Recognition of Judy Lohnes

On Tuesday, April 19, Second Year Fellow Brady Nachtrieb and First-Year Fellow Preston Briggs traveled to the Central Peaks Region for Health and Safety Days, hosted by the Fremont County Headstart in Cañon City. Safety Days allows children to come and learn about crossing streets and train tracks, wearing seat belts, avoiding strangers, and health. Ribbon Cutting

Judy Lohnes, Central Peaks Regional Council Member, was this year’s guest of honor, based on her more than 18 years of service as director of the Upper Arkansas Area Council of Governments. Lohnes (middle) was honored with a recognition plaque and decorative ceramic statue by JoBeth Palmer and another associate in a show of the organization’s gratitude.

Judy was then joined by volunteers for this year’s program to cut the ribbon and give the 2011 Health and Safety Days an official start.
