Hartsel Days is going to be bigger and better then ever! Guaranteed.

We are having our traditional pancake breakfast 8 am (Sunday) and Money Mountain for the children.  There will be a pet parade 11 am (Sunday) and costume contest for the children. And as always live music and the world dog in paradefamous parade with water works of course.

motorcycleThere will be a poker run for all you motorcycle enthusiasts, starting in Hartsel, thru Johnson Village, Nathrop, Salida and returning to Hartsel.  Should be a beautiful ride. (I don’t have more details than this)

I want to begin by thanking Glenn Zirkle and John Keiser for their dedicated service to the Ranch of the Rockies.  They have both served on the HOA Board of Directors for six years.  They have both spent enormous amounts of time and energy to help make the Ranch a place we all want to call home.  They have both been very helpful in my education as a board member and I personally thank them for their friendship. I know we will continue to see them around and they will remain involved as time permits. So, thank you gentlemen!

I hope you have all enjoyed the rain we’ve had this month.  It has certainly helped with fire danger.  However, please don’t become complacent in thinking there is no risk.  A major fire is just a careless camper or lightning strike away.  So please continue to clean up your lots and encourage your neighbors to do the same.


We are fast approaching out annual Home Owners meeting and Picnic.  Set your calendars for Saturday August 9th at 9:00 AM.   The agenda and schedule is in your July newsletter you received in the mail or online at  The activities promise to be interesting and the menu includes hamburgers, hotdogs, brats and veggie burgers for those who are vegetarians.  We will again have a white elephant auction.  This is an opportunity to get rid of those gently used but still working items around your house.



We hope to see you all at the picnic on the 9th.

Dick Chambers - Secr.
