  • Evergreen’s most talented residents were greeted with applause — and donations — as part of the fourth annual Evergreen’s Got Talent on Saturday night at The Wild Game.

    The talent show is a fund-raiser for Operation Homefront, an organization that provides assistance to military families and wounded veterans in need. The organization has an office in Colorado Springs.

  • As Parmalee Elementary third-grader Riley Sullivan walked into Shadow Mountain Gallery in downtown Evergreen on Friday afternoon, she silently pointed to an art display.

    Her piece, a tinfoil bug with five legs, was hanging in the gallery as part of the annual Elementary Artists 2016 show. The show featured the work of young artists from Bergen Meadow, Carlson, King-Murphy, Montessori School of Evergreen, Parmalee and Wilmot.

  • The Evergreen Chorale’s production of “Guys & Dolls” — in addition to having great music and a comedic plot — has some special elements.

    First, Pat Payne is back directing his second show for the Chorale. Payne is well known in the Denver area theater scene, most recently at the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities.

    Second, the cast is a 50/50 mix of Evergreen Chorale regulars from the area and those coming up the hill to be part of the production.

    Area high school artists are demonstrating their creativity and artistic prowess at an annual show just for them at Center for the Arts Evergreen.

    This is the 12th year for the show, which highlights talented teens from Platte Canyon, Conifer, Evergreen and Clear Creek high schools. Nearly 70 pieces of art will be displayed through Feb. 25.

  • The food bank at Evergreen Christian Outreach is known for helping area residents keep food in the cupboard during lean times, but it also keeps furry friends from going without, thanks to an annual dog-food drive by Mountain Parks Veterinary Hospital. 

    This year's holiday drive netted 3,200 pounds of pet food, the largest donation since EChO began receiving the annual contribution in 2011.

  • Who knew Abraham Lincoln’s birthday could be a romantic holiday?

    Last Thursday, the day before what would have been Lincoln’s 207th birthday, Evergreen Middle School social studies teacher Owen Volzke proposed to his girlfriend of two years, Ashley Safford, a sixth-grade math teacher at the school.

    Volzke chose the day because he has an affinity for Lincoln and because the couple watched the movie “Lincoln,” starring Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Field, on one of their first dates.

  • The ninth annual egg-decorating contest sponsored by the Evergreen Downtown Business Association is filled with opportunities for amateur and professional artists. Newly named the Art of the Egg, the contest features displays of creative works at Evergreen National Bank and local art galleries from the end of March through April.

  • Hard work, endless hours of practice and a resilient spirit carried the Evergreen High Poms back to national competition this year — and their trip to Orlando, Fla., in late January culminated with a fifth-in-the-nation finish in hip-hop.

    “We decided that we were going to go to finals this year,” head coach Monique O’Neill said of her squad.

    And reach the finals they did.
