Livermore Community Hall is a little know gem in the foothills of Northern Colorado. In 1948 this building was built by the local cattle ranchers and neighboring volunteers for meetings, dances and gatherings of all kinds. Now in 2020 the hall is used for much the same purposes but there is one thing missing, handicap access. There weren’t even restrooms until the 1970’s. For the past 71 years the hall has been a 501c3 operated by a board of volunteer directors. There are no tax dollars to maintain the building so concerts, dances, donations and rentals are the income to keep the hall open and in good working condition. As our population is aging many of our neighbors who were once very involved in our community events are unable to attend events because of a lack of access for them. They miss the community involvement and the community misses their contributions. Many brides and grooms have decided to have their weddings in other locations so all of their family members can attend. We have come to the point of improvement to keep the building accessible for all.
The Jo Story. Jo’s family helped to build the Livermore Community Hall but unfortunately Jo was suffering from Post-Polio and as she aged it was most difficult for her to navigate the stairs at the hall. This kept her from enjoying social events, dinners and meetings. She always was confused why people did not understand the needs of the population she was a part of. Handicap access is needed everywhere. It would mean so much to so many to correct this problem and make it possible for everyone to enjoy the hall and all of its offerings.
The Linn Story. One of the Livermore Community Hall board members that offered so much to the community contracted a debilitating disease but continued to serve as long as he could for the hall. His biggest wish was to see that the hall had handicap access. For all of this community and more we are trying to fulfil Lynn’s wish but we need help to see this project to completion.
The Mary Story. We are so lucky to have wonderful entertainers that will come to our modest and beloved hall for an evening of music and joy. One evening a family brought Mary to hear and meet her favorite singer, storyteller. Mary is confined to a wheel chair but did not realize we were not prepared for her arrival. Many volunteers had to lift her in her chair up the steep stairs to the concert hall for her special evening. You could see the concern in her eyes and it made all of us realize how very important it is to get this fabulous building up to current needs. Mary had an evening to remember for all of us. Handicap access is more important than ever in this time of longer lives and easy transportation.
Not only is the Livermore Community Hall a place for entertainment and communication is has been used as a location for firefighters to rest and eat and for the necessary meetings they must have when there is a large fire they are trying to control. Evacuees also have been at the hall when the fires are too close to their home for comfort. With handicap access we can serve even more of our community needs.
Please consider helping us to make The Livermore Community Hall a friendly place for all. Donate today!
Cowboy Brad not only looks like John Denver but sounds like him. He also sings songs that he has writen over the years.
“I intend for my songs to express the wonder of being alive on this beautiful planet, and I hope they will help listeners to feel relaxed, comfortable and happy. If my music takes you to a pleasant place in your heart or your mind, then I have accomplished my purpose.”
Raised in Estes Park, Colorado, singer, songwriter and guitarist Brad Fitch has been playing professionally since he was 15 years old.
“Cowboy” Brad specializes in original folk and western music.
For more than 10 years, Brad has performed John Denver tribute concerts to benefit the Rocky Mountain Nature Association, the Estes Park Lions Club charities, the City of Fort Collins, Colorado, The Cancer Center of Arizona and the Estes Park Cultural Arts Council. These concerts, which feature John Denver’s songs, have set attendance records at their venues. Brad has performed at the annual John Denver memorial concerts in Aspen, Colorado several times.
Concert is at 7:30. Tickets are $20.00 for adults and Kids under 16 are $10.00. We look forward to seeing all of you June 13.
