Fund Raising projects
Where our money is spent:
On the last Saturday of each month (except Nov. and Dec.) we sponsor a community wide potluck dinner. We meet at 5:30 in the Community Room beneath the GVM office. Folks bring their own table service and a dish to share. Coffee and wine are available. We always have nice variety of delicious creations. Welcome neighbors, newcomers and visitors. This is an excellent opportunity to meet and visit.
Glacier View Community Holiday Dinner and Gift Exchange are held at our Mountain Meetin’ in late December. Each family is requested to bring a dish to share, as at regular potlucks, but this evening is complete with holiday decorations and a (one per person) gift exchange. Glacier Gals furnish Main course meats and beverages. This is a chance to wear that special holiday sweater and join in the fun.
Our Memorial and Labor Day pancake breakfasts are a longstanding tradition! They provide up the bulk of our fund raising income. Glacier Gals, volunteered husbands and a host of other folks work together on all the jobs that make these breakfasts so successful. The “flipping” begins at 7:00 AM at our Mountain Meetin’ Place and continues until noon. Just follow our large colorful signs on Highway 74E.
Glacier Gals coordinates with GVM manager, Larry. Once a year, a day is set aside – usually in August, to work on community wish list stuff. GVM residents and property owners work together. Projects can include painting, trail maintenance, spring cleaning, road cleanup, fence repair and maybe a bit of office work. This is a good way to participate and appreciate all types of work that is required in a community such as ours. The more helper the better.
Glacier Gals provides a continental breakfast and sloppy joe lunch. Dates and times are published in the Glacier Viewpoint, and notices are posted on the bulletin boards at the Office and near mail boxes clusters.
Glacier Gals try to get together about once a month to car pool and to go off on day long field trips. The day will lunch somewhere and we make a day of fellowship and fun. Our starting point is the Glacier View Office.
As a fund raiser, Glacier Gals provides a variety of GVM Logo wear. Items are on display at the Glacier View Office and various social get togethers. Mary Hench (334-9030) is in charge of this project.
One of our fund raisers is recycling of aluminum. Big Blue collection barrels for the collection of soda cans ONLY are located across from the GVM office next to the large trash compactor. There is a huge colorful sign that is hard to miss. We accept all sorts of aluminum, pie pans, tubing, non coated cook ware, screens etc. These forms of aluminum can be left in the immediate area and will be recycled separately. Our membership take turns sorting and bagging cans and everything is trucked to Aragon Metals in Fort Collins several times a month.
Glacier Gals organizes volunteers the first Thursday (weather permitting) of warmer months to remove clutter along five miles of Highway 74E (Red Feather Lakes Road). That whole stretch of highway borders our home territory - Glacier View Meadows. Signs are posted as a reminder near mail box clusters.
Glacier Gals wants to provide every residence in Glacier View Meadows with highly visible reflective house number signs. These are strongly recommended by our Glacier View Volunteer Fire District. Order forms are available at the community office. We assemble and sell signs with or without posts at a very reasonable price. These have proven to save valuable time in life threatening situations.
