Message from the Castle
By Terri Wiebold
The board of directors and management of Cherokee Ranch & Castle Foundation have made the decision to temporarily suspend all public activities and pause its public program calendar, including the elimination of large gatherings. The suspension will be effective August 15 and will continue through the end of the year.
“We are joining a long list of public venues across the country that have taken similar actions, as well as assuming a leadership role among our peers in Colorado,” stated Executive Director James Holmes. “This action will aid in protecting the health of our community while accurately reflecting the values of the Cherokee Ranch & Castle Foundation.
The decision was made in response to continued public health risks and Governor Jared Polis’ “Protect Our Neighbors” Executive Order, which places restrictions on large public gatherings.
“On behalf of the Cherokee Ranch & Castle Foundation Board of Directors and staff, I wish to thank you for your continued patronage and support of Cherokee Ranch, Tweet Kimball’s vision, and our scientific and cultural programs,” stated Holmes in a press release last month. “We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as we are able.”
