The Festival is Approaching Fast!
In a few short weeks, the Annual Black Forest Festival will be held at the corner of Shoup and Black Forest Roads on Saturday, August 15, 2015. This year's Festival should be very different with a new theme, new activities for the whole family and much more. One of the highlights of this year's festival will be the dedication of the memorial to the Black Forest Fire of 2013. Governor John Hickenlooper will be the guest speaker at the dedication to take place at 1:00pm.

Dance in the Forest
Bernie and Annette Stalp have been in our community for a couple of years after moving here to be close to family. They love to dance and have set about getting two dances organized as a way to introduce the idea to the Black Forest residents.
These dances will be live music, family oriented and have a mixture of many types of dancing; ballroom, old time, swing, two step and many others.
Come out and join us for an evening of dancing and music. Continuation of this program will depend on the turnout so come out and support Dancing in the Forest!
These two dances are no charge, compliments of the club!
Dates: February 14 and March 14, 7:00 - 9:15 PM
