Summit County: Community Notes

Daily News staff reports

Nothing is more important than your health and the health of your family. The decisions we make as a community shape the health and health care experiences of individuals living here.

Attend a community forum tonight, from 5:30-7:30 in the Fremont Room at the Summit County Community and Senior Center, to hear the health stories of fellow Summit residents and join the conversation about health in our community and how we – as individuals and as a community – want health care to work for us.

For more info, contact the Summit Community Care Clinic at (970) 668-6681.

Join us for the fourth annual Circle the Summit/Bob Guthrie Memorial Ride. Four distances, including a challenging century ride, along with a 60-, 45-, or 21-mile option. All rides start and end on Main Street Frisco and circle beautiful Dillon Reservoir. Distance riders have the flexibility of shortening the ride at any point. Join us afterwards for a free draft beer and a delicious grilled lunch, followed by the Frisco Block Party, featuring live music. Proceeds of the ride are used to maintain and improve the Summit County Recpath System and to enhance overall biking opportunities in Summit County. Come celebrate the inaugural year of the full completion of the Swan Mountain Recpath, made largely possible through proceeds from this ride! For more info and to register, go to
