Our resident spotlight this month is on Fountain Ridge resident Dolores Every.

1- Dolores, tell us about you, where are you from originally? I’m from New Orleans, Louisiana, born and raised.
2- How did you end up in Fountain, Colorado?  I landed in Colorado following Hurricane Katrina. My whole family was dispersed after Katrina and I followed the advice of my son who told me not to take cover at the Superdome. My friend called me right after Katrina hit to say she was moving to Colorado and that I should move with her. My son and I lived with her for 2 weeks before settling in at Fountain Ridge. We’ve been here for over 10 years.

3- What were your biggest fears moving to Colorado? Seeing a bear! It was my biggest fear moving here and still is!

4- What are some of your fondest memories growing up in New Orleans? Listening to my sisters sing in church. I personally can’t sing, but at some point I realized that was ok, I was meant to do something else. I was put on this earth to help people.
