Dog show raises money for tiny house

A big shoutout to the participants of the Rocky Mountain Most Magnificent Dog Show on May 6: Garco Search & Rescue, High Tails, artist Nicolette Toussaint, Shaggy Dog, Rifle Animal Shelter, and trainer Krys Moquin. The event raised money to help build a tiny house for a homeless person. Volunteers included Lisa Hobbs, Jill Hamrick, Paula Bergman, Lyn Byers, Marilyn Kelly and Steve Eaton. Thank you all so much.

Rifle Heritage Center appreciates help

A big thank-you goes out to all of the volunteers who worked tirelessly toward our 50th anniversary private reception at which we hosted nearly 100 people on Friday, May 19. It was an incredible evening with so many of you coming to celebrate with us. A thank-you, as well, to all of those who have given of their time, talents and energy over the past 50 years to make this the largest museum in Garfield County exhibiting the heritage and culture of Rifle and the surrounding area. Saturday, our official opening day, was another banner day, setting a record with an estimated 125 people attending the free day.

We thank you for making us a part of your weekend and ask you to tell your friends and neighbors about this wonderful tribute to the families that have left the footprints of their lives here at the Rifle Heritage Center for those of us who come behind them.

We will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. We are closed on Sunday, Monday and holidays. Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, teens and military, $3 for children 6-12, and children under 6 are free.
