Alderfers celebrate life with friends, family was created by CanyonCourier
Barbie and Hank Alderfer hosted a party on Saturday to celebrate life, health and recovery — reminiscent of the parties the Alderfers have held throughout the years for family and friends.
Attendees at the party at the Schneider barn on Blue Creek Road talked about the family’s strength and fortitude as it has faced recent medical challenges. Barbie is cancer free after fighting breast cancer last year. Hank continues to thrive despite his Parkinson’s disease.
Friends talked about the legacy of the Alderfer family — everything from Alderfer/Three Sisters Open Space Park to volunteering and serving on boards that helped form the area.
“They’re our glue,” added Peggy Eggers, who has lived in Evergreen since the early 1970s.
