Town of Yampa hits series of home runs
Thank you to all who attended, danced and donated to our highly successful auction and concert with Todd Park Mohr on July 30. The weather and 450 people in attendance were memorable. The Crossans M & A Market raised more than $31,000.
That is extraordinary for a town of 429 people. That amount puts us within sight of raising the money necessary to complete this project. Stay tuned on this grass-roots, totally volunteer effort. None of this would be possible without the amazing contributions of so many businesses up and down the valley.
Another home run for us were the efforts of Tim Corrigan, Routt County commissioner, along with Greg Winkler, Department of Local Affairs representative for Northwest Colorado. They went to bat for us and secured the bonding needed to commence construction. We thank Tim, Greg and the Routt County commissioners. Their efforts enabled the small town of Yampa to create economic assets during troubling times.
Another home run is the book collection curated by Sureva Towler that will reside in The Crossans M & A Market as part of the new genealogy center. Cindy Wren worked tirelessly with Yampa locals to fund this purchase, including several works by Cindy’s mother, Jean. This is especially touching, as Sureva and Jean were good friends
And, last, but not least, is that Yampa volunteers staffed the first-ever Yampa aid station for the Tour de Steamboat bike tour. I think we got the prize for the most enthusiastic station.
Stay tuned for our next time up to bat.
