TU receives $20,000 bequest

Bob Gomez presents a $20,000 bequest from the estate of Vern and Georgianna Rutherford to the Collegiate Peaks Chapter of Trout Unlimited Thursday. 

Gomez said it was the last bequest, allowing him to close the Rutherford estate. 

Current TU chapter president Keith Krebs said the money is earmarked for a conservation fund project in conjunction with Central Colorado Conservancy to rehabilitate a section of the South Arkansas River from its confluence with the Arkansas River to CR 107.
