Have you ever wondered what steps are involved in purchasing a home? Come find out at our free homebuyer education class today from 12:30-5 p.m. in the Buffalo Mountain Room at the County Commons in Frisco. You will learn the basics A-Z what it takes to purchase a home, as now sure is a great time to do so! The class is sponsored by the Colorado Housing and Finance Authority, put on by the Summit Combined Housing Authority with help from local volunteers who will walk you through the lending process, real estate transaction, title company portion and home inspection. There will also be information on current down payment assistance programs and much more. Snacks will be provided. Register so that we know how many people to expect; call Joy at (970) 423-7041 or email with any questions or to register for this great class.

Join Friends of the Dillon Ranger District on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for its annual volunteer celebration and National Public Lands Day at the Windy Point Pavilion/Prospector Campground. After a light breakfast, volunteers will participate in their choice of service project helping to clean up Swan Mountain Road or continuing trail maintenance along the Lakeshore Trail. The day will wrap up with a barbecue lunch and party at noon (provided by FDRD), complete with prize giveaways for volunteers! This is a zero-waste event so volunteers are encouraged to bring a reusable cup, plate and utensil and come dressed for a day outdoors. For details, directions and to register for this event, visit or call (970) 262-3449. All FDRD volunteers and newcomers are welcome and we hope you can join us to celebrate.
