Paula Collins, Secretary
About Paula: As a child, Paula and her family spent almost every summer traveling the West, and these travels always included at least a week camping at beautiful Bellaire Lake. Born and raised in Iowa and later transplanted to Texas, Paula and her husband, Hugh, have answered the “call of the mountains” and have recently moved full time to the Red Feather Lakes area. They have been property owners in the Manhattan Creek area since 1986, spending summers with their three children and family, first building a rustic cabin and now a year-round home. Paula is a graduate of Iowa State University with a B.S in Elementary Education having taught Spanish, Art and English as a Second Language. Now retired, she enjoys playing bridge, baking, knitting, traveling and training with the Poudre Canyon Volunteer Fire Department.
Denise Burk, Treasurer
About Denise: Denise moved to Glacier View with her husband Dave in 2010 from La Mesa, CA. She retired from the banking business to pursue her involvement in her community. She has an extensive background of volunteer experience with various non-profit organizations including the Burn Institute of San Diego where she was volunteer of the year, Junior Athletes in Wheelchair Sports, where she was on the executive board, United States Tennis Association, where she was on the organizing committee that put on the US Open Wheelchair Tennis Championship and the San Diego Zoological Society where she was an Information Guide. Combining her volunteer background and a life long interest in history, the Red Feather Historical Society was a perfect fit.
