LOVELAND/BERTHOUD- The Loveland-Berthoud Association Of Realtors® has been busy this year. From bowling for bucks, golfing for gain, they have raised funds for a variety of local citizens and charities, while managing to have fun in the process.
Here is a short overview of what they’ve been up to this year:
• The Loveland-Berthoud Association Of Realtors® Annual Bowl-A-Thon raised $6,182.83 for a very involved and long-time affiliate member that had dental problems resulting from chemotherapy.
• LBAR had another successful golf tournament at Mariana Butte where they raised enough money to subsidize two scholarships, the Don Evans Middle School Awards and their contribution to The Colorado Association of REALTORS® Housing Opportunity Foundation.
• The LBAR Board of Directors participated for the fifth year in the Annual Corn Shucking Contest held during the Corn Roast Festival. Members also walked in the Corn Roast Parade passing out hundreds of flags.
• The community Relations Committee put together 100 Easter Baskets filled with items donated by our members. Baskets went to Project Self Sufficiency Alternatives to Violence, and House of Neighborly Service.
• This year LBAR awarded Don Evans Excellence Award plaques to 77 middle-school students who achieved a 4.0 GPA during sixth, seventh and eighth grades. The award is named after Don Evans, a realtor in the Loveland community from 1963 to 1983. Each middle school has a permanent plaque that includes all the names of students that have received this award since its inception in 1983.
