As Coloradans, we are lucky on many levels. One of the best of which is that we have the nations premiere concert venue in our back yard. We have all enjoyed shows and movies at Red Rocks but it turns out that there is a non-profit called “Friends of Red Rocks” that works year round to protect and honor this ancient gem.
On Saturday, June 27th, our own Two-Way Street Project ventured out to meet the Friends of Red Rocks, learn about what they do, and pitch in!
We had an amazing morning. Joining a group of over 100 volunteers to cover the grounds, pick-up trash, and show all of the visitors how important it is to keep the rocks looking good. Jeff, our group guide, is a Red Rocks historian and gave us a traveling history lesson about the Rocks. We toured the visitor center and made an awesome impression on everyone we met.
The Two-Way Street Project is really starting to gain momentum. We are meeting amazing people doing amazing things in our community. We are experiencing the education and joy that comes from helping others. And we are showing all who meet us how awesome and capable our gang is.
There is beauty and benefit in each of our experiences so far and we are just getting started. Next stop, a classic Car Show with the seniors of the Lifecare Center of Littleton. For more in formation and to join the project, contact Kim Tenure at 720-457-1032 or email [email protected].
