For Evelyn Tileston, executive director of the Independent Life Center, the past few months have been a “dream come true.” Months after purchasing the building located at 438 Yampa Ave., Tileston and the ILC staff received another boost Wednesday morning in the form of a check for $460,000 to start several building renovation projects.
