Ribbon Cutting to Celebrate Our Broadband

September 11, 2014

Guffey Community Charter School, located in the high remote desert mountains of south Park County Colorado, will be hosting a ribbon cutting event to celebrate the successful completion of their broadband internet service project. The program, which will be held at the school, is scheduled for Tuesday, September 30th from 11AM-1PM.

Guffey School's 3- 5 graders will present the story of the project after which guest will be invited to walk or drive to the site of the internet pole and solar powered shed , located behind the school, for the ribbon cutting ceremony. A chili luncheon will follow back at the school.

This project highlights how one rural charter school and their community pulled together to achieve this major accomplishment. It also demonstrates the effectiveness of Governor Hickenlooper economic development strategy for rural Colorado, and it also promotes Internet access for education in a remote rural area.

The school's students and staff would like to invite everyone who helped to make this project possible. _________________________________________
