  • Evergreen resident Claire Roberts and her Bichon, Lulu,  have been invited to compete in the American Kennel Club Agility Invitational in Orlando, Fla., Dec. 13-14. The pair will compete against the swiftest, most agile dogs in the country for the top spot in the 12-inch class. This year, 163 breeds from 41 states and five countries will be represented at the Invitational.

  • The holiday season is upon us, and what better way to kick off your shopping than by supporting our local Evergreen artists? Friday, Dec. 5, marks the 23rd annual Holiday Walk in downtown Evergreen. The walk begins at 5 p.m. with the arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Evergreen Lake House to light the community tree. Crowds then walk with Santa down Main Street and take holiday photos, enjoy entertainment, and shop for gifts.

  • It’s quite a hot time in the Borocle, one of downtown Evergreen’s newest art galleries.

    The gallery in the building at the southeast corner of Highway 73/74 also is a workshop for glass blowers Eric Post and Kyle Purcell, who create jewelry pendants, vases, goblets and other art forms. Mandie Smith rounds out the group, creating wire art plus soaps, scrubs and other items.

  • Evergreen High School’s theater production of “Emotional Creature” can be described as empowering, disturbing, powerful and contemporary.

    It certainly isn't the typical show that Evergreen High’s advanced theater students perform.

  • Children and their families eager to have breakfast with Santa and Mrs. Claus filled the Evergreen Lake House on Saturday morning.

    “We served 325 breakfasts,” said Joyce Masyga of the Evergreen Downtown Business Association, which sponsors the annual event.

    Because so many people wanted to attend this year’s breakfast, an extra seating was added to accommodate them. The timing of the event on the Thanksgiving holiday weekend adds to its popularity, Masyga said.

    Judy Berna’s original idea for welcoming her son home from Afghanistan was not elaborate.

    The Evergreen resident drove past the “Welcome to Evergreen” sign near Walmart about six months ago, and noticed it had been decorated with flags. Her son, 21-year-old Army Specialist Michael Berna, deployed Feb. 1 to Afghanistan with Apache Troop 1-75 Cavalry of the 101st Airborne Division.

  • 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.
