Steamboat briefs: Over The Hill Gang gives out $10,000 from fund

Steamboat’s Over The Hill Gang recently awarded $10,000 from its community fund to help scholar athletes as well as programs aimed at senior members of the community. The club’s members designate their preference between the two fund recipients when they pay their annual dues. 

Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club was the recipient of $5,500 in the form of scholarships for the following student-athletes: Finn O’Connell, Kathleen O’Connell, Garrett Denney, Pelle Seiler, Dori McNeill, Will McConnell, Logan Banning, Lennon Vaughan, Spencer Vaughan, Marnie Buckley, Billy Winters and Evan Weinman. Sarah Floyd, director of athletics at the Winter Sports Club, said the money primarily will be used to offset expenses related to travel and event entry fees for the athletes. 

The Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association was the recipient of $4,500 from Over The Hill Gang’s community fund. Of that total, $3,500 will be used for the senior health foot care program that is essential to the health and well-being of people with diabetes as well as other members of the senior community. An additional $1,000 was awarded to subsidize the Aging Well exercise programs, which are made available countywide to all seniors.
