Pancakes in the Park, Hosted by the Lyons Volunteers

Saturday, June 24 | 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. | Sandstone Park

The Lyons Volunteers are a few of Lyons' unsung heroes - let's show them our gratitude! Thank the Lyons Volunteers in person, as they host this year's Good Old Days' Pancakes in the Park!

Following the 2013 flood, a group of selfless individuals strapped up their boots and offered their help across the community, under the name of the Lyons Volunteers. Today, the Lyons Volunteers is a registered 501(c)3, and continue to offer their services throughout the community, two days a week. 

The Volunteers will be serving up pancakes, eggs, and sausage in Sandstone Park, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. on June 24 Thanks to the generous donation of food by Oskar Blues, all proceeds benefit Lyons Volunteers! A $5 donation per plate is suggested. 

Sound delicious?! Join the event's Facebook page!
See you there!

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 24, beginning at 11 a.m.

Lyons Medical Clinic & Healthcare Needs Survey

Recently, Longmont United Hospital announced that it intends to close the Lyons medical clinic owned and operated by Centura Health Physician Group (CHPG). To help prevent this closing, or to develop another solution, the Board of Trustees is asking area residents for information about their healthcare needs.

Please help in efforts to evaluate viable options, by filling out a survey as soon as possible. You do not need to create an account on the Town website to complete the survey. Any responses to this survey will be anonymous and confidential and will be used only to inform discussions about the future of the clinic.

Thank you for helping us to understand our community’s healthcare needs by sharing your opinions.
