Giving back to the community through board service is a great way to get involved. The title sponsor, Colorado Group Realty, hosted an event to showcase YPN - Young Professionals Network and the Yampa Valley Community Foundation along with the Steamboat Chamber of Commerce as they matched young professionals with leadership opportunities on local boards and committees.
And while the goal of the evening was to enlist new board members to any respective Non-profit organization attending, I found myself intrigued with the idea but only able to chat about how I may be able to volunteer for now. As Emily and I chatted about the organization and what they might need. I told her I was a photographer and would love to help them document and photograph their projects. She was delighted.
- The Arnold Barn was reinforced for a move across a marsh, given stilts to raise it and placed on a bed of a trailer for transport to it's final destination - Mt. Werner Circle, The base of the Steamboat Grand Hotel property. And another chance to donate my time for HRC - Historical Routt County - and document the grand occasion.
Project Overview and Vision:
Long before Steamboat Springs was known as Ski Town USA, it was a humble, isolated agricultural community. The vision of the Arnold Barn Iconic Entry Project is to honor Routt County’s rich agricultural heritage by transforming the dilapidated Arnold Barn into a welcoming and accessible landmark.
