Today's Features

  • Father Christmas would have been pleased when more than 200 guests gathered at the Evergreen Lake House on Saturday evening for the 14th annual Wine Tasting and Festival of Trees. 

    Presented by the Conifer Area Chamber of Commerce, the event brought together local businesses, Colorado wineries and chamber supporters for a night of mostly giving and, for some lucky silent-auction bidders, a night of receiving. 

  • You can wear your pajamas to the special Polar Express-theme train ride, as well as visit with Santa.

    Evergreen resident Rick Bernstein has put together a 75-minute production and train ride to the “North Pole.” It includes flying reindeer and dancing waiters at the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden. 

    “We have reindeer that look like elk, and (Evergreen) has elk that look like reindeer,” Bernstein joked when asked about the production.

  • My first and most important job in writing this essay is to invite all of my mountain neighbors to the Interfaith Thanksgiving Service at St. Laurence Episcopal Church in Conifer at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 25. You will “dine” upon fine music, readings, prayers and hymn singing. You will have an opportunity to contribute to the Mountain Resource Center and Evergreen Christian Outreach. 

  • Empty Bowls is truly an event for the community, by the community.

    “Everything you’re enjoying today has been donated by someone in this community. That’s what makes this such a great event,” Holly Simon, board member for the Mountain Resource Center, told the folks assembled to enjoy soup and raise funds for those in need.

    The annual Empty Bowls event raises money for the MRC and its efforts to help feed hungry families. The MRC hosted the first day of the two-day event last Wednesday at the organization’s main office in Conifer.

  • Evergreen resident Patty Potter once was rescued from an attacking bear by her dog Bella. Now she’s honoring Bella’s memory by helping other people rescue dogs.

    Potter started the Bella Pet Insurance Fund three years ago as a national nonprofit that provides health insurance grants to young people who want to rescue dogs. After three years of raising money and slowly gaining public recognition, the organization is ready to start helping more dog rescuers.

  • The age-old quest for “happily ever after” has unfolded in fairy tales, stories and movies throughout time. In 1986, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine set out to create a musical that asked the next question: What happens after happily ever after? The result was a Tony Award-winning musical that presents a new twist on fairy tales. This weekend, the high school company of StageDoor Theatre in Conifer sets out to answer the question of life after happily ever after in its production of “Into the Woods.”

  • “Grease” is the word around our mountain towns these days. Grab your leather jackets and bobby socks and take a trip down memory lane with the original high school musical! This sock-hop show performed by the Venue Theatre’s high school company is sure to have audiences hand-jiving the night away.

  • By foothills standards, the holiday spirit is in full swing, with seven holiday boutiques over the next few weeks.

  • About 50 young girls were excited and speechless when the snow queen and the ice princess arrived for a special party on Sunday.

    The girls, dressed in their royalty finest, were prepared when the queen asked them to join in singing “Let It Go.” It was all part of a party for young aficionados of the Disney movie “Frozen,” hosted by Wilmot Elementary parent Jennifer Trinco at the Evergreen Elks Lodge.
