The crew from Eagle Valley Glass used both a lot of muscle and a delicate touch to replace the glass cover on the Gilman mine diorama at the Eagle County History Museum in Eagle. 

Thanks to (from left) Dakota King, Tyler Smith, Anthony Martinez, Sean Burwell, Mario Casias and the boss, Ryan Bumgarner. Alpine Bank contributed to the display upgrade.  Stop by and take a look.

Other volunteers pictured touching up the exhibit: Bill Jones, Sandy Van Campen, John Bronn
