For three years now, it has become a tradition for me and the kids to run a 5k on Thanksgiving Day. We ran the Pelican Lakes Turkey Trot 5k in Windsor, CO. It was fun. Both me and my daughter got 3rd place in our age divisions and won a pie. It was cold, but the run was good and challenging.
Lots to be thankful for this day, including the ability to run. This race benefited Athletes in Tandem, an organization dedicated to helping athletes of all abilities compete in outdoor activities.
The Culture Division has a new newsletter called the MuseNews where you can stay abreast of all the cultural activities monthly in Windsor. This will focus on new exhibits, upcoming programs and classes, and all the cultural happenings and events at the Boardwalk Park Museum and Art & Heritage Center. Link HERE Happy Readings!
My girls and I ran the Tyler3Miler today around Windsor Lake at Boardwalk Park. I did well. I finished second female overall. The band was out in full force, playing wonderful background music to cheer us on. The race raised money for the band and scholarships for band members. Always fun to run for a good cause, AND it was a gorgeous day for a race!
The Town Board of Windsor utilizes many different Town Boards and Commissions to review projects, gather information, and make recommendations. These are all volunteer-based, which pulls from the community at large. This is an amazing opportunity for residents to lend their skills and talents to help their communities.
Once a year we all gather for a thank-you dinner. These are always fun to see one another, put names with faces, and recognize the time invested. Last night we gathered at the Embassy Suites in Loveland for a wonderful dinner and acknowledgments.
Our thank-you prize this year was a coffee tumbler with gift cards inside! I’m SO excited about this because 1) as you know I’m obsessed with coffee and 2) one of the gift cards was Starbucks!!! 3) the other gift card was to Mr. Yo’s Donuts so when I returned home and informed my kids of this, they were ecstatic!!
I would like to personally thank all of the volunteers on their respective boards. These are passionate people who donate their time and efforts to making Windsor an amazing community. It was so good to see everyone last night and learn a bit more about what everyone does. Thank you for your service and see you at Starbucks!!
