Community Update 8/17/17


ON AUGUST 17TH, 1590...

Roanoke Colony is found deserted

It's a mystery that has intrigued Americans for centuries: What happened to the lost colonists of North Carolina's Roanoke Island? (See "America's Lost Colony."). The settlers, who arrived in 1587, disappeared in 1590, leaving behind only two clues: the words "Croatoan" carved into a fort's gatepost and "Cro" etched into a tree.

**Pools have switched to modified hours beginning August 15th.

Next Artist showing through September at Vista Clubhouse – Anna Mead
A native West Virginian, Anna Marie Mead has made Colorado home for over 40 years where she makes creating art part of her everyday life. As a professional artist, she has a studio in Denver’s Santa Fe Arts District. This studio is located at the BitFactory (#105), and here she has enjoyed creating as well as exhibiting her paintings in the gallery.
Most recently she had an exciting solo show “Transitions” in the BitFactory Gallery. This show is very close to Anna Marie’s heart as she is also transitioning. In the future, she is looking forward to a team show with fellow jewelry artist Julie Sims. These two ladies are looking forward to a great collaboration of jewels and jewel like paintings.

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 signing up online at www 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.
