Executive Summary
  • Picnic Season Underway!  We're in the thick of our busy season, with construction activity up, and seemingly no time to come up for air!  But remember, the weather is steamy, and we live in Micro-Brew Country!  Don't forget to take the time to enjoy one of our many great picnics and parties. Our Member Appreciation & Chili Cook-off is an outdoor event fit for the family!  Ska will be donating some of their fantastic brew - speaking of which...Hammers & High Heels is the weekend before, celebrating the partnership we in the industry have with Habitat for Humanity of La Plata County! For a break from your busy day, head over to lunch at Alpine Lumber this Friday.  We have a lot to celebrate, and much for which to be thankful.
  • Parade of Homes Deadline:  Yikes - time flies - it seems like yesterday, but it was over a week ago we had our Builder & Sponsor lunch. Now the deadline for submitting your digital builder page information comes up next MONDAY JULY 11th.  Call the office if you need some help.
Lisa Laughlin, Executive Officer
