Stating the obvious...

Denison has soooo much to offer!  Because Joe and I are Denison alums we know not to miss a Vail concert, or to visit the Denison website ( to see what lectures are coming and figure out what sporting events we can make work with our schedule.  I'd like to encourage you to do the same thing and if you need some help with identifying buildings, parking, or anything else- like how early to go so you get a good seat- let me know!

We're very excited about our interaction with Denison tomorrow- Clare's 3rd-4th grade basketball team will get to play another 3rd-4th grade girls team during the Denison Women's 2 pm game! What a fun opportunity for the girls, Joe and the coaches and the spectators.... and it gets to Livingston Gym to see great athletic scholars playing basketball!  A few weeks ago some of the women on the DU team came to Clare's practice.  Good things happen when our inner communities connect- town and gown - go both ways and the playing field is a fun place to see this working well.

Another great opportunity reflecting what our community values- education, life long learning- is being offered by Welsh Hills Montessori School (  A lecture series on Feb 11, March 25, April 22, May 13th all at 7 pm- wonderful topics with fabulous speakers- check out the website or look for the posters around town with more details!

Thank you to both of these academic institutions that make our community all the stronger by offering fabulous opportunities for learning and fun.

**Perfect timing- I just received an email encouraging me to bring friends to wonderful MLKing events on campus- check it out:  An event to note is:
