The Estes Valley Community Center Announces “KUDOS” Program to Recognize Outstanding Team Members

KUDOS is our way of bringing attention to team members who provide a high level of customer service at the Community Center. Recipients are selected by the number of positive reviews submitted by our guests on KUDOS cards, available at the Community Center front desk. 


Our first team member to receive the KUDOS award is Lori Charbonneau. Comments from some of Lori’s many KUDOS cards include, ““Lori is so great about telling me about new classes that could help me. Excellent customer service; thank you! The world needs more people like Lori!”


Guest Services Supervisor Carly Paxton commented, “Lori joined our team as a Guest Services Lead in June 2023. Her tenacity to provide excellent customer service to the community while acting as a positive role model has been such an asset to the Community Center”.


Before moving to Estes Park in 2020, Lori taught 4th grade in the St. Vrain Valley School District. She loves hiking and snowshoeing and appreciates the friendliness of locals. Lori enjoys interacting with EVCC guests and is happy to be team member at the Rec. Full Circle: Lori’s first job was working behind the front desk at a Community Center!
