With deep sadness, we inform you that one of the Golden Civic Foundation's founders, Heinie Foss, has passed away. His memorial service will be held on Friday, May 29th, in the Foss Auditorium at the American Mountaineering Center.
Mr Foss was the driving force behind the vision and creation of the Foundation. His dream, hatched over many cups of coffee with his friends Fred Pattridge, Lars Runnerstrom, Chuck Goudge, and others has resulted in a stronger and more vibrant Golden. As a community, we are indebted to him for his generosity of spirit; as a Foundation, we owe our success to his vision and sense of purpose. He will be greatly missed.
