Just because we are having to be socially distant does not mean we still can’t enjoy the best of what the Denver and Boulder areas have to offer this summer!
As members of the Broomfield community, our staff at Rundus Funeral Home & Crematory has been guiding our neighbors through tough times for years, including planning funerals, cremations, and burials.
Although we are here for you during the difficult times, as your neighbors, we also treasure everything that our beautiful area has to offer. Whether you’ve lived here your entire life or are new to town, we’ve compiled this list of activities and adventures for your family to consider over the next few months.
