Another week gone by. The virus is still very contagious. Us “oldies” are to stay in and not catch it. If the ventilators are full, they will take someone younger who has more years of life than us! Gruesome. A friend and his wife have been locked in their nursing home room; he walked down the hall and outside two or three times a day, and ends up with it. So beware, stay inside, safer inside.
There have been around 26,788 cases in Colorado with 1,474 deaths and 928 cases in Boulder county with 61 deaths. It is truly scary!
Well, thanks to Kathleen Spring for making a long list of the businesses and when they will open. All are supposed to require masks and social distancing; the Town is discussing opening the parks and playgrounds. Parents, it is up to you if your children play on the playground and get the virus.
Congratulations to the 40 Lyons High seniors who celebrated last week, with awards handed to them, a parade, and Senior Night. Graduation for all schools in the St. Vrain School district is scheduled for Saturday, July 25, at 9:00 a.m.
King Soopers sends congratulations to all graduates they employed; namely Ashley Clark of Lyons High School.
THE PARKS & RECREATION COMMISSION will hold its monthly meeting this Monday on Zoom at 6 p.m. to discuss flood recovery, park improvements, and openings.
BEWARE OF BEARS in town. One was found near the labyrinth the other night. Also watch for mountain lions and rattlesnakes.
Thanks to Jesse Garland’s band, who joined Joe Kuckla around town this past weekend playing from a flatbed truck. Much appreciated.
