Horseshoe Lodge Project Kicks Off in Grand Style!
Thursday, January 10, was a lovely sunny winter day in Pueblo Mountain Park. The day offered a perfect afternoon to kick off MPEC's Horseshoe Lodge Project, and about 85 people showed up to celebrate the Groundbreaking Ceremony. Nourished by hot apple cider and an assortment of cookies, attendees heard inspiring comments on the project by Pueblo City Council Member Barbara Vidmar, Pueblo County Commissioner Jeff Chostner, and MPEC Founder and Director Dave Van Manen. And then, fifth grade students from Bessemer Academy helped construct the wall frame of one of the new classrooms that will be built during this first phase of the lodge project. So, construction of Phase 1 of MPEC's new environmental education center is underway.
