The New Year started with confusion on my part as I put the wrong time on our January meeting on the newsletter.At our monthly meeting we had a discussion of the meetings in the winter months when it is dark early and roads can be slick making it tough for members to attend. It was motioned and passed to change the meetings from 7:30 p.m.  to 7 p.m. and no longer having meetings in January and February. 

Claudia Worth reported that the insurance for the post office building would be $200 per month and discussion on this and the contract with the city for the historic park was put to a committee which will meet at the Historic park on Wednesday January 18, 2017 at 1:30 p.m. 

Our thoughts are with the family of Don Eafanti a long time Wheat Ridge resident, member of the Wheat Ridge Historic Society  and former City Council member. One of Don's contributions to Wheat Ridge was the founding of the Kite Day, originally at Paramount park the event has grown from his idea to have special needs kids enjoy learning to fly kites to the event we see at Anderson park in the spring now. He had a barber shop on 38th for years where locals came to talk about the issues of the day. He will be missed in our community!

We are still in need of a twin mattress for the Baugh house (new or used) please contact Jane Harvey at 303-421-9111. Keep in mind we also collect other antique items for display at the museum. Donations or loans accepted. Remember the Wheat Ridge Historic Society when planning your estate!

Membership dues for the year are only $10 and just $100 for a lifetime membership. Join us in preserving the history of Wheat Ridge for future generations!!! Dues can be paid by cash or check in person at the Historic park during open hours, at Historic Society meetings or by mail. Send to P.O. Box 1833  Wheat Ridge, Co 80034

Looking forward to meeting you at our next meeting in March,

Janet "White" Bradford
