Join Historic Larimer County for a one-hour celebration of our achievements of the past year and a look forward to the future of the organization, including some exciting developments to share. We’ll also have a quick vote on board members. There are two at-large positions open on the board, so if you know of someone who would be particularly well-suited to the work we do, please let us know! We’re especially in need of board members who will help run the membership program, ramp up our fundraising efforts, and who could bring technical expertise in areas such as preservation, architecture, development and finance (although, if you have experience in these areas, you don’t have to be on the board to help us out!).
Following the celebration and board election, HLC president Ron Sladek will take us on an easy walking tour to visit three nearby mid-20th Century buildings that were built as Fort Collins’ downtown commercial district expanded southward along the College Avenue corridor during the 1950s and 1960s. The event takes place at 1 pm at Tap & Handle, 307 S. College Ave. Snacks will be provided by HLC. Beer and other beverages are available for purchase through Tap & Handle.
2022 Preservation Award – Carl and Karen McWilliams
Please join the HLC board as we present our annual historic preservation award to Carl and Karen McWilliams. Through the pursuit of independent careers in the field of historic preservation, Carl and Karen have dedicated more than three decades each to the documentation and protection of historic resources in Larimer County and beyond. Today they are regarded as two of the most knowledgeable and respected preservation experts in northern Colorado. We look forward to presenting them with this much-deserved award and celebrating their lengthy careers and many accomplishments.
