I’m still relishing in the buzz of the first edition Boardwalk Newspaper! I’m going to take the advice from Jim and Stephanie Kroepfl’s list of 20 things to do in April and spend some much needed time with a friend. Marjorie Cranston is my neighbor on the downtown boardwalk. We see each other most every day, talking about business and planning for the summer season. Getting ready for the summer’s here is a big job in Grand Lake. When Trail Ridge opens (hopefully before Memorial weekend) visitors from all over the world come to see the beauty of our town. That means our shops need to be spit shined and well stocked for the upcoming season. During the month of April, freight from all corners of the globe descend on our little town. As it’s unloaded, the trash bins are filled with empty boxes and the stores are overflowing with treasures that entice our guests to take a little bit of Grand Lake home with them.
