Limon recognized for use of Lottery funding
DENVER — More than just an educational hub, a new school in Limon is improving the quality of life for the entire community.
The town of Limon received a Colorado Lottery Starburst Award for using Lottery proceeds to create the Limon Public School. The project was made possible with two Lottery-funded grants: $18 million from Building Excellent Schools Today and $114,000 from Great Outdoors Colorado.
Limon Public School replaced an older facility that had too many exterior doors, asbestos, inadequate drainage, and additions that were nearly 90 years old.
The new school costs less to operate and maintain. The town also acquired a grant for a new playground to be built simultaneously.
Anythink Bennett library @ 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Adults can meet other food lovers from the community while experimenting with ingredients in a recipe for No Bake Energy Bites. Many healthy snacking options will be provided, and participants are invited to bring their own recipes that share the theme.
