Hosting the 2013 reunion of University of Illinois Phi Mu sorority sisters in Breckenridge was local Lynn Kobelt.

“We’ve been having these reunions since 2002 when we rented a house here in Breckenridge,” says Lynn.

These ladies have met regularly in places such as New York City, Santa Barbara, Palm Springs, Cancun, Santa Fe, and will return to Mexico in 2015, Lynn says.


Back for a respite from the summer heat of Scottsdale recently was Sandy Greenhut, who was spotted walking Old Main Street Frisco with Bev Breakstone, the county assessor.


Dillon’s Lord of the Mountains Lutheran Church has selected Rev. Stephanie Kopsch to succeed the recently-retired Joe Holub. She starts Nov. 1.

The LOTM Call Committee consisted of Peggy Hiller, Rachel Blackwell, Rose Mary Grove, Paul Hage, Bill Musolf, Peggy Neville, and Doug Sims.

The interim pastor, Rev. Bev Piro, is the wife of Denver’s newest planning department manager, Rocky Piro.

Congrats to all.
