A great time was had by all at the first-ever (to our knowledge) Imogene Inagural Ball on Sunday, January 12th to celebrate the incoming Mayor & City Council Members.  This semi-formal event was also a fundraiser for the restroom & shower facility at the trailhead in Imogene, for which it raised over $1,000.  Congratulations to Mayor Kevin Olson, Councilmember Bill Morrison, Council Member Kate Dornburgh, Councilmember Pat Williams, and thanks to all who partook and donated for the cause!  Pictures are compliments of Jessica Snyder Photography and Laurie McGargill.
