What an honor! Colorado National Monument Association has been recognized as a contributor to what makes Colorado great. CNMA was pleased to receive a check for $1876.00 from Alpine Bank. Happy Colorado Day, Colorado National Monument Association!
As always, funds received by Colorado National Monument Association directly support the educational programs, cultural and scientific research and park enhancements at Colorado National Monument.
As the Centennial State, Colorado came to be in 1876, one-hundred years after the birth of the United States of America, so the amount of the check: $1876.00 is fitting. Colorado turned 140 on August 1, 2016.
Said CNMA Vice Board Chair Dan Flenniken, “It’s a special honor to receive recognition from Alpine Bank in celebration of Colorado Day. As Colorado’s geologic gem, these funds will benefit our continued work in partnership with the National Park Service. Our association strives to inspire our community and visitors to learn about, play in, and protect this amazing resource. From school programs to visitor guides and park improvements, these special $1,876.00 funds will support our association’s work. Thank you, Alpine Bank!”
