I just experienced dill-pickle popcorn from a downtown Greeley shop!

There’s a place right here in Greeley that teaches kids how to MAKE video games, not just play them. They’re new to our community, but CodeNinjas is already helping children with coding skills, problem solving, socializing, and STEM-based learning. Check ’em out over at Centerplace by the new Five Guys.

After watching a documentary on plant-based eating, I decided to give it a try. Believe it or not, I found a “Plant-Strong” cooking and wellness seminar right here in Greeley. It was a fun, group-learning environment focused on wellness. Chef Eric Aakko, MS MCHES presented: “We are all on a journey; and I hope to inspire or spark some new ideas or recipes in your personal wellness.” The samples were impressive, and yes, I bought a cookbook :p

I’ve learned that when you volunteer at the local museum, history is even more enjoyable!
Back when I was a kid, I learned that the view up on the old Inspiration Point looking west – toward where the UNC football stadium is now – was jaw-dropping.

Having sung with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra for 10 years – and now serving as a member of the UCCC Advisory Board – I’ve learned that there’s an amazing variety of opportunities open to everyone. And I do mean everyone. From boards and commissions to parks and recreation to the arts and all good things, the possibilities are endless!

When the Colorado Model Railroad Museum received a collection of Department 56 Christmas Villages I realized it was my turn, as the museum’s executive director, to get building. Thankfully, I got help from folks around the community who taught me how to use a hot knife on Styrofoam, how to operate a scroll saw, and how to use construction glue to create a miniature mountain display. The result is now on display at the museum.

At the 2019 Thriving NOCO Summit at UNC, I heard from several healthcare leaders, including Dr. Mark Wallace with the Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment and Kim Bimestefer with the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing. I learned a lot about the provision of healthcare and health needs in our community. Greeley does a lot of right things and we are fortunate to have great healthcare services here!

When we were new to Greeley, my husband and I saw a poster for the Baby Animal Days event at Centennial Village in a local coffee shop. We were so impressed by the historical preservation and how much it mattered to the local community that I went home and applied for a job at the city. Now I’m honored to be a part of these annual events.

My kids love to go fishing – and Greeley provides a number of opportunities for them to learn the skills and patience it requires. Their favorite spots are the pond at Bittersweet Park and the Poudre Learning Center. It’s not only been a great learning experience for them, but also a way to connect with their grandparents. (And, of course, an opportunity for all of us to create family memories.)
