Dogs is returning this year with the two-day dock jumping competition on Saturday and Sunday. Broomfield Days does not fall short in the area of entertainment. With stages set up throughout the park, there will be music and dance performances, a clown contest, carnival games, a petting zoo, and more.

Broomfield Days Celebration Special to the Younger Set (Sept. 1987) By Tina Battista (Eichner)

The celebration of Broomfield Days not only has much meaning for those who remember its early beginnings, it is also a special time for the younger generation. Students at Broomfield High School have been preparing for over three weeks for this 30th anniversary of Broomfield Days. Each class is sponsoring a booth, as it is a traditional way to raise funds. The band, color guard, and cheerleaders have been practicing to march in the parade since summer. The parade is the highlight of the fall season for many of these students. Senior Sean Miller called Broomfield Days the “greatest weekend to bring the community together. Broomfield Days is better than a Bronco game.” Many students have special childhood memories of Broomfield Days. Senior Kari Kultala (Thurman) remembers running to catch the candy thrown in the parade. Seniors Jeff Dankey and Susie Wargin each won the clown contest as kids. Jeff was 10 and remembers that his prize was a bike. Susie remembers that her picture appeared on the front page of The Denver Post. “It’s great to see the unity among everyone in the city,” said Susie. She said she especially enjoys the street dance. In another 20 or 30 years, the teenagers of today will be the people looking back to the fall of 1987 and Broomfield Days. Now is the time for creating their memories and stockpiling their stories for their children and grandchildren, the generations of the 21st century. Kari may have best summed up the spirit that has kept Broomfield Days going: “It is the one time all year when everyone is together, like a reunion. I feel special about this year because I’m graduating, but I hope to come back yearly for Broomfield Days — for the memories.”

The Broomfield 100

Gets Trail Enthusiasts Outdoors By Bette Erickson

Back in 2015, Broomfield City and County planners came up with the brilliant Broomfield 100 challenge. The goal of the three-month Broomfield 100 event was to encourage outdoor exercise, expose participants to the city’s expansive and well-planned trails system, and generally get residents enthused about healthy activity.

Outside. Trails. Goals. And much needed endorphin boosts. Bring it on, right?

This year, like last year, the Broomfield 100 and its trails “passport” is virtual. With the kick-off of the Broomfield 100 coinciding with National Trails Day (the first Saturday in June), interested residents were encouraged to access the passport online and hike or bike the variety of routes offered – generally summing to 100 miles. Hence the name, Broomfield 100. There is still time to join the fun. The online access allows participants to contribute to a community guest book, photo scavenger hunt, and more. The summer-long outdoor community challenge is enjoyed by hundreds of residents each year, culminating on Broomfield Days, Saturday, September 18. What’s not virtual is that prizes for those who’ve completed the challenge will be given out at Broomfield Days at the City and County tent on the south side of Midway Park. Not surprising in the least, the City and County of Broomfield has been ranked once again as one of the top counties in the 2021 Healthiest Communities rankings from U.S. News & World Report and the Aetna Foundation.

How You Can Support SRB and Broomfield’s Meals on Wheels

By Bette Erickson

What takes an inexhaustible amount of time and effort by a core group of volunteers known as Senior Resources of Broomfield (SRB)? The two headline events that bookend the annual Broomfield Days celebration: The Friday SRB Broomfield Days Golf Tournament and the Saturday SRB Broomfield Days Car Show. The Car Show, now in its 18th year, according to SRB Executive Director Teryl Fabry, draws car enthusiasts from throughout the Denver metro area. The staging, beginning at 6:30 a.m., is on the grass in South Midway Park near Nativity of Our Lord Catholic Church. It’s free and open to the public, costing just $35 to enter your automobile, or $40 after Sept. 10. All makes and models of cars are welcome and the event wraps up with an awards ceremony at 3:00 p.m. Sponsorship opportunities include one Diamond VIP Package for $3,000, Platinum VIP packages for $1,000; Gold Sponsors for $500;

Silver Sponsors for $250, and Bronze Sponsors for $100. All sponsorships include public recognition and more. The Board members and volunteers with SRB work on a number of fundraising activities and programs to improve the lives of our aging community members. “SRB has and will continue to advocate and support our aging population in Broomfield,” explained SRB Board President Ben Vagher. “Having said that,” he adds, “We are experiencing tremendous growth in all our programs. These two fundraisers are critical for us to continue being in that supportive role.” All proceeds from both the Car Show and the Golf Tournament fund Broomfield’s Meals on Wheels program. SRB is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and is registered as a charity with the Colorado Secretary of State. All gifts are tax deductible.

The Friday, September 17 SRB Golf Tournament promises prizes, a 1:00 p.m. lunch, and more. Check-in begins at 7:00 a.m. at Eagle Trace Golf Club with an 8:00 a.m. shotgun modified scramble.

The Friday Golf Tournament, like the Car Show, offers a number of sponsorship opportunities. Singles and teams, along with all ages and abilities, are encouraged to participate. A foursome is $500 and individuals are $125. There will be prizes, a Rip-a-Card offering of 5 for $25, a 1:00 p.m. lunch and more, included with your registration. Check-in begins at 7:00 a.m. at Eagle Trace Golf Club with an 8:00 a.m. shotgun modified scramble. “I’d say the Golf Tournament is our biggest fundraiser of the year,” said Fabry. “It’s essential to us.” Proceeds from both events go toward SRB’s support of Broomfield’s Meals on Wheels program.

Be Prepared …

For Hometown Community Fun! By Sam Taylor, Broomfield Chamber of Commerce CEO

September has always been a special month for me. Labor Day starts the first weekend of the month off with a celebration of the workers who made this country strong. The second weekend of September always finds me in a kilt celebrating my heritage at the Highland Festival in Estes Park. Yes, I do have a full Scottish outfit right down to the sporran. However, the highlight of September comes on the third weekend of the month: Broomfield Days. Broomfield Days is one of those hometown celebrations that are almost too home townish. While there are activities on Friday like the golf tournament and a concert and on Sunday, almost all of the action is on Saturday. There is the 5k Mayor’s Race in the morning, and then comes the parade at 10:00 a.m. To make sure you are ready for the parade, stop into the Girl Scout Shelter for a pancake breakfast before hand cooked by the Lions Club. Over the years I have been in the parade in many different roles: Girl Scout father, elementary school parent, candidate, and supporter of candidates from both major parties. Every time it has been fun, except the one year that I was right behind some horses, if you know what I mean. The streets are thronged with people watching and enjoying the sights, and so many people and organizations want to be part of the parade that it always goes on way too long. The rest of the day is spent mingling, eating, drinking, shopping, and having fun. From the businesses letting everyone know what their company does, to the dogs jumping off the dock into a pool, there is something for

everyone. Kids have their faces painted, The Chamber is bringing in the local breweries with some of their latest brews, and local restaurants are there to make sure you are fed and watered. While you are experiencing everything, be sure to stop at the various booths and inquire about what services they offer. You will find banks, IT companies, nonprofits, insurance agents, hospitals, attorneys, chiropractors, and just about every other type of business that calls the Broomfield area their home. The City and County of Broomfield also has booths that you can visit. Health and Human Services will be there to let you know the latest on the Coronavirus, and metrics on the health of the community. City Council will have a booth so that you can meet your elected officials, and Parks and Open Space will of course have their stuffed coyote there to draw in the kids and talk about interacting with wildlife. If there is a Heart of Broomfield, it is truly Midway Park. During the year it is a gathering place for kids on the swings, it has a sensory garden, meeting place at the shelter, and even nine holes of frisbee golf. My wife and I were married in the park more than 30 years ago, and still live within walking distance to this day. And the park really comes alive on September 18 for Broomfield Days. If you are one of the 20,000-30,000 people that make it there this year don’t forget to show up early prepared for any weather, this is Colorado after all. While it is usually sunny and pleasant, there could be thunderstorms, hail, or 90+ degree heat. But no matter what the weather, we will all have a great time welcoming Broomfield Days back to Midway Park.

BowWow Broomfield and Dock Dogs Are Not to Be Missed!

Photo courtesy of the City and County of Broomfield

By Megan Mayes

Some of my favorite Broomfield Days memories are centered around the 40 foot long pool filled with dogs. If you have seen it before you probably know exactly what I am talking about. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, and that sounds crazy but also really fun, then get ready for the dog sport you’ve been waiting for: Rocky Mountain DockDogs (RMDD)! With all of the other fun activities available throughout the day, the captivating energy of the competition speaks for itself. The infectious fun on the dogs' faces as they leap through the air can only be matched by the pride and joy on their human’s face. And don’t forget about the big splashes, which kids love as much as any pool or splash pad (speaking from experience)! This competition is tons of fun for spectators, first-time competitors, and national champions. I have two sporty dogs of my own: Freddy is an Australian Shepherd and Chocolate Lab mix, and Billy is a miniature Australian Shepherd. Freddy loves his frisbee and Billy is a herding dog through and through.


Our Broomfield™ Magazine | September 2021

Now I think it’s time to see if I have a Dock Dog in my midst. I talked with Jerry Porter, the President of RMDD, to get more information about their Broomfield Days competition and how to get involved with the sport. DockDogs is one of the fastest growing canine sports in the world, and RMDD is proud to have been a part of it all since 2008. Their memberships consist mainly of teams from Colorado, Wyoming, and Nebraska who host regional competitions and travel nationally. Club members and volunteers also help raise money for Chase Away Canine

Registration begins at 8:00 a.m., and first-time jumpers are welcome to join the competition. The categories are Big Air, Speed Retrieve, and Extreme Vertical. The Broomfield Days competition is a great first opportunity for new teams to try the sport. Visit the RMDD website at for more information on what to bring and what to expect. When asked what advice he would give first-time jumpers, Jerry said, “Patience. And you have to remember it is all for fun.” If you end up experiencing “love at first jump,” then the RMDD website and e-newsletter are also good resources for training tips, practice facility information, and membership sign up. You can also visit them at Rocky Mountain DockDogs on Facebook. Jerry told me, “Any dog can be a DockDog… we say bring your dog out and if your dog likes it then we will make it happen.” You won’t have to venture far from the pool to check out the tenth annual BowWow Broomfield event, which will be hosting a variety of pet-related vendors, adoption vans, and small dogs races. This pet friendly area of Broomfield Days is sure to be fun and entertaining for you, your kids, and your furry friends!

First Filing –

Broomfield’s Premier Neighborhood By Bette Erickson

While it isn’t a story as old as time, it is a story as old as the mid-1950s. The creation of Broomfield Heights, that is.


rom 1900 to about 1955, only 100 or so people lived on farmland in and around Broomfield. And then, on January 5, 1955, Turnpike Land Company officials (builders of the Denver-Boulder turnpike) announced an intent to create a master-planned community with participation from several leading investors and bankers. The targeted area, known as First Filing, was south of Midway Blvd. with a single family home price starting at $12,000 and initially mentioned in the Boulder Daily Camera the following May. Broomfield Heights is defined as the area west of Main Street, east of Hwy. 287, north of 120th Avenue and south of 10th Avenue. In August of that same year, the site of what would become Nativity of our Lord Catholic Church was purchased by the Denver Archdiocese. Also in August of 1955 the first houses became available for sale showcasing more than a dozen or so model homes. With the exception of “avenues” and “boulevards,” the remainder of the streets were either named for minerals or flowers. By April 1956, some 75 families were enjoying calling Broomfield Heights home. Because the developers and residents wanted an attractive community, a Littleton nursery planted 400 trees. Each house was given one shade tree and one ornamental tree courtesy of the developers. By August of 1956 Broomfield Heights was home to 163 families and grew to more than 200 by November.

“Our neighborhood was so pretty,” recalls Theresa Sandstrom. “We rode our bikes all over. We felt safe and adventurous.” While she is married now and no longer lives in Broomfield, she said growing up here is one of her fondest memories.

Sullivan had the foresight in 1953 to say, “… why not, let’s do it.” In a 1957 black and white promotional documentary film produced by the Turnpike

There’s a certain sense of community still,” Mr. Brunner said. “I really like that.” Land Company, titled “Birth of a City – Broomfield Heights, Colorado,” a proposal was presented for a “…modern dream city.” Truly, what makes Broomfield great today, started in the 1950s. The sense of community and camaraderie that we all

enjoy – A Lions club, a Lioness club, a garden club, a parent-teacher club, Cub Scouts, Campfire Girls, Jaycees, and a square dance group called the Turnpike Twirlers were all in place during those early years with growing memberships and participation. As families continued to flock to Broomfield Heights, developers eventually offered fifty various floorplans, a significant increase from what was offered just a few years prior. Life was very good. The average annual family income was $7,867. Indeed, the post-war economy was booming. As soon as the First Filing lots were sold out, work began on a Second Filing, the land north of West Midway Boulevard. Former Broomfield Mayor Pro Tem, Tom Brunner, grew up in First Filing. When asked if he has lived his entire life in Broomfield, he replies (tongue firmly in cheek), “Not yet.” “I grew up on Agate Way,” he explained. He still lives in First Filing just a few blocks away from where he was raised. He’s lived in his current house since 1983. “There’s a certain sense of community still,” Mr. Brunner said. “I really like that.” He likes the gentrification of his neighborhood too, he explained. “Young people are coming back into the neighborhood and it’s a good thing. People are putting money into these homes and they look really nice.” Today those of us lucky enough to call Broomfield home recognize how fortunate we are to be living in a town with lovely natural features, continually increasing options for family activities, and a potential to become a sustainable community where people not only live, but work and play as well. All of this good fortune because of the courage and foresight of those before us who molded Broomfield into the city and county that it is today.

Local Events Planned to Commemorate

20th Anniversary of 9/11 Attacks By Sara Farris

If you have ever been to Broomfield Community Park near the library, you may have noticed a memorial tucked away on the eastern edge of the park. The bronze statues stand out against red stone, protected by trees on one side and the American flag flying overhead, as names and artistic scenes tell the story of September 11, 2001. While the events of 9/11 happened more than 1,700 miles away from Colorado, the impact was felt across the nation as Americans tuned in to their televisions watching the unbelievable unfold. For many, that morning ended with the tragic loss of a loved one. For first responders, it brought home the mission they signed up for and the ultimate sacrifice it might require. For the vast majority, it was a reminder of just how fragile life is and how, in the midst of adversity, Americans unite and persevere. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and North Metro Fire Rescue District, Broomfield Police Department, the City and County of Broomfield, and the Broomfield Veterans Museum will join together to commemorate the special anniversary. The public is invited and encouraged to attend commemorative events throughout the week.

About the 9/11 Memorial Many months after the tragic events on September 11, 2001, North Metro Fire Chief John O’Hayre was offered a piece of steel from the I-beams of the fallen World Trade Center towers. He was honored to accept the historical piece and led an initiative to build a permanent 9/11 Memorial that would incorporate the steel. More than $400,000 was raised to build the memorial through numerous fundraisers, community donations, and corporate sponsors. With additional in-kind donations, the 9/11 Memorial was built and commemorated in 2006 on the fifth anniversary of 9/11. The memorial incorporates scenes from each location attacked on September 11, and sculptures represent police officers, firefighters, and citizens helping one another in the midst of the tragedy. The names of the nearly 3,000 victims are also listed on bronze panels within the memorial. For more on the 9/11 Memorial or to add a tribute to the living memorial online, please visit

Stability Created Strong Foundation for Public Safety

as Broomfield Evolved By Kristen Beckman

Broomfield experienced remarkable stability in its public safety leadership during the 80s, 90s, and 2000s. Police Chief Tom Deland, Fire Chief John O’Hayre, and City Manager George DiCiero each served in their respective roles for decades and frequently worked together to help Broomfield’s public safety services evolve as it grew from a small farming community to a busy suburb.


eland recalled that Broomfield was much different in the 1970s when he started with the Broomfield Police Department. A graduate of Broomfield High School, Deland was 21 in 1977 when he joined the department as a code enforcement officer, a job that included catching stray dogs. Deland said it was not unusual at the time for one officer to patrol all of Broomfield, and when additional help was needed, officers from Westminster or Louisville would respond as well. After attending the police academy, Deland became a patrol officer and ascended through the ranks of the department until he was named chief, a position he held for 23 years. The department was still small when he took over - only 36 officers and it provided only patrol and investigation services. Crime was on the rise across the country when Deland became chief, and he decided to try a new strategy that was catching on across the country - community-oriented policing. “The city council gave me full rein to develop a broader police department to meet the needs of our citizens,” said Deland. “We met with different groups in Broomfield, which was unusual at the time, and asked our citizens what kind of services they would like to see.”


Our Broomfield™ Magazine | September 2021

The city council gave me full rein to develop a broader police department to meet the needs of our citizens,” As a result, Deland said the department dedicated officers full-time to helping senior citizens, and it began assigning officers to districts to provide consistency in different neighborhoods. The department also launched a successful bicycle program. Deland took advantage of federal funding that became available around that time to hire and train additional officers. After decades of crime going up every year, Deland said the trend started to reverse. Deland was also instrumental in expanding public safety services when Broomfield incorporated as a county in 2001,

I knew public service was for me because it was rewarding, more rewarding than my experiences in the private sector”

including overseeing the construction of a jail, a new police headquarters, and a courthouse. The department expanded to include detention officers, a SWAT team, increased traffic units, and motorcycle officers. “We went through some big changes,” said Deland. “During the time from 1991 until I retired, we were able to reduce the crime rates in Broomfield because the community and the police department really worked together.“ Meanwhile, O’Hayre was a volunteer for the West Adams County Fire Department for about five years in the early 1970s before being hired as a firefighter. He progressed through the ranks from lieutenant to captain to deputy chief and finally chief. “I knew public service was for me because it was rewarding, more rewarding than my experiences in the private sector,” said O’Hayre. “I actually would tell people that I was one of the lucky few that finds a career that you look forward to going to work every day.” When he began with the department, Broomfield was still a farming community and the most frequent calls for service were for controlled burns that would get away from farmers, he said. As Broomfield grew, the need for additional emergency services increased, and the department expanded its staff and added advanced medical capabilities and life support transport systems during the 1980s. By the 1990s, the department was under considerable pressure to enhance services even more to meet the needs of a growing

metro area department, said O’Hayre. The department developed additional capabilities around rescue, wildland fire, hazardous materials, and auto accident response. In addition during the 1990s, the department added a station at Jeffco Airport - now Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport - to service not only the airport but areas south of the airport. During the 2000s, the department built a state-of-the-art training facility and additional stations were added to service Broomfield’s rapidly expanding population. “We continued to plan and to develop our infrastructure to meet the needs of Broomfield, hopefully ahead of the curve rather than behind the curve, and that was in large part due to the really good communication process that George DiCiero, Tom Deland, and I developed through the years of working together,” said O’Hayre. “George’s comment on several occasions to me was that he was never concerned about meeting future needs because we already had a plan in place.” O’Hayre retired in 2009 and Deland retired in 2014. Both men remain involved in the community and notably work together to run the Rotary Club’s annual Broomfield Police & Fire Golf Tournament, which raises funds for the families of police officers and firefighters who are injured or lost in the line of duty.

Who doesn’t love a good tailgate? And to me the best part is the FOOD! I will never forget the first time I ever went to a tailgate party before a Vikings game in Minnesota where I grew up. The menu included sloppy joes and pasta salad and 20 different “bars.” I was in heaven. I was with a friend and her family (aunts, uncles, cousins … the whole ten yards). It was so fun! I even loved overhearing the story one aunt was telling about how when she was making her sloppy joes that morning she broke a jar near the stove and was hoping no glass fell into the meat mixture. They laughed and laughed, telling all kinds of drastic scenarios. And their antics came true when I took a bite of my sloppy joe and bit into a big chunk of glass. I was too embarrassed to tell anyone so I quietly spit it out in my napkin, threw away my plate, and ate bars for dinner. I’ve always loved a good story and I will never forget this one. Looking back I should have told them so that their future glass story could have been even better. For your next tailgate event, I hope you will try these recipes from my Minnesota days to make your party stress-free and yummy. (No glass required).
