Golden Landmarks Association Announces 2018 Living Landmark Honorees
GOLDEN, CO, — Golden Landmarks Association (GLA) is proud to announce our Living Landmark honorees for 2018. GLA has selected two individuals and two organizations as this year’s recipients; each has a long history of commitment to Golden.
GLA is hosting its seventeenth Living Landmarks Dinner this year. The event recognizes individuals and organizations whose dedication to Golden has had a positive impact on the City and the greater community. This year GLA will recognize Joy & Jack Brandt, Calvary Church Golden, Buffalo Bill Days and Conrad Gardner.
Joy & Jack Brandt have long given their hearts and their time to Golden. Through the years they have served on the Boards of the Golden Chamber of Commerce and Leadership Golden. They were fundraisers for the construction of the Golden Visitors Center; Jack on the Board of Directors since its inception. In addition, Jack served on the Foothills Art Center Board and Joy on the Jefferson Symphony Board. Joy has served as a Board member of the Golden Civic Foundation, and as volunteer and Advisor for the annual Golden Civic Foundation Auction since the mid-1970’s.
Buffalo Bill Days’ roots draw from the commemorative trail ride of the Buffalo Bill Saddle Club to Buffalo Bill’s Grave on the top of Lookout Mountain. It began in the 1950’s and has now evolved into a four-day festival. Buffalo Bill Days is a nonprofit that gives back to the community with four Golden High School scholarships. In addition, it lends support to the Golden Backpack Program, Christian Action Guild, Lions Kidsight and a community rehab program, Be-A-Tool. In addition, they produce the biggest family-friendly weekend event in Golden with over 30,000 attendees.
Calvary Church Golden was founded in 1867, just 8 years after the town of Golden was established. In 2017, Calvary celebrated their 150th anniversary. Members of the Calvary community and church leaders have routinely served and worked for the benefit of the Golden community, supporting organizations such as the St. Francis Center, the Golden Neighborhood Rehab Project, the Golden Rescue Fund and the Calvary Food Shelf just to name a few.
Conrad Gardner served the Golden community for over 50 years as an attorney and as a leader of the Jefferson County Library and Golden Landmarks Association. He enjoyed a long life of service to the Law, the armed forces, many different charities, the government and historic preservation. Conrad will be honored posthumously, having passed away since his selection as a Living Landmark of Golden.
Honorees will be recognized on Friday, May 4th, 2018 in the Canyon Room at Mount Vernon Canyon Club in Golden, Colorado.
