‘Breckenridge Then and Now’ date changed to April 15

The event “Breckenridge Then and Now” has been moved to April 15.

The fundraiser for the Continental Divide Land Trust begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Independence Room of Main Street Station in Breckenridge. The slide presentation starts at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $18 if purchased in advance and $22 at the door (if there are any left).

“Breckenridge Then and Now” will feature images taken of the Breckenridge area in the late 1960s and early 1970s by former Breckenridge councilmember Alden Spilman.

Some of Spilman’s work can be seen in the corridor outside of the Breckenridge Town Council chambers.

Those same images are being re-photographed today by local photographers Bob Winsett, Carl Scofield and Gary Soles to show how much Breckenridge has changed – and not changed.

A Breckenridge trivia contest will start the evening’s presentation. Also included are a best tie-dye contest and silent auction. Snacks will be provided and there will be a cash bar.

The mission of Continental Divide Land Trust is to preserve and protect irreplaceable open spaces in and around Summit County. Through conservation easements and open space protection, the Land Trust tries to keep certain landscapes from changing.

Volunteers are still needed to help put on this event. Prizes and silent auction donations items are also needed. If you are interested in volunteering or have an item to donate, please contact the Land Trust.

For tickets or information, contact (970) 453-3875 or info@cdlt.org.
