History

Early Beginnings

   On August 28th, 1989, the Boulder County Serra Club was initiated with a letter from Archbishop J. Francis Stafford to all of the pastors of parishes in Boulder County.  He appointed Father Greg Ames as the Chaplain of the new club, and Father Ames subsequently invited prospective members to two orientation meetings.  After this, the first regular club meeting was held on December 7th, 1989 at the Broker Inn at 6:45 a.m.

 

Official Charter

     By September 1990, the club had grown to 25 members, enough to be a chartered club.  So at the District 6 meeting the club was chartered  September 29th, 1990 in Vail Colorado.  To learn more about the clubs beginnings, click here to view copies of founding documents.  Click on the following links to view early membership rosters:  September 1990, and October 1990.
