Learn About the Historic Hanging Flume!

Join local resident and Hanging Flume expert Jerald Reid for an entertaining and informative evening program in celebration of the Historic Hanging Flume from its storied past to its surprisingly bright future!

WHERE:Radio Room, KAFM Radio

Look at the number of RSVPs before you go and see if you can save that many seats together. If we are all going, we may as well sit together (if we are not doing that, in the future these will be simply posted as an informational "Note", in brown on the calendar).

Please be sure you have a recognizable photo on the web site so we can all find our group members in the crowd.

MORE DETAILS:

Entitled "Re-Constructing the Flume" this evening event, a collaboration between KAFM and Colorado Environmental Coalition via their FOND (Friends of Northern Dolores) project as well as the Unaweep-Tabeguache Scenic & Historic Byway Association, the Museum of Western Colorado, and the Western Colorado Interpretive Association, is presented as part of KAFM's "Lifelong Learning" series. Representatives of, and information about, these organizations will be available at the event as will a calendar outlining spring and summer heritage focused field-trips into the region!

This is a free event though a $5 donation to the Radio Room is highly encouraged and greatly appreciated!

Additionally, a photography exhibit featuring historic and modern day images of the Hanging Flume, the byway and the surrounding landscape will accompany the program and will remain on public display in The Gallery at the Radio Room throughout the month of February.

Finally, on behalf of all the collaborating partners I'd like to take a quick moment to thank the talented and generous folks at Snap Photo and The Great Frame-Up for so expertly helping us to bring this photography display to the public!

    The information shared was disjointed and jumped around too much. Should have started with a summery of why the flume was built with a map of where it started and where it ended and how it was used.

    Awsome...!! I thoroughly enjoyed it and I hope we can take advantage of Jerald Reid's generous offer to take us on a walking tour in the future. I have seen the Flume all my life and now I know the story/history behind it. For those of you who did not get in, I would highly recommend contacting WSA member Kate Graham to find out where to purchase the DVD that was made of the Flume, its history and construction. It is worth the $15 and the proceeds go to help preserve an amazing structure. I snapped a couple of photos which I will post ..Sorry about the picture quality.. Used my Tijuana cell phone with a dirty lens..??

    It was a wonderfully full event although it was sad to see so many people turned away including a good percentage of WSA folks who had signed up on the site but didn't know that there was a second link to sign up with KAFM so they could check the numbers. That said, it is likely that we will be putting up a walking tour of the flume with Jerard in the near future. That will be fun and mean that you will get your history lesson and exercise.

    Excellent presentation with lots of information to process and learn.

    I have been driving on hwy 141 for over forty years now and have always wondered why there was not more information on it. looks like it had to have taken many years to have built it. I am looking forward to this meet-up.
