  • Hushen embodied community spirit, caring

    If a man’s life can be measured by the ways he elevated his community, then Tom Hushen stood as tall as Mount Evans. If a soul can be judged by the light it shone upon others, then Tom’s irrepressible spirit sparkled like Evergreen Lake on the Fourth of July.

    Usually the fall colors reach their peak during the last week of September or the first week of October.
