The Railroad Museum has a Steam Train going today, so it’s a good day to visit and take a ride!

Visit the Golden City Brewery today to enjoy their 19th annual ChiliFest, which is a benefit for the food bank at the Christian Action Guild.  They’ll have 15 chili cooks and at least 3 chili beers.  The event starts at noon and runs till 5PM…or until they run out of chili!

Mountain Side Gear Rental (map) is collecting coats, backpacks, and warm sleeping gear for Jefferson County’s homeless families. Almost 3,000 children are homeless in our county, so youth-size clothing is particularly welcome. Please bring your contributions between 10AM and 2PM today. You’re welcome to stay for a while for food and beverages and to meet the agencies that dedicate their time and efforts to end homelessness in Jefferson County. Call 303-955-2290 if you have any questions.
