I have noticed that change is in the air. My dentist of 20 years has decided to retire right in the middle of another dental crisis for my mouth.  My favorite knitting magazine is no longer being published.  Plastic straws are being withdrawn from our culture for the sake of the environment.  I want to stamp…

As you can see from the picture, our tree, our symbol of our abundance and growth, is really growing. It gained another inch in the last month!  Our attendance has increased to the highest average in many years.

CSL Boulder Valley has a tag line — “Love Lives Here” — but it is more than our slogan. We want everyone who comes in contact with our community to feel our love and support. Even if a visitor comes only once, they know that we are here if and when they need us. As…

Traditionally, our taxable income was determined by our marital status, family size and whether we used the…

Catherine Snider, who has been an exceptional Treasurer for two years, has moved up to President of the Board. As Vice-President, I support…
