Sierra Club forum

to discuss

environmental policy

The Sierra Club Blue River Group will host a free public forum on the impact of the 2002 election on environmental public policy from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 25, at the Summit County Community and Senior Center.

Newly re-elected state Sen. Joan Fitz-Gerald, D-Jefferson County, and Summit County Commissioner Gary Lindstrom, Independent, will be on the panel. Summit County is a part of both Fitz-Gerald’s and Udall’s districts.

Also on the panel are Susan LeFever, director of the Sierra Club Rocky Mountain Chapter, and Doug Young, district policy director for Rep. Mark Udall, D-Boulder.

Among the expected topics are water policy, forest-thinning legislation, energy policy, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, cleanup of abandoned mines, oil and gas development, off-road vehicle use and wilderness.


Honor the past and

envision the future

BRECKENRIDGE – In 1880, John Lewis Dyer built Father Dyer Church to give the community a place to gather. To meet the growing needs of the Summit County population, the church has expanded its facilities. Everyone is invited Sunday to a worship celebration of the remodeled sanctuary and fellowship hall at 9 a.m., followed by a potluck brunch.

The new sanctuary has unified the historic sanctuary and the Fiester room (added in 1977), which improves visibility and sound for public performances of community groups hosted by Father Dyer Church.

While Father Dyer is officially a United Methodist Church, it functions more as a community church, welcoming people and groups from a wide variety of backgrounds.
