Where do you find peace, where you are able to completely
relax and, dare I say, find your happy place?
The Fraser River runs through the Town of Winter Park, past the Winter
Park Resort ski area and heads on down valley through Fraser and eventually runs
into the Colorado River, just south of Granby, Colorado.
Personally, I will use any excuse to get next to that
river. It truly makes me happy, whether
the river is ensconced in ice and snow or during the Spring run-off, it makes
no difference to me. The peace and
tranquility of sitting by the river, listening to the water running over the
river rocks is my peace. The Winter ParkFraser Valley Rotary Club started a small program called “River Clean Up”. Similar to the highway cleanup projects that
you see all over the United States, the river cleanup finds us as Rotarians out
on the banks of the Fraser River, picking up trash. People don’t mean to throw the trash (one can
always dream!) but the wind does pick it up and it lands on the banks or in the
river. This is just one small way our
Rotary Club can make an impact on our local community. Of course, in the real estate world, a location
next to our beautiful Fraser River is worth quite a bit. We have many properties along the Fraser
River, both condos and homes. If you
happen to be walking along that river either in Fraser or Winter Park, don’t be
surprised if you see me sitting there, peacefully. Peacefully until my dogs rush up to me,
soaking wet, with sticks in their mouths, hoping I’ll join them in the water.
