LaVern M. Johnson Park Dedication

Saturday, June 24 11 am

Join the Town of Lyons, Representative Jonathan Singer, Mayor Sullivan, and more for the official dedication of the LaVern M. Johnson Park, on Saturday June 24th at 11 am.
Named after this dear, lifelong resident, who has been greatly involved in the town's parks nearly all her life, the dedication is part of the 41st Annual Lyons Good Old Days celebration.

The park was officially renamed in May 2016 by the Lyons Board of Trustees. The grand (re)opening (post flood) was September 9, 2016 which also marked the renaming of the park as LaVern M. Johnson Park.

Goodwill Fund

The Town of Lyons is proud to present our new 2017 Goodwill Fund to support human services in the Town of Lyons and the surrounding area. The purpose of the Goodwill Fund is to assist nonprofit organizations that help low-income individuals and families in the Lyons area meet their basic needs. Applications for funding from the Goodwill Fund are accepted June 1 through June 30, 2017.

Examples of human service programs include Meals on Wheels, health-related services, at-risk youth support, senior services, childcare assistance, nutritional support, transportation, and programs that assist with other necessary expenses to help households maintain housing, medical care, and utilities.

For the 2017 grant cycle, $8,000 total is available for the Goodwill Fund. All funds will be distributed to nonprofit organizations. The Town of Lyons Human Services and Aging Commission will coordinate the Goodwill Fund and determine the amounts distributed to applicants on a case-by-case basis.

Tubing Ban Rescinded

Sheriff Joe Pelle, in consultation with Victoria Simonsen, the Lyons Town Administrator, and Lyons Fire Chief J.J. Hoffman, has concluded that the water flow rates in the Saint Vrain creeks, which converge into the Saint Vrain River, have sufficiently slowed to rates where the tubing ban can be rescinded. The tubing ban was rescinded effective June 15.

Although the tubing ban has been rescinded, the Boulder County Sheriff still encourages people recreating on the Saint Vrain, and all bodies of water, to exercise caution and wear personal protection equipment including a life jacket.
