Events Around Grand Lake

Grand Lake Village Activities:
  • Tuesday at 6:30 pm - Patrick Brower:  Grand Lake had gambling machines in the 1930's - in the pharmacy as well as in other locations.  After that was outlawed, Clyde Eslick was instructed to get rid of them. Grace told us that he dumped them in the lake! Fast Forward to the early 1990's when Central City had gambling. Certain people in Grand Lake dreamed of having it here as well. 
 Join us at the Community House in Town Square on Tuesday, April 9th, 6:30 to 7:30, to hear tales of the Wild West from Patrick Brower.  Free, plus dessert is provided. See the second flier below.
