Larry Ebersole: Had a great time at Kremmling Days

A couple from Oregon walking around Town Square during Kremmling Days remarked about how wet our mountain environment seems to be around here. Isn’t Oregon one of those states that gives everyone the day off when the sun comes out?

I know the constant stormy weather is not the norm, but if something doesn’t change soon we can expect the Feds to investigate Colorado’s claim to 300 or more sunny days a year. However, as damp and dreary as the weather tried to be at times, it couldn’t wash out Kremmling Days.

The highlight for me was the parade down Main Street on Saturday morning. I had the good fortune of being invited by Tom Carey to be a judge at the parade. After seeing firsthand what Tom and the other volunteers had to go through lining everyone up for the parade, I was secretly thankful for having one of the easier jobs.

Sue, a local realtor, and Marcia, of Flowers by Marcia, made up the rest of the judging panel. The parade was ultimately an opportunity to view the creative and fun side of the individuals, businesses, and organizations that contribute so much to the livelihood of the Kremmling community. The competition aspect of the parade is certainly part of the fun but all the participants really deserve a thank you for the contributions they make to the community on an ongoing basis.

The Friday night barbecue put on by the local firemen to benefit their organization is a worthy cause on its own. They certainly didn’t disappoint anyone with the plate of food they dished out in return for a donation. Kremmling Days is simply a weekend of fun with good food, good music, and good company – so who cares if there were a few clouds in the sky? Thanks to the Kremmling Chamber and everyone else who helped make it a weekend my family certainly enjoyed.

On June 27 the garage sale to benefit the Grand County Pet Pals will take place. The sale will go from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. and is being put on by Winter Park realtor Jill Childress. You can contribute by shopping at the sale or donating items to be sold. Contact the Pet Pals at 722-7680 for further details.

Recent times can be difficult financially for many organizations so we are fortunate to have the Heritage Park Museum opening again this summer from June through August on Fridays and Saturdays. The Fourth of July is just around the corner, which brings us the annual Fire Up The Cliffs celebration. Along with the fireworks and live music, the Kremmling Volunteer Fire Department will be having a barbecue. The event will benefit the Kremmling Volunteer Fire Department, Grand County 4-H Council, and the Kremmling Chamber of Commerce.
