It’s Official!


0114181347b.jpgDutch Brothers Coffee is coming!

All of my kids said a coffee shop there would be perfect and apparently Dutch Bros thought the same thing!  This is located across the street from Windsor Middle School.  Expect this place to see high traffic from school kids and teachers who crave a cup of Joe!

It’s extremely dangerous though because it’s less than 5 minutes walking from my house.  It may be the new place to find me out and about!

Town of Windsor Announces Coffee With the Mayor…

Hey all!

The Town of Windsor has posted the new dates for coffee with Mayor Kristie Melendez.  They are the third Saturday of every month from 7:30 am to 9 am at various coffee shops around town.  Coffee is on the town so if you love coffee like I do, this is a no-brainer!coffee3

I went for the first time last month with my daughter.  It was fun.  Although I work every third Saturday and have to sneak out early, I learned a lot about what was happening around town and about the community’s concerns.  It’s worth rising early for and definitely the place to learn more about this amazing town we live in.

Here are the upcoming dates and locations:

  • January 20: Community Recreation Center, Aspen Room, 250 N. 11th Street
  • February 17: Coffee House 29, 1039 Main Street, Suite K
  • March 17: Safeway Starbucks, 1535 Main Street
  • April 21: Senor Jalapeno, 1039 Main Street
  • May 19: Community Recreation Center, Pine Room, 250 N. 11th Street

I hope to see you there!!

The Controlled Chaos of Basketball Assessments…

The Town of Windsor likes to assess children before most sports in order to fairly balance out the teams.

Last night was basketball assessments.  And the scene looked like this:

Basketball Assessments at Windsor Community Recreation Center

This was before we started, but it gives you a sense of the number of kids.

This is my first season as a head coach volunteering to coach my son’s basketball team.  Admittedly, I know very little about basketball but when you get an email, saying they need a coach or your son’s team may be cancelled, you have to step up.  So I did.  With the caveat of I know very little and I do work some Saturdays.

The Town said fine so I said I’d do it.

Behind all this mayhem, the boys were sweet and cooperative.  It was a fun night, and I feel like I met half of the 5th grade boys in Windsor.  I’m definitely looking forward to a fun season!

The Summit in Windsor…

Yesterday, we celebrated my son’s 10th birthday at the Summit.  We all like bowling and we usually bowl on Sundays when we do go because it’s less busy.

We did 2 hours of bowling and almost finished 4 games in that time.  Then we did a few arcade games.  We got a couple of appetizers and some coffee.  We all had a great time!


The Journey Begins…

I’ve decided to run for Town Board of the Town of Windsor, CO.

I’m excited.

Yet also apprehensive.

I know it’s gonna be a lot of work with most likely good competition.  But I’m up for the challenge.

Step one is gathering 10 signatures for the nomination petition.  I did this simply by walking around my block.  Everyone I met was a registered voter and happy to sign.  It was cool to meet some of the neighbors even on a chilly night!

So, we’re off!  Stay tuned here for frequent updates!
