Ron and Ann Troxel have a reason to celebrate. On July 23, they will have been married 64 years. "And they tried to tell us we were too young!"
The Troxels were married July 23, 1951, in Denver. They have four children and three grandchildren.
They retired to Eckert in 2005.
Thanks to the efforts of state Rep. Millie Hamner, House District 61, Colorado State University plans to re-open the Rogers Mesa research site.
The facility was taken out of operation in 2011, due to budget cuts throughout the CSU system.
