Realtors support Emerald City

The Steamboat Springs Board of Realtors has joined several other organizations and citizens in supporting the campaign to keep the Emerald City Youth Center open until it can move into other facilities.

SSBR pledged $500 to the cause.

“We hope that this contribution and others from the Steamboat community will help keep Emerald City’s doors open until a permanent home can be found,” said John Worden, SSBR board member.

The SSBR also contributed $500 to support the Routt County 4-H awards banquet held recently at the Routt County Fairgrounds in Hayden. Approximately 400 members and guests attended the event. There are 243 members and 72 adult leaders in the 4-H organization. Steamboat Springs Realtor Wendy Fisher coordinated the contribution effort.

Staff members at lake recognized

Steamboat Lake Park staff members Joyce Wetterberg and Ken Brink were honored at Colorado State Parks Annual Training Conference in Grand Junction earlier this month.

Wetterberg was named Colorado State Parks Outstanding New Professional and Brink was named Colorado State Parks Outstanding Manager.

Wetterberg manages Steamboat Lake’s visitor center, yurt program, seasonal work program and information services. As manager of the Rocky Mountain Nature Association book sales program at Steamboat’s Visitor Center, Wetterberg increased sales to a record high this summer.

“Joyce’s attention to detail, enthusiasm and professional approach make her a role model for this new position,” said Tom Kenyon, Colorado State Parks Acting Director.

Brink’s work on the purchase of a key piece of property for trail access to Steamboat Lake stands out among his many significant efforts.

He also recruited a cross-country ski concessionaire and spearheaded efforts to purchase a new snowmobile groomer through a State Trails grant.
