The roof on the historic Danielson-Faulkender building is nearly 100 years old. No wonder it has a leak or two! What is needed now is a roof that will last another 100 years. Let's do it right! After last week's rain, it is needed more than ever. In fact, it is URGENT. Help replace the roof on the future home of "202 on Washington", a center where art and community will come together for events, meetings, receptions, shows, exhibits... imagination is the limit.

Cheyenne Center for Creativity has purchased this historic building at 202 on Washington.
The purpose? To preserve the history of this landmark while re-imagining it as an expanded Art Gallery and Event Center for Cheyenne County and the region!

Kim Zweygardt, CC4C board member, asks, "Did we purchase a property with a leaky roof? Why yes, we did! Because if not us, then who? And if not now, when? When the landmark is beyond saving? Please help preserve the integrity of this building. The previous owner did much to preserve the infrastructure of the building: wiring, plumbing, foundation work. But it desperately needs a roof to allow us to pursue further grants and funding to complete the project."

The Republican River after a heavy rain
The day after a heavy rain of more than 2", my daughter and I decided to go down to the River Walk to check on how the river was doing after Mother Nature decided to fill it back up. The river was wider in many places, and faster. In several places we could hear the water bubbling around newly fallen limbs and underbrush which the water's edge hadn't reached in some time. Areas which we had sat and played last year were now completely under water. Everything had a fresh, wet smell.
