Please help so that there will be enough money for this 20-year commemoration. How have 20 years gone by?

Vicki Minor

Donations can be mailed to Alpine Bank, 2200 Grand Ave, Glenwood Springs, CO 81601
Checks can be written to South Canyon Commemorative Event or Storm King 14.

What the funds are for:

Twenty years ago 14 firefighters gave their lives on Storm King Mountain fighting the South Canyon Fire outside of Glenwood Springs, Colorado. The wildland fire service, community of Glenwood Springs and countless others have never forgotten their sacrifice. A number of local, state and federal organizations are collaborating on a 20 year commemorative event to honor these 14 firefighters on July 6 in Two Rivers Park in Glenwood Springs.

Donations are being accepted through Alpine Bank. Funds raised will be in support of the family members attending the event. Surplus funds will go to the Storm King 14 Scholarship Fund, originally set up 20 years ago for the families of the Storm King 14 and other wildland firefighters.
