May 20th, 2017 

It’s nice to see our neighbors returning for the summer. I enjoy seeing them sitting outside their homes and campers enjoying a campfire or getting ready for a ATV or horseback ride or heading out for a hike.

Some have already had their neighbors over for breakfast and a fire mitigation party, which is a good thing. As time permits please help your neighbors and the Volunteer Fire Dept. by inspecting your lot for dead timber that can fuel fast moving fires. If you need help ask or offer to feed ‘em and they will come.

We have a fun equestrian event coming up on June 3rd and 4th.  Even if you’re not into the horse thing stop by and enjoy watching the events. There will be a lot of activity at the Pavilion and Arena on June 3rd and 4th.

Remember this year the annual owners meeting and picnic is a two-day event August 11th and 12th. We need volunteers to help with all the activities we have planned. If you want to pitch in and help let John Adams, our Ranch Manager, know, by calling 719-836-2079 or contact the Events Committee Chair, Niki Griffin, at 316-312-5766 or

Lastly, we have a very big item on this year’s agenda for the Annual Owners Meeting and that is the building of a Community Center. Please take the time to inform yourself about all the issues involved in improving our community and, when evaluating it, please consider its value to the community as a whole.

Happy Cinco De Mayo folks! Well, may started off with a bit of snow and I must say we truly needed it. Some of the Birds may not like it but that’s mother nature. This is the Time of year that people like to start Spring Cleaning and because of that we are going to have the Two Big Open Tops on Memorial Day Weekend, so set your Calendars. We will also have the Scrap metal trailer here as well. Here is a list of Items that cannot go in the Open Tops.

NO: Tires, paint or stains, batteries, hazmat of any kind, wood or cardboard, no electronics, that includes TVs, computers and microwaves.  Please remember that the dumpsters are watched over by myself and the Cameras.

The reservoir is open and the fishing is slow, but have no fear it will be Restocked before Memorial Weekend.

Burn Pit: Is open and I need volunteers, so if you would please check your calendars and volunteer for a Wednesday or Saturday from 9 AM to 1 PM. I would thank you!

We have continued to get snow in Colorado, which I’m hoping will yield beautiful flowers, and more importantly help with the possibility of fire danger being lessoned.




As you know, we have two positions that will be coming open on the Board of Directors, this August. Jeff Deardorff, and I have almost completed our 3 year commitments, and we are hopeful regarding our replacements.  If you are interested in being a more active part of the community, please let us know by the end of May.  We will need to have a short bio to include in our July newsletter, and submissions for this newsletter get wrapped up around the first week of June.

This will be my last posting as a board member. I would like to thank you for the opportunity to serve.  The Ranch of the Rockies is a wonderful place, and we are fortunate to own here.  Participating on the board of directors has been a good experience for me.   I look forward to staying involved, and doing more fellowshipping with my neighbors.




Suzan Gebow

Secretary of the Board
