Silverthorne to host annual community day Saturday

SILVERTHORNE – Children are the focus of Silverthorne’s annual Community Celebration, set for Saturday.

The day starts with a 5K family fun run beginning at the recreation center and then moves to the Silverthorne Pavilion lawn for games and hot dogs. All pavilion games and activities are free.

“It’s just something fun with a focus on kids,” said Silverthorne recreation coordinator Nanc Bomgardner. “We don’t always seem to do just a lot of kid stuff.”

The family fun run kicks off the day’s events at 9 a.m. Participants can pre-register for the run through Thursday for a fee of $20. To pre-register, stop by the Silverthorne Recreation Center or register by phone at (970) 262-7370. Day-of-race registration begins at 8:15 a.m. and will cost $25.

Children’s fun runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the pavilion. Activities include bead jewelry making, sand art and sandy candy. Games include a football toss, string pull, potato smash, a giant inflatable octopus maze and inflatable Twister game. The town’s public works department will also have heavy equipment on display, and employees will be on hand to allow children to explore the big rigs at close range.

For more information on the Community Celebration, call (970) 262-7370 or (970) 262-7377.

Strickland to host happy hour for recreationalists

BRECKENRIDGE – U.S. Senate candidate Tom Strickland will host a reception Friday in Breckenridge to talk with people who are dedicated to the conservation and preservation of Colorado’s natural resources and wildlife.

The reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Great Divide Lodge in Breckenridge. Free parking is available across the street at Beaver Run or in the Great Divide’s underground garage.

“Sportsmen for Strickland” is a group of Coloradans who fish, run rivers, kayak, hunt – and understand the importance of maintaining our state’s natural assets for outdoor recreation purposes, said Summit County Democratic chair George Sherman in a press release Tuesday.
