  • Two Evergreen natives and longtime friends will perform Friday at the Little Bear in a five-piece band that covers the music of The Who.

    Pete Ward, founder of The Substitutes, and David Floyd met in Evergreen in 1974, when they were neighbors and rode the bus together to Bergen Elementary. From good times spent summer camping to winter sledding, music was always a part of their friendship.

  • The 11th annual Mountain Area Home and Garden Show kicks off at the end of next month, bringing together as many as 110 providers and good and services with thousands of attendees.

  • Evergreen teenager Jenna Weidner was singing before she could talk.

    “My mom said that when I was 1 year old, the first time I ever sang we were at the store …,” Jenna, 16, said with a laugh. “She was talking to someone, and they just look over at me and they were like, ‘I think your daughter is singing.’ It was like “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.’ … My mom said, ‘You hummed it perfectly.’ ”

  • 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.
