Get Your Free Energy-Saving Tree from the Arbor Day Foundation and Black Hills Energy
Denver, CO — Aug. 29, 2016 — In partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation’s Energy-Saving Trees initiative, Black Hills Energy is distributing approximately 1,100 free trees, one per household, to customers who reserve one beginning today.
A free tree can be reserved on a first come, first served basis at www.arborday.org/blackhillsenergy. The 3- to 4-foot-tall dormant trees will be delivered directly to customers for fall planting in October.
“Our partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation in the Energy-Saving Trees program offers us the opportunity to promote the cleaner air, energy savings and other valuable benefits you gain by planting the right tree in the right place,” said Susan Bailey, Black Hills Energy’s Vice President of natural gas operations for Colorado.
Black Hills Energy customers can use the handy online tool at www.arborday.org/blackhillsenergy to quickly determine where to plant a tree to gain the most energy-saving benefits. “Strategically planted trees block the hot summer sun and cold winter winds to help cut energy usage without sacrificing comfort,” Bailey said.
Black Hills also is delivering a safety message: At least two business days before you plan to dig, whether you’re a homeowner planting a tree or a contractor excavating with a backhoe, Call Before You Dig to have underground utility lines marked. It’s free, it’s safe and it’s the law. In CO, just make a free call by dialing 811 to reach Colorado One Call. You also can schedule online at http://colorado811.org.
Bailey also urges customers to follow the safe digging practices listed at www.blackhillsenergy.com/811. Those include using white spray-paint to mark the area where you plan to dig before line locaters arrive.
“Underground utility lines may be out of sight, but they should never be out of mind,” Bailey said. “It only takes a minute to Call Before You Dig, and it can save untold time and trouble. Please follow the rules and dig safely. We want you and your family to enjoy your new tree for a long, long time.”

With Grand Avenue bridge construction in full swing, downtown businesses are hoping a new monthly event will bring out locals and visitors alike.
Called “Glen-A-Palooza,” it takes the second Friday time slot formerly occupied by Glenwood’s art walk and adds a whole series of activities to the mix.
“We really wanted to see an event downtown and remind people that we’re still open for business,” said Chrissy Manes of Providence Apothecary, who spearheads the event.
“I get a lot of feedback from my customers that businesses don’t stay open late enough,” she added. “The whole idea is to introduce people to stores that they’ve never even been in before.”
Glen-A-Palooza debuted last month to what Manes described as an amazing turnout.
“I’ve had really great feedback,” she said. “Businesses had a lot of traffic come through their doors.”
This month takes an extra step by closing Cooper Avenue between Seventh and Eighth streets.

In celebration of its 50th Birthday, Sunlight Mountain Resort has partnered Colorado ski maker Meier Skis to build special limited-edition 50th Anniversary skis! Now for a limited time only, we’re inviting friends and family to reserve a pair of Sunlight skis at the wholesale price of $525, nearly 50 percent off the retail price. Offer ends Sept. 30, 2016.
Like all of Meier’s skis, Sunlight’s 50th Anniversary skis are made from Colorado “beetle-kill” pine trees so each ski has its own unique wood grain pigmentation. The Sunlight 50s are constructed with the same dimensions as Meier’s award-winning Quick Draw (131-88-111). This front-side carver is Meier’s best seller and has given weekend warriors and ski racers a reason to smile while flying down the hill.
With its camRise camber technology and 88 mm waist, this is the ski designed specifically for you. The wide shovel and narrow waist give you have the ability to maneuver edge-to-edge effortlessly while the tip floats through powder and crushes the crud. This ski will make you feel like a little kid falling in love with skiing again, which is exactly what Sunlight Mountain Resort is all about!
Local graphic designer Gina Sheldrake of Wedeln Designs of Glenwood Springs worked with the team at Meier to create this incredible illustrated tribute to Sunlight. These are the skis your friends will be talking about! Simply fill out the order form on the following page by Sept. 30 to take advantage of this special invitation. Thanks for supporting Sunlight!
The Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association was named 2013 Chamber of the Year by ACCE!
