Colona Wins Slogan Contest

(Hwy 550) The non-town of Colona has claimed a $50 prize in a prestigious national slogan-writing contest sponsored by the Billboard Diplomacy Enrichment Trust. Colona’s entry “Welcome to Colona – Leave Us Alona” brought down the house as judges were beside themselves to decide on a winner and write the check.

“It’s rare to see an entire community get behind an effort like this,” said a BDET source.

Residents in the small Rocky Mountain town plan to get together and vote on whether to use the money to pave two dirt streets within the confines of the settlement, which does not technically constitute a town since it has no post office, fire hydrants or local government of which to speak. The meeting has been scheduled for April of 2018 when “everyone is not so busy”. In the meantime the yet to be endorsed $50 check will be kept in a safe in the old slaughterhouse facility adjacent to the abandoned grocery next to where the railroad depot once stood.
