Signs of fall abound in Kremmling
September 10, 2008
I noticed the brilliant yellow that starts to paint the leaves this time of year, announcing the coming of fall, has started to appear.
Just this week the pair of hawks I enjoyed watching so much in the spring have suddenly made their presence known again.
The chipmunks that would take their time this summer on the fallen tree crossing the stream behind us are now running full speed to avoid becoming dinner.
I am sure there are many other subtle changes happening all around me that I am not aware of.
One community resource that has been around through all the seasons for the last 10 years is the Last Time ‘Round Thrift Shop at 10th Street and U.S. Highway 40. The shop is open on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday each week with all proceeds benefiting the Grand County Historical Association. The current project is to help move the train depot to the museum complex on 4th Street.
The new Food Bank is beginning its second month of business. In August they assisted more than 35 families. The Food Bank is open each week on Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. School supplies and backpacks are still available for those who need them.
Monika Cary is involved with both organizations as the manager of the Thrift Shop and Coordinator of the Food Bank. I am sure she can help with any donations to either organization and please take the time to thank her for helping the community.
The town of Kremmling is nothing but the collective of all the local individuals and their actions within and knowledge of this community. Barbara Lucey, who owns Kremmling West End Liquor with her husband, has invited me to come and meet a very special employee of theirs, Letha Lemon. I am looking forward to the opportunity as apparently Letha has experienced much of the history of Kremmling. Hopefully she will feel like sharing this with us.
I have heard that the middle school prints a helpful monthly calendar to keep up with all that is happening there. As my son has chosen to keep his in his locker so it doesn’t get lost, I haven’t actually seen it yet but I am sure something is happening at the school sometime.
If you know of people in your family, co-workers, or friends who are part of the history of Kremmling or contribute to the community in some way and you would like me to meet them, please let me know as I would be more than happy to.
