Hello Newsletter Readers,

It's officially autumn - one of the most magical times to visit downtown Boulder. Sip on specialty lattes from your favorite shops and peruse sweaters, jackets and boots from local retailers. Plus, soak in all the fall foliage as the leaves begin to turn!

If you're looking for your next employment opportunity, come downtown TODAY from 10 am - 4 pm and participate in the Downtown Job Walk! Businesses who are actively looking to hire will be available to collect applications and resumes for a variety of open positions, as well as hold on-the-spot interviews for qualified candidates. Positions are available in retail, restaurant and service industries for both part-time and full-time employment. 

Be sure to head to the Boulder County Farmers Market tonight and next Wednesday from 4 - 7:30 pm to enjoy the final few evening markets of the season. Stock up on fall produce (including apples!) while listening to live music. Wednesday markets close after October 5, but don't forget Saturday markets remain open through November 19.
