Brazen bunny saunters onto the screen

Huntsman Elmer J. Fudd meets "that pesky wabbit" for the first time in 'A Wild Hare,' an animated short subject from Warner Bros. What's up, Doc? For Bugs Bunny, it'll be crazy popularity, decades of movie releases, an Oscar win, and a TV compilation show that runs for 40 years.

Effective at 6:00 p.m. today, June 29, 2017, the Jefferson County Sheriff will implement temporary Stage 1 Fire Restrictions for portions of Jefferson County. The restrictions apply to the areas west of Highway 93, west of C-470, and south and west of the intersection of CO 121 (Wadsworth) and C-470 to the Platte River. See more details

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.

Vista Clubhouse 5:30-8:30 p.m.

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.
We had some burgers and brats left over from Trash Mash that we froze. We will have them thawed and the grill will be hot - first come, first served.
