The library is celebrating the first day of winter by offering a chance to make your own festive ornament from 2-4PM. They will have a variety of projects for you to choose from. Add your own presonal touches. Suitable for all ages.

The Golden police are offering the chance to have photos with Santa tonight between 6 and 8PM in City Council Chambers. Kids, bring your letters to Santa! Officers will be collecting letters and making sure Santa receives them. You can also help make someone else’s holiday bright – donations of non-perishable food items for our local food bank will also be accepted for Golden’s local food bank.
