Colorado Gives Day and Lots of City Business

Tomorrow is Colorado Gives Day.  This means that the Community First Foundation will divide up a $1 million fund among all participating organizations, based on the donations they receive that day.  The Golden Civic Foundation is hosting a party at the Table Mountain Inn for Golden’s non-profit organizations.  This is a chance for you to go talk to representatives from the organizations, and, if you choose to, donate to them.  The party runs from 4:30-7.  Please go–it will be fun and interesting!

Tomorrow night is also a Golden Beer Talk at Windy Saddle Cafe.  New City Manager Jason Slowinski will be the speaker, and the featured brewery is Barrels & Bottles.

Here are this week’s city meetings.  These will all take place in City Council Chambers, starting at 6:30, and will all be broadcast live on cable channel 8 and through the city website.  The meeting packets are available on this page.
