There are only a few days left to reserve your table for the 6th Annual BV Strong Dinner.
The dinner will take place Monday, September 23, and will see more than 450 tables and almost 4,000 people lining East Main Street in Buena Vista.
The mission of the BV Strong Community Dinner is to create an annual activity where residents come together in a non-political, non-commercial, non-promotional event to share food and friendship as we celebrate and nurture a sense of community.
Reserve your table online at bvstrong.com. The BV Strong Facebook page is also a good source for information.
Also being offered, BVStrong t-shirts with the BVStrong logo on the front and a mountain design on the back. Order our t-shirt at BVStrong.com by Sunday.
Dan attended Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Arkansas from 1978-82 (where he picked up the name Dan R after his fraternity brothers couldn’t pronounce his last name), majoring in Radio/Television. Dan lived in Jonesboro for 10 years working in radio and then was a TV weatherman for ABC affiliate KAIT Channel 8.
Television was a little boring when compared to radio, so Dan returned to hosting radio morning shows in Nashville, Memphis, Oklahoma, and then eventually, Colorado.
Dan enjoys being involved in the community, having been an member of the Upper Arkansas Service Club and is currently on the board of directors for the Salida Community Center and is a member of the Chaffee County Fair Committee.
Dan and his wife Carrie spend their days doing everything the mountains have to offer: hiking, camping, fishing and skiing. They raised 3 children together and have 2 grandchildren.
