To follow up with last week’s note about the Yule log that is hidden in Steamboat Springs each year: it was found after 11 clues. The Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association awards a $150 gift certificate to whomever finds the Yule Log. This year’s winner, Randy Nelson, found the Yule log under the boardwalk at Rotary Park. He said his reason for hunting doesn’t have anything to do with winning a prize – he plans to give the gift certificate to a family in need. “It’s really the hunt more than anything, to tell you the truth,” Nelson said. “It’s a history lesson about Steamboat. Every time you do it, you find something out that you didn’t know about Steamboat.”
Last week we also helped a family in need. In fact, two deserving families were sponsored by our entire office to fulfill their “Christmas Wishes”. The program is sponsored by the Routt County United Way, who reaches out to local businesses and individuals in order to find sponsors for the families. Prudential Steamboat Realty decided to sponsor two local families this year instead of exchanging gifts with each other this year. It was a fun event for everyone involved. We shopped for the gifts (many of which were basic clothing items), wrapping the gifts and delivering them to the families. We also rang the bell for the Salvation Army this year, as we have in years past. I think both of these traditions, along with Mickey’s Fund that we spoke about last week, will remain strong here at Prudential.
All of us at The Boyd Team and Prudential Steamboat Realty would like to wish you and your loved ones a very special holiday.
