Submitted on: 09-12-2005

GREELEY– The Aims Foundation second annual Foundation Picnic and Barbeque will be Sept. 21 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on the Greeley campus. One lucky attendee will win a trip in an AirLife of Greeley helicopter. The event is open to the public and features a grand opening celebration for the Mildred S. Hansen building, which will house Aims Emergency Medical Services and Criminal Justice programs. Mildred Hansen was the owner and publisher of the Greeley Tribune for nearly 25 years. When she died in 1995, her estate bestowed $1.5 million to Aims to endow student scholarships. “Miss Hansen’s generous spirit lives on through the many students who are able to make their educational dreams become reality thanks to her contributions,” said Aims Foundation Executive Director Susan Kirkpatrick. “We’re extending an invitation to the whole community to bring their families to the celebration. There will be plenty to see and do, as many of our friends from the local EMS and police departments will be there with their equipment.” At approximately 12,800 square feet, the Mildred S. Hansen building includes four smart classrooms, two conference rooms, and a student lounge area, along with office and storage space. The building is designed to incorporate natural daylight using glass block and energy conservation features have been incorporated throughout the infrastructure. A $10 donation will benefit the Foundation and includes a dinner catered by Bubba’s BBQ. Tours of the new building will be offered, and several local emergency service crews will be on hand offering an inside look of their fire trucks, ambulances and police cars. To purchase tickets, contact Bethany DuBois in Aims Public Information Office at (970) 339-6365.
