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.

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.

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
