On Saturday, November 22, Mountain Shadows residents came together with City officials to show their love and respect to Bill and Barbara Everett, who perished in the 2012 Waldo Canyon Fire and dedicated the permanent Waldo Canyon Fire Memorial in the Mountain Shadows Park. A hiking trail was also dedicated to the Everetts' who were avid hikers.

"This is a great example of the power of partnership between the City and community," said Mayor Steve Bach.

The Waldo Canyon Fire Memorial is a mosaic sculpture entitled " Heart" created by artist Eileen Gay. The memorial has been largely funded through the generous donation from Steve Weed and Laurie Wilson. Their project, Ashes to Art, showcasing Steve's paintings of the Waldo Canyon fire was auctioned last October to raise funds for the memorial.

Additional donors include Spirit of the Springs, Housing and Building Association of Colorado Springs, Classic Homes and the Colorado Springs Together Leadership Team and Board of Directors. Park Renovations made possible through the direct financial support of Classic Homes, HBA Cares and Land Title Guarantee Company, as well as through abundant in-kind donations from the Colorado Springs community.
