Two new community members join the Anythink Foundation

Deborah Obermeyer and Ro Guenzel are the latest community advocates to be appointed to the Anythink Foundation, a nonprofit that supports creativity and innovation in Adams County by raising private funds for special programs and projects at Anythink.

Deborah Obermeyer comes to the Anythink Foundation with more than 20 years of leadership experience, ranging from organizational planning and strategic development to gaining regional support for federal, state and local policy initiatives that enhance the economic prosperity of Adams County. In addition to her newly appointed position with the Anythink Foundation, Obermeyer serves on numerous nonprofit boards, including the Butterfly Pavilion, A Precious Child, Commerce City Rotary Club and the Mapleton Education Foundation. She is currently the Director of Community & External Relations at Community Reach Center.

“Anythink libraries are more than a destination for education and learning,” says Obermeyer. “They are creative spaces that redefine the importance of community libraries. The library’s drive towards innovation and creativity is why I was interested in becoming a part of the Anythink Foundation.”

Ro Guenzel is an Adams County resident with a passion for community advocacy. Guenzel is the brewery manager for Great Divide Brewing, one of the Denver metropolitan area’s most prominent brewing companies. Guenzel brings a strong sense of creativity to the Anythink Foundation. He also serves on the Advisory Council for the Metro State Brewing program.

“As a longtime customer of the programs and services offered by Anythink, I jumped at the opportunity to be a part of the Anythink Foundation, where I can give back by using my passion and creativity to help spark others,” says Guenzel.

“The Anythink Foundation welcomes Deborah Obermeyer and Ro Guenzel as the newest members of its board,” says Anythink Foundation Chair Kyle Kreischer. “They each bring a unique perspective and dedication to community building that will help shape the vision and awareness of projects supported by the Anythink Foundation.”
