The Golden Backpack Program, which sends hungry children home with food for the weekend through local schools, has won $20,000.
The award comes from Walmart’s Fighting Hunger Together campaign.
Nationwide, more than 443,000 votes were placed online for hundreds of food bank and food distribution programs. In the end, the top 40 food banks and top 60 feeding agencies with the most votes won prizes.
Golden Backpack Executive Director Peggy Halderman has said that winning the award would assist the program in launching a new summer feeding program.
The City of Golden recently completed construction on the Clear Creek Trail, widening the portion between the Billy Drew Bridge and the Golden RV Park entrance.
The widening brought the previously eight-food wide trail up to 12 feet in hopes of easing congestion problems with the popular path.
Construction was completed Friday, May 3.
On Monday, May 6, the second phase of the widening project began, closing the section of trail from the kayak course to the water treatment plant for widening.
Any questions regarding the trail widening project are to be directed toward Joe Puhr at email@example.com.
The Rev. John Wengrovius, senior pastor at Calvary Episcopal Church, was the recipient of a “Toast and Roast” celebration recognizing his 25th anniversary of service to Golden on Sunday, May 5.
Event organizers reported more than 400 attended the celebration, which was held in the Great Hall of Calvary.
Wengrovius oversaw the expansion of the church in 2000, nearly tripling its size. Under his leadership, the church has been an active participant in many community events, and charitable programs.
Today, Calvary has one of the largest congregations in the Colorado Episcopal Diocese.
