Daddy’s Homemade Syrups
When Dannie Burr of Evergreen, a stay-at-home dad, wanted his children to have a healthier breakfast, he took to the kitchen. There he used trial-and-error to create healthy syrups that his three children would eat.
From that, Daddy’s Homemade Syrups was born, and in a short time, the Burrs have had booths at many foothills events along with an online sales option. They have become cheerleaders for the community through their involvement.
According to Dannie’s wife, Amber, the syrup’s base is sugar, not maple sap, though people ask about that all the time. Dannie, also known as Daddy, spends late nights in the family kitchen experimenting with flavors, which range from maple and vanilla to chocolate, blueberry, cherry, cinnamon and more.
Amber explained that the syrups are not just for breakfast but can be used in baked goods and on fish and meats, too. In fact, the website has recipes.
To continue to help children have enough to eat, the Burrs are having a nonperishable food drive at the Elevation Celebration on Sutton Road in Conifer July 24-25 to benefit Mountain Backpacks.

Elders knows that Arts Cool
It’s time to unleash your inner artist — no matter what your age — at Arts Cool.
Jules Elders teaches classes, kids camps, adult paint-and-sip programs and more on the third floor of the Bear Paw Stanbro Property Management building in downtown Evergreen.
What started as an enrichment program in Cherry Creek Schools turned into online art classes in Evergreen during the pandemic.
Zoom classes were a blessing in disguise, Elders said, because her students came from around the United States, with art as the common denominator.
“My Colorado students have gotten to meet others from around the country,” she said.
You name the artistic style, she teaches it: acrylics, watercolor, oil, pastels, and even crayons and markers for the younger children.
Camps run all summer, each with a music and science component. For example, she said, children may draw pictures of dinosaurs while learning a little bit about the animals and listening to music about dinosaurs.
Classes have no levels. Instead, Elders said, she tailors the class to students’ ages and abilities.
She talks about incorporating all components of STEAM — Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math — into everything she teaches.
Elders was working in advertising when she decided to return to her painting and art passions, so she became an art teacher. You can find some of her work on the JR’s Landscaping and Parkside Café buildings in Bergen Park.

Bosworth opens naturopathic medical clinic
Dr. Celeste Bosworth has opened a small naturopathic medical practice in the Green Valley shopping center in Conifer.
Naturopathic medicine looks at what Bosworth termed “old medicine” to help people lead healthier lives.
“It’s the idea that prevention is better than treating sickness,” she explained. “We meet a patient where they are at, and we look at what is going on with that person. Do they need some changes in diet, to increase exercise or maybe they need prescription medication?”
Naturopathic medicine means doing the minimum force necessary to bring people to their optimal health, she said.
“Our forté in looking at lifestyle and herbal medicine and supplements to help support the body and people’s health,” she said.
The Bailey resident graduated in 2018 and landed a prestigious residency that gave her insight into helping people with all types of issues. She also is trained in biofeedback, which is another tool in her arsenal to help her help people feel better.
The clinic is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday or by appointment. For more information about Bosworth and her clinic, visit www.elemental-medicine-nd.com.
