Cocktails and hor d'ouevres will start at 6:00 p.m. with the program beginning at 7:00 p.m., followed by dancing.

Partner Highlight - Minuteman Press
The mission of Minuteman Press of Castle Rock and Parker 
is to make it easy for their customers to do business with them, and they know that convenience is of utmost importance. Some clients prefer to speak to a live person when planning their next project, while others prefer to communicate via email. But more and more, they realize that we've grown accustomed to going online to get what we need.

With convenience and speed in mind, Minuteman has developed a printing portal for foundation chapters. Now, when you need to get a banner for the band, a sign for the volleyball team, or flyers for the PTO meeting, you can go online at any time, order what you need, and know that you will get it on time and at a grea t price.
We hope you will give the new portal a try! Just click here to create an account. Or if you pref er, call their Castle Rock store at 303. 688-5692 or th eir Park er sto re at 303.841.8127,  or email them at Castl e Rock Store or Parker Store.
