Celebrating Good News in
Jefferson County, Colorado

Good News History

The Good News Coalition


The idea for this unique countywide celebration originated in 1989 when Terry Nelson, Jim Billings and Alan Landes decided that too often the only news they heard was negative. They knew that there were many positive happenings in Jefferson County, so they brought together a coalition of people from churches and synagogues, service and professional organizations, businesses and schools. That group became the Good News Coalition.
