Columbine Park gets a facelift

RANGELY — Columbine Park is abuzz with activity. Under the new direction of the CNCC horsemanship program and the maintenance department, things are happening at the facility.
The goal is to give Columbine Park a little tender loving care and get the infrastructure some much needed attention in order to have a fine facility for the horsemanship program which projects doubled enrollment this coming school year.
Both departments would like to send out special thank you’s to the following youth and parents for their hard work and willing spirit in assisting with much needed painting:
Rangely Rough Rider Horse Club — Sylvia Dembowski, Justyne Dembowski, Shelby Neiberger and Brianna Bromley.
National Junior Honor Society — Chris Staley, Daniel McCormick, Haeley Enterline, Alexis Silva, Hunter Schaeffer, Quincey Thacker, Brittany Babineaux. Goat Club- Jeani Lucero, Emily Peterson, Rose Peterson, Makayla Darnell, Troy Allred, Ethan Allred, Jake Smith, Hank Allred and Gary Smith.
4-H Council — Carla Slagle, Torie Slagle, Tessa Slagle, Brandon Rose, James Rogers, Brittany Babineaux and Shelby Neiberger.
The volunteers were excited about having a share and gave suggestions as to what sort of activities they would like to see. Rodeos, mutton busting, demolition derbies, four-wheeler racing, horse racing, concerts and mud bogging were just a few of the ideas mentioned.
If you have a group or organization that would like to volunteer, make a donation or sponsor an event, contact Jim Rogers at 675-3216 or Tony McPhail at 675-3275.
