Caleb Lane, Property Manager
Caleb, a Daniel's Fund Scholarship recipient, studied Music and Sound Recording Technology at Colorado Christian University. He always found a love of working outdoors with animals and started young helping as a ranch hand at a family farm in Nebraska. He later worked as a Camp hand, and then Assistant Camp Boss for Roundup Riders of the Rockies Ranch, and a ranch hand at the historic Banner Ranch, in Banner, WY.
Caleb loves the unique heritage of the Village Club and its place in Colorado's history. He is truly devoted to the Club, where he lives onsite, with his wife Greta, working with horses and caring for the village club grounds. "I sleep best at night knowing that members are able to fully enjoy all that the Village Club has to offer." Caleb and Greta love to write songs, play music, and sing together, much to the chagrin of their two cats.
