Two weeks and counting! Thanks to everyone who has pitched in to get our Community through a very busy and productive week….with two more of the same to come.
Recap of the week:
On Monday City Councilor and former Mayor Christina Rinderle toured Liberty. She was impressed with what she saw and who she got to meet. We discussed the best way to approach Governor Hickenlooper regarding potential induction into the Dyslexic Hall of Fame on November 10, 2012. I wrote an invitation letter to the Governor asking him to consider being inducted into the Hall of Fame, Christina will be hand delivering my letter to the Governor this Sunday at the Taste of Durango.
Wednesday was Octopi Durango (sounds better than squid) with Mr. C’s class and parent volunteers doing autopsies on tentacle sea creatures.
Thursday was Open House, both day and evening and five potential families got a taste of Liberty. Again, thanks to everyone on our welcome team!
Friday morning we travelled to the Havasupai School and Village thanks to a magnificent Power Point presentation with pictures from 30 years ago as well as the present, presented by the former school principal Roy Lyons.
This afternoon many of us will head out to Camp Atchison on the shores of McPhee Reservoir and others will join us tomorrow for our Spring Family Camping Trip!
