If the Conifer chamber’s Norman F. Meyer Award lauds exceptional volunteerism, then the owner of the My Mountain Town website fits that description to a T.

Sharon Trilk, owner of the website that provides a wealth of information about the area, was presented the award at a recent Conifer Area Chamber of Commerce monthly meeting. The Meyer award is one of six awards the chamber gives yearly, and the winners are determined by a community vote.

Daddy’s Homemade was named Home-Based Business of the Year, Blue Spruce Habitat for Humanity was named Nonprofit of the Year, Conifer Radio was named Rookie Business of the Year, Denver Adventures and Zipline Tours was named Business of the Year and Bill Aubin was named Ambassador of the Year.

Trilk, when accepting the award, said she owed her success to the chamber and the friends she’s met along the way. Trilk has served on the chamber board, along with the boards of Friends of Staunton State Park and Leadership Evergreen. She also records local meetings to put on her website and more.

My Mountain Town, which started in March 2011, provides networking, local business partner promotion, community support, awareness of news and events to residents via its website and by posting information on social media.

Britni LeRoux, the Conifer chamber’s executive director, said she has no words to describe the asset Trilk has been to the community.

“She puts her heart and soul into the community,” LeRoux said. “She does so much for clubs, businesses and the community.”

Melanie Swearengin with RPM Agency, who is the Conifer chamber’s former executive director, added: “She has made it her mission to use My Mountain Town as a vehicle for the community. I don’t know how she does everything she does. It makes sense for her to get the volunteer award.”
