The Mount Rosa Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) presented a National Certificate Award for Community Service, American and Colorado flags, and a check from Mount Rosa for $100 to James Holmes, the executive director of the Cherokee Ranch & Castle Foundation.
Mildred Montague Genevieve “Tweet” Kimball established the Foundation in 1996 to preserve the natural environment, protect the wildlife and provide educational opportunities with regard to western heritage, wildlife and the arts. The Foundation honors her legacy by serving the community year-round.
Mount Rosa submitted an eight page document to the Colorado State Society and the National Society DAR highlighting the areas of culture, environment, education, and historical and patriotic endeavors that the Foundation offers to Colorado and visitors from other states.
“We were so proud to present this award for the wonderful work that the Foundation does,” said Paula Buffetti, the regent presenting the award.
