Chamber presents awards at Crab Crack

RANGELY I The Rangely Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual Crab Crack celebrated another successful year.  Held at Colorado Northwestern Community College on the evening of Feb. 9, the fun event showcased local businesses, people, and offered a much needed outing for the cabin fevered Rangely community. The theme of the night, “The Roaring ’20s” was well received and attendees did not disappoint with their colorful costumes. Food and drinks were served by CNCC Park Ranger Academy students. The event started by Peggy Rector decades ago at the Chevron Rec. Hall has grown by leaps and bounds thanks to Chamber Director Konnie Billgren.
