Parades, book-signings

Last Night

At last night’s City Council meeting, Calvary Church asked to delay the hearing about closing Arapahoe St.  They’re still working out their parking plans.  They intend to bring it to council again in March.

Also at Council, Marcie Miller announced that, while the numbers aren’t final yet, Golden’s non-profit organizations collected more than $200,000 on Colorado Gives Day!  That includes museums, PTAs, people feeding hungry children, trail-building organizations, and many others!

Windy Saddle Cafe has live music tonight, starting at 7, and a cupcake walk for kids aged 2-10.


Tomorrow’s parade will start at 11 and will run along Washington Avenue from 10th to 13th Street.  The participating organizations change every week, so even if you went last week–go again!
