As you may be aware, a small plane made a soft crash landing just next to Kalmia by the soccer field, up the road from the Boulder JCC on Thursday afternoon.  According to 9News, “The pilot appears to be OK.” Read more at 9news.com or at the Daily Camera.  No other people were injured and no buildings were harmed. Everyone in the JCC is safe.

We’ve been in contact with the local authorities.  As a result of the accident, Kalmia Avenue is closed to traffic until further notice.  Boulder Police have authorized anyone needing to get to the JCC to drive through the cemetery to access the building, until further notice. Please note that you must drive through to the easternmost end of the cemetery (the Jewish section, closest to the JCC) in order to access Kalmia and get to the JCC.
