NATIONAL NIGHT OUT *rain or shine*

This is the first time Genesee will participate in National Night Out, a family-friendly event that brings neighborhoods together with their first responders and strengthens community bonds. This is a big event in many neighborhoods across the country and now internationally. Genesee Fire & Safety Committee is bringing this event to Genesee. Our Jeffco Sheriffs will participate with one of their specialty teams. Our own Genesee Fire Rescue will also join in. This is a chance for us to get together and enjoy our beautiful environs, friendly neighbors, and good food. Genesee Pub and BBQ is helping sponsor the event and will provide catered BBQ. We'll have limited beer and wine. But bring your own beverages for the evening.

In order to ensure we have enough food, please call the office (303-526-0284) or email: and let them know how many will attend. By July 27th.

Join us for a luau! Grass skirts and coconut bras if you dare! No RSVP is required but we ask everyone to BYOB and an appetizer or dessert to share. New residents are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Lost “Community News” email?
Each Thursday the Foundation staff sends a newsletter about happenings in our community. The newsletters have become popular. However, some residents ask why they don’t receive them. Here are two possible reasons and a solution for each:
  1. The Foundation Office does not have your email address.This is easily solved by sending an email to asking to be placed on the email list.
  2. If you have set up a “Promotions Tab” for Gmail then that’s where the Google robots place our newsletter, a place that is easily overlooked.This is also easily solved.Just click and drag the “Community News” from the Promotions list to the Priority tab. Subsequently, our newsletter will appear in your Priority inbox -- happy reading.
