Dear neighbors, we believe this neighborhood has a deep appreciation of community and a natural aptitude to look after each other. This is invaluable, and Gunbarrel Estates is quite simply good people.
In light of our neighboring communities experiencing such devastation and loss, GEHOA has decided to donate the Holiday Lights contest fund to the Boulder County Wildfire Fund. We have donated $100 from Gunbarrel Estates. Thank you, GEHOA❤️
