Things are looking so much better in Walsenburg!
Things are looking better! The mural at 6th and Main is looking really nice! Thank you to those painting it.
Thank you also to the person working on the mural at 7th and Main. It looks much better.
The streets on Walsen and some on 7th street look much better. Thank you.
What is the possibility of getting crosswalks on 2nd and Main, 6th and Main, and 7th and Hendren near 7-11? It is very difficult to get across the streets sometimes.
Let’s keep making Walsenburg better! We can each do our part. Go Walsenburg.

Help for our boy scouts
Trinidad’s local Boy Scout troop has served the community for well over half a century as the oldest existing troop in the state of Colorado. We’ve watched this troop solemnly place flags on the graves of servicemen and women every Memorial Day for years. We’ve filled our hearts with pride while this troop presents utmost respect during parades, memorials, and ceremonies. We’ve entrusted this troop with our local boys to help them grow into the young men the world needs.
Now imagine our community without this troop.
Recently, Boy Scout Troop 269 came to a dilemma: all the Scoutmasters are either too young or too old. The head Scoutmasters are in their sixties and are retiring after many years of fantastic leadership. The assistant Scoutmasters are trying to establish their careers elsewhere while using the knowledge they acquired during their time in the troop.
Troop 269 needs a new Scoutmaster that can dedicate a few hours each week to helping the next generation live the Scout Oath and Law, with a little more time here and there for wilderness skills and community citizenship. The position requires very little background, and the outgoing Scoutmasters have promised to help whoever steps forward to establish himself or herself on a path to success. Without a new leader, the troop will have no other choice but to dissipate next year. Questions can be called in to (719) 846-7390 and those interested will be pointed in the right direction.
I’ve always stood by my saying that I’ve learned more important things in Boy Scouts than I have ever learned in any school. I hope that this letter will find someone that will help continue the tradition of excellence that this troop has established. Yours truly,
Eagle Scout, Troop 269
