Our beloved Chautauqua Park is preparing for the busy summer season of hiking, mountain biking, and climbing by cleaning up from last year's flood.  Open to the public, visitors are asked to be cautious as they work hard to make the park more accessible and dig out drainage channels. Even with some large machinery and a few less parking spaces, Chautauqua National Park is still one of our favorite place in Boulder. So strap on your running shoes and sunblock up, today like any day, is beautful day for hike at Chautauqua Park!

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting the owner of one of Boulder’s most desirable home remodeling companies. Mark Lévesque is the creative mind behind KBC Remodeling Services and is truly one of the most genuine business men if have ever met. Built on a solid reputation for their skills, talent and in house approach, KBC has flourished in the Boulder County community due to their client’s referrals and impeccable word of mouth.

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.

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. 

   

First, let’s touch on just how perfect the space truly is. The structure they picked to renovate had a humble beginning in 1918.

Within the walls of this historic converted space is a full service
