Several hundred people gathered today for the groundbreaking ceremony at Colorow Care Center in Olathe, CO.  The first thought of this project began back in 2005 with actual pen to paper figuring beginning in 2008.  The project and expansion of the current facility is expected to cost $5-million dollars, but according to Scott Striker, will generate up to $12-million dollars in the area’s economy.

The building project is expected to be complete within 14-months, but Mary thinks it could be less than that.  Attendees were treated to enlarged plans of the new building along with burgers, brats, coleslaw and brownies.
