“Behind the Green Vest” chronicles local McGuckin story

For 60 years, Boulder’s McGuckin Hardware has defied naysayers, fended off online mega-retailers, and kept true to the community values held by founder Llewellyn Commodore “Bill” McGuckin, Dave and Dee McGuckin Hight, and now, their sons and grandchildren.
“The McGuckin Way” (pay fair wages, treat everyone with respect; give the customer what he wants, and more) has become the guide for running an independent local business in the 21st century.
It’s a great story, and now it’s a great book. “Behind the Green Vest” delves into the McGuckin story, from 18th-century immigrant builders, farmers and merchants, to the store’s proud role in putting satellites in high-earth orbit. It tells the story of how McGuckin Hardware barely survived its first decade, but emerged triumphant. And it’s a love story, of sorts, between a business and a community. Purchase your limited edition copy of “Behind the Green Vest” for $27.95 online at dailycamera.com/mcguckin or at these locations: Daily Camera, 5450 Western Ave., Boulder; Times-Call, 1860 Industrial Circle, Suite E, Longmont; McGuckin Hardware, 2525 Arapahoe Ave., Boulder; and Boulder Book Store, 1107 Pearl St., Boulder.
“Behind the Green Vest” was created by our custom publishing division. Call  303.473.1400 to learn more.

Community nonprofits are making a big difference

The Camera is proud to partner with more than 100 local nonprofit organizations every year, providing our time, talent and more than $2 million of support. These organizations help to make our community a better place to live and work – and we love to recognize their success!
I received the following notes from two groups that we had the honor of sponsoring recently. I hope you’ll take a moment to look into the great work they are doing in our communities.
The Community Action Program works to help alleviate poverty in Boulder County. With over 14 percent of our nation living in poverty, the CAP’s work is important.
“I want to thank you for being a prime sponsor of the Community Action Program’s twenty-seventh annual Multicultural Awards banquet,” writes Eliberto Mendoza, director. “It is the support of businesses such as the Daily Camera that make this a successful event.”
Frank W. Bruno, president of the Boulder Community Health Foundation, said, “Thank you for your kind gift… which helps your community healthcare provider continue to improve, expand services and serve everyone in need in our community. Thank you for your kindness and generosity!”
