Weekend Recap: Queen of the Slopes, Queen of the Toilets

Weekend Recap: First Friday, First Weekend in Minturn

Recap of the weekend of December 7-9 This Friday kicked off with my very first “First Friday” as a Town Trustee! This event, an informal breakfast meeting with a few Trustees, was what first got me excited about town politics, so I was thrilled to now get to host it. A lot of the regulars were in attendance, but so were some new faces – a few of whom said they had voted for me, and had questions about how {Read More}
