On February 19th, members of the Mountain Rendezvous Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), participated in the first United States Naturalization Ceremony to take place at the History Colorado Center.
Chapter Member Karen Mill spoke on behalf of DAR to the crowd of new citizens, their family members, and others attending the Naturalization Ceremony. Karen spoke on the rights and responsibilites of US citizenship and encouraged those present to embrace all the opportunities America has to offer.
Each new citizen received an American flag and warm words of encouragement from DAR members. All Coloradans are encouraged to attend naturalization ceremonies in order to witness one of America’s most important civic processes, the making of an American citizen.
Pictured below are the DAR members from the Mountain Rendezvous Chapter: Joy Poirot, Cheryl Ledyrd, Karen Mill and Pam Jacobus.

Evergreen resident Jack Schnepp moved here from Michigan three years ago and has been involved in theater for over 50 years. He is currently directing the Evergreen Chorale’s production of "Forever Plaid" at Center Stage.
He has directed more than 130 shows for many community theaters, high schools, and community colleges and enjoys sharing theater with as many people as he can. Jack taught drama at the high school level for 40-plus years and served as principal at several different schools over a 16-year period, being named Teacher of the Year in Las Vegas in 1993.
In addition to being a director, Jack is an accomplished set designer and enjoys creating the just-right environment on stage for the actors and audiences. His favorite shows that he has done are "Quilters," "Grease," "Noises Off," "Oklahoma" and "The Miracle Worker."
Jack says he has enjoyed the challenge of directing "Forever Plaid," a show about four young performers from the 1950s who have the chance to return to life and record their dream album. Because of the large amount of singing and choreography in the show, the director must work in close partnership with the musical director, Christine Gaudreau, and choreographer NancyLee Manus.
