Boulder History MuseumThe Boulder History Museum is a local treasure, or should we say, a piece of good-old-fashioned Rocky Mountain gold!  The museum and historical society were founded in 1944 and have since been one of Boulder’s most prized foundations. The mission of the Boulder History Museum is to provide the community with a resource that allows them to share “engaging educational experiences” and to “explore the continuing history of Boulder.”  By collecting and preserving pieces of Boulder’s unique past, they are not only preserving it for future generations, but inspiring new visions for the future.  If you have never been to the Boulder History Museum, this Sunday April 7th, 2013 is your next chance to do so, for free!

Support EFAAWho are the people in need of food and shelter? They are your neighbors, your friends and your co-workers. In 2011, 21% of Boulder County families earned under $25,000 per year, 41% of families with a single mother lived in poverty, and a staggering one in five households with children ran out of money to buy food. Lost jobs and decreased wages are two of the top reasons why people in our community are in such need. Twelve thousand adults in Boulder County are officially unemployed and several thousand are underemployed. We encounter these people every day, but are we really seeing them for the struggles that they encounter?

Emergency Family Assistance Association (EFAA) is a non-profit organization that was established in Boulder County in 1918, and

Spring flowers at Home Depot

Today marks the first official day of Spring. Hurray, we can all officially dig out our gardening tools and start planting! My favorite part about spring, besides the sandals, is watching all the color come back into beautiful Colorado. During the fall and later parts of the winter, Colorado takes on a sepia tone where everything, although pretty, is a different shade of brown. BUT, during the spring, and especially when we get a nice wet couple of months, the colors that can be seen across Boulder Valley are amazing. Ranging from the lush greens of the Valley’s fields, to the bright yellow sunflowers growing along the streets, to the expansive blue sky; spring in Boulder Valley is colored with life! If you haven’t already, it is time to start planning

Scott Carpenter Park Boulder ColoradoEven if you don’t have kids, Scott Carpenter Park & Pool is one of the coolest playgrounds and community parks in Boulder, Colorado.  This park sits off of 30th, just south of Arapahoe Road, and has a nice big parking lot with tons of shade and an RTD stop.  At first glance, you don’t really get the chance to see all the features of the park, so be sure to walk around and check out the skate park area and baseball fields before heading to the pool or playground.  

I recently went to Scott Carpenter Park on a warm day in March with my son and was amazed by the different kinds of people I saw enjoying themselves outside.  There were tons of kids playing on the spaced themed playground, adults doing yoga on the top of the hill, college kids eating their
