A candlelight tribute to fallen Kiwanis member Greg Henika will be held at 6 PM on Sunday on the football field at Evergreen High School, where Henika taught special education for 30 years. Please join us in honoring a true community hero.

The vigil is being organized by Blue Spruce Kiwanis and Evergreen Park & Recreation District (EPRD) to honor the beloved community volunteer who fell through the ice in Evergreen Lake and drowned while preparing for the Evergreen Ice Golf Tournament.

People are urged to carpool and to arrive early for the vigil, as traffic can be difficult on Buffalo Park Road. Parking will be available at Evergreen High School, Wulf Recreation Center and Wilmot Elementary School. EHS is located at 29300 Buffalo Park Road in Evergreen.

Please bring your own candles or light-up electronic devices, and be aware that restroom facilities will be very limited.

Greg founded the Ice Golf Tournament five years ago to benefit developmentally disabled adults through the Kiwanis's Aktion Club.

Community members will have the opportunity, at the request of Henika's family, to make donations at the event to Henika's favorite causes, The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis' global campaign that aims to eliminate neonatal tetanus, and the Aktion Club, Kiwanis's local program for adults with disabilities. People can also mail checks (made out to the Blue Spruce Kiwanis Foundation) to Kiwanis at P.O. Box 1153, Evergreen, CO 80437. Checks should have "Eliminate Project," "Aktion Club" or "Greg" written in the memo field.
