Fall has arrived with the crisp cool nights and changes in the weather heralding the coming of winter. I am still harvesting my tomato crop and hope to have some for our Produce Exchange/Sale at our upcoming Second Saturday - October festival. We hope to have more crafters join us this year to share their knowledge of hand made goods. Do you have a craft hobby please join us to share your talent! Hopefully Mother Nature will cooperate for a nice fall day. I look forward to meeting some old friends and new. 

The Wheat Ridge Historical Society meeting will be on the Second TuesdayOctober 10th at 7pm at the Red Brick Museum. We will be finalizing details on the upcoming Apple Cider Day and discussing more about our 5 year plan for the Society. We hope you can join us as volunteers are needed for our event!!!
