After 40 years of excellence and dedicated service to Vail residents and guests through his work with the Vail Recreation District, Dennis Jerger is retiring.
Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
Anyone who wishes to join the VRD and the town of Vail in recognizing Dennis’ outstanding contribution to our community is invited to attend a retirement dinner in his honor from 6 to 8 p.m. today at Happy Valley Grill in the Vail Golf Club.
People who know Dennis probably know him as the building superintendent at Dobson Ice Arena, a position he’s filled for the last 35 years, but he’s contributed to the organization in many other ways. Dennis began working for the VRD in 1972 as a maintenance supervisor and worked at the Vail Golf Club, as well as the old ice arena at Golden Peak, before coming to Dobson. He was honored as Employee of the Year in 1980. All are welcome to today’s event to recognize his service and celebrate his retirement. Please RSVP to Jared Binecki at email@example.com.
