  • Members of American Legion Post 2001 of Evergreen celebrated Veterans Day on Saturday, Nov. 12, by dedicating the walkway of brick pavers engraved with the names of those who have served the country's armed forces.

    About 75 people turned out to witness completion of the final phase of a building process that began when legion members decided to build the Veterans and Service Members Commemorative Walk in 2007 in Buchanan Park.

  • The Foothills chapter of the National Charity League spent a Saturday afternoon recently trying to debunk some of the mysteries of car maintenance for a half dozen moms and their teenage daughters.

    The group gathered at Lexota in El Rancho to get two hours of car know-how such as how brakes work, how to check oil and brake fluid, how to change a tire, and how to jump a car battery.

  • Art and dance have always been a part of Sarah Wallace Scott’s life. The Evergreen native grew up studying ballet and theater but ultimately found her life’s work in visual art. It is no surprise that this emerging artist leapt at the chance to erase the boundaries between visual and performing art. Her work will be featured this month in a unique collaboration between the resident artists of Denver’s Redline Gallery and Ballet Nouveau Colorado.

  • Evergreen resident and first-time novelist Jim Ament readily admits that his inaugural effort, “Waiting for Zoe,” isn’t shaped to fit a standard literary mold.

  • My personal style of building custom projects and homes most often has meant an immediate immersement in family matters, followed by a lifetime of friendship. My friendship with Virginia Danver Schulte (May 16, 1946 – Oct. 21, 2011) commenced with a jump-start.

  • Say the words “Hello, Dolly” in public, and you’re bound to hear at least a handful of people whistling or humming the eponymous song from the 1964 Broadway musical. With its catchy tunes and farcical plot, “Hello, Dolly” sticks with audiences long after they’ve left their seats. StageDoor Theatre’s production of this Tony-winning musical should prove no different. The high school company is filled with new faces and brings a fresh energy to the time-honored Broadway bonanza.

  • Many of playwright Neil Simon’s award-winning plays were autobiographical in nature. The acclaimed 1983 hit “Brighton Beach Memoirs” was no exception. In the case of the upcoming Evergreen Players production, the show is semi-autobiographical not only for the playwright but for the director as well.

  • Evergreen would blossom every spring shortly after the end of the school year with the opening of the summer homes that had been drained and shuttered into hibernation for the winter. Tire tracks, other than those of the Mountain Protection Association, along with the glow of porch lights, would announce the arrival of family or guests — friends who long ago came for a summer visit and have stayed for generations.

  • On Sept. 22, two Wilmot Elementary School classes helped the Mountain Rendezvous Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution celebrate Constitution Week by ringing the school bell near the old schoolhouse.

    In addition, the Sunday school children at Church of Transfiguration rang the church’s bell on Sept. 18. Bells were rung to celebrate the signing of the Constitution 224 years ago. The tradition of celebrating the Constitution was started by the Daughters of the American Revolution and signed into law in 1956.
