Dillon Memorial Day observance is 10 a.m. at the Dillon Cemetery

DILLON – Dillon Mayor Barbara Davis will preside over Memorial Day ceremonies at the Dillon Cemetery at 10 a.m. today.

“Dillon is proud to once again host the only municipal day service in Summit County,” Davis said. “I would like to invite all resident and visitors to join us for the ceremony.”

The service will include comments from local citizens and officials, in addition to Dillon Valley Elementary School Principal Dr. Gayle Jones. Local Boy Scout Troop 188 will present the flags as local musician Jon Clark performs “Taps.”

A tent and chairs will be set up, and a container of water has been placed at the cemetery for those wishing to plant flowers or shrubs within their loved one’s plot. The service will be held rain or shine.

The Dillon Cemetery is located on Highway 6 across from the Dillon Nature Preserve parking lot and the Summerwood residential area.

Those unable to attend the ceremony are encouraged to consider participating in the “National Moment of Remembrance,” held nation-wide at 3 p.m. Another means of observance is to lower flags to half staff until noon.


Tickets on sale for Habitat for Humanity fashion show

The Women’s Council of Realtors and Habitat for Humanity will host a fashion show, dinner and dance at the Silverthorne Pavilion 6-11 p.m. June 20 to benefit Habitat for Humanity.

“This year’s event will be both elegant and fun,” said Pam Churman, committee member.

The event has switched for 2003 from a luncheon to an evening event in anticipation it will attract more attendees.

“There are not many events you can attend in the spring that let you dress up and get out for an evening with your spouse in Summit County,” Churman said.

The event has support from Land Title, Target, Wal-Mart, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Wells Fargo Bank, GMAC Mortgage, Premier Mortgage, Myriam Construction, Countrywide Mortgage, Wolf Real Estate, Krystal 93 Radio and The Summit Daily News.

The silent auction includes massage and Reiki therapy, hair and nail treatments, clothing, handmade jewelry and more.

Dinner will be provided by Gilchrist Catering followed by the fashion show highlighting spring and summer outfits from local specialty boutiques.

“We are especially excited about our auctioneer, Jay Bauer, and emcee Anita Lopez from Channel 9 News,” said Angela Page, committee chairperson.

“Jay is always entertaining with his quick wit, and his Halfway Handy radio show made him a natural choice to promote Habitat for Humanity. Anita is very popular with her viewing audience and adds elegance to the event,” Page said.

The runway show will be followed by a live auction and an evening of dancing with DJ Dave spinning music.

Proceeds from the event go toward a local Habitat for Humanity home. The home is scheduled to break ground in July in Breckenridge.

“Once the family takes possession of the home, their payments are applied toward the cost of the next home, so the process continues, one family at a time,” said Lisa Annaheim, president of Summit Habitat for Humanity. “The Habitat families are hard-working families who are unable to qualify for a traditional mortgage.”

Tickets are $55 a person and can be purchased by calling the Silverthorne Recreation Center at (970) 262-7370. For information on reserving a table for your group, contact Kouri Wolf at (970) 668-8550.
