Surface Creek

It was one of Cedaredge’s many special events that turns out volunteers and supporters of a heartfelt cause and that defines what the town is really all about for those who live here.
Hundreds of books  came together with dozens of book lovers last Saturday at the Stolte Shed for the Friends of the Cedaredge Library’s spring book sale event.

Long-billed Curlew
Jim Wallace just called to report some long-billed curlews at the reservoir. I hurry down to pick up Sharla and we drive to the reservoir.

The Western Colorado Community Foundation presented a grant check for $2,500 to members of the Cedaredge Community Gardens on Saturday morning to help with their garden project and expansion plans.  
The opening of the Community Garden for the season was delayed because of snow.  

The Town of Orchard City does have building codes and does require building permits for most types of construction.
But as of April 8, a building of 200 square feet or less will require no building permit in the town.

With a vantage point that provides a sweeping vista from Green Mountain to the San Juan range, well-maintained landscaping, and peaceful solitude amidst the monuments of Surface Creek Valley’s history, the park provides a peaceful retreat above the hubbub of a bustling highway strip.
The Cedaredge Cemetery also holds the treasured memories and legacies of local families, and its expanses of green lawn and manicured landscaping are a tribute of respect to those who have built the valley community, and to their descendents as well.
