Sundial installed at Las Colonias Park


The Dr. Tom Burleigh Memorial Sundial was installed recently at Las Colonias Park by the new entrance to the Riverfront Trail.

Burleigh came to the area in 1958 and bought an apricot orchard on G Road. He also had a cabin at Vega Lake and spent at least 25 years working on a sundial.

“Dr. Burleigh lived for 90 years and the family felt it a fitting memorial to commission his son, Joe Burleigh, in February 2016, to create a sundial,” a news release said.

“The design is an icosa hedron (20-sided) on top of a tetra hedron (4-sided). It is mounted on a beautiful stone from family friend Lyle Nichols,” the release said.

The gnoman is set for 39 degrees, which is parallel with the axis of the earth. By reading the angle of the shadow you can tell time.

Call the Grand Junction Commission on Arts and Culture at 254-3876 for information.

‘The Door Project’ is on display


The first Monday of October is World Habitat Day and Habitat for Humanity of Mesa County is recognizing the event with “The Door Project,” featuring artistically designed doors that can be won in a drawing.

Five unfinished doors from the Habitat ReStore were given to local artists who donated their time and creative talents to the fundraising project. 

“Doors are symbolic of the life change when people have safe and adequate shelter. Our hope is that the door project will grow in both, artists and doors each year,” said Janet Brink, Habitat for Humanity of Mesa County executive director, in a news release. 

The doors are on display through Friday, Sept. 30, at three Alpine Bank locations. Donations are accepted at the locations and anyone can enter the drawing. The doors will then be taken to the Restore, 2936 North Ave., on Saturday, Oct. 1. The drawing for the door will be held on World Habitat Day, Monday, Oct. 3, at the store.
