The YMCA is known as the foundation in many communities across the United States, especially if you have children. In Colorado this could not be more true, specifically in the area of Boulder County which is known for its family friendly lifestyle and outstanding community resources. Being a YMCA kid myself, I know the value of their after school programs as well as their swimming and sports programs. I treasure the experiences I had growing up there. In addition to these resources provided for children, they offer valuable adult services as well, including classes, workshops, fitness programs and more. Without the help of countless volunteers and supporters, the YMCA could not offer the plethora of programs they do. As the largest nonprofit in the United

e-Town has created the perfect venue here at 1535 Spruce Street. For the last 20 years they have been committed to promoting, “environmental education, and doing the right thing” (www.etown.org). This group’s dedication has made eTown’s syndicated programs popular with the local community, NPR listeners and over 300 radio stations across the US.

Falafel King at 1919 14th Street- This place may look small, but don’t let its size fool you. This place is bursting with fresh flavor. As soon as you walk in you will be greeted with a falafel ball, and once you try one of these Mediterranean appetizers you’ll be hooked. Be sure to try a Gyro (impress them and say it right: It’s pronounced “ye-row”). The grilled beef and lamb with tzatziki sauce is wrapped in a pita, perfect

Ahhhhh, we love Spring Break - It's such a nice retreat from reality and an opportunity for some much needed R & R.  Especially when you have the opportunity to travel to someplace special and classic like Yelapa, Mexico.   

The Smith family just returned from a week long adventure to Yelapa. Yelapa is a small ocean side village located in a cove approximately 45 minutes south of bustling Puerto Vallarta, and is accessible only by boat.  Well actually, you can get there by car part way, but then you would need to bushwhack through the jungle, then hop on an ATV or a mule while riding on very rough roads much of the way, not such a good idea.  Speaking of cars, there are no noisy, polluting, icky cars in Yelapa - none, nada, nice.  Yelapa is not a
