The UGRWCD would like to thank everyone who participated in our 65th Anniversary Celebration! We're so grateful to all of the vendors who served food and drinks, to Evelyn Roper and Opal Moon for the outstanding music, to the City of Gunnison for the stage, tent, tables and chairs, to the volunteers and staff who made it happen and finally, to you who came and enjoyed the festivities. The District would especially like to thank George Sibley who wrote an outstanding article about the history of the organization in our "65 Years of Impact Report."
