Lions Club & Local News
Campgrounds Are Open, No Fires or Fire Bans!
As of Tuesday, June 18, 2013, our campgrounds are open, campfires are permitted at our campgrounds and no smoke is visible in our area. The fires and heat in some parts of Colorado are not impacting us here in the Winter Park/Fraser area. For more information, look under our Campground tab on this web site.
The photo here was taken at about 10:30 AM on Saturday 6/15/13. As of Tuesday morning June 18 the scene is unchanged. The view is toward Byers Peak from Cranmer Avenue above Safeway in Fraser. The St. Louis Creek Campground we manage is between the ridge in the foreground and the snow-capped peak in the center of the photo. It doesn't get much better than this!

The regular monthly Board meeting will be 7:30 AM at the Rocky Mountain Roastery on Monday, June 17.
Kirk Klancke Water Issues Video
Local Grand County TV channel 18 filmed two interviews with our own Kirk Klancke in the spring of 2013. Kirk discussed many water-related issues. The first interview is now being broadcast in Grand County on Comcast channel 18 and is also available online by clicking here.
Too many water-related events have happened recently to be included here. For the latest information, go to the local Trout Unlimited web site by clicking here.
Be Aware: Scam Alert
During recent months, there have been a number of phone and email scams involving Lions International, but not out local Club. The perpetrators sometimes pose as members contacting other members to make donations via phone. Unfortunately, if you lose money in a scam, there is no legal recourse and no way to recover the money. If you want to donate to LCIF, you can do so through our local club or by going to http://lcif.org/donate. If you suspect a scam, or if you're unsure, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-630-468-6800. For tips on how to protect yourself from scams, visit the Lions Blog.
