January History & Heritage Events
Fort Collins: Wayne Sundberg will present an overview of the Poudre School District before consolidation. (It’s even possible that this presentation might take place with the help of a good-old-fashioned slideshow projector. We’ll see.) 7 pm at the Masonic Temple, 225 W. Oak Street. Free and open to the public.
Bellvue: Join Historic Larimer County for a Winter Preservation Mixer on January 12th at 4pm in the Bellvue Grange. This is a great opportunity to learn more abut what Historic Larimer County is doing, see how much you know about local preservation trivia, and get to know other local history buffs. You don’t have to be a preservation professional to attend. All are welcome! Please plan to bring a finger-food dish to share.
Loveland: Preserving Loveland’s Community Building, by Norm Rehme. The history, preservation, and remodeling of the Pullium Community Building, 545 Cleveland Ave. will be explored by Norm, who is mostly responsible for saving Loveland’s important art deco building. Free and open to the public, but donations are appreciated.
Loveland: Join author Jason Marmor for his new book release, signing and reception. His book, Artistry in Stone: The Colorado-Wyoming Alabaster Industry is an interesting look at the growth of the alabaster carving industry in the region. Copies of the book will be available for purchase during this event. 6 pm. At the Loveland Museum, 503 N. Lincoln Avenue. Free.
