Summer 2020 may be different than our typical summer here in Wheat Ridge, but we believe that we can stay safe and still have a lot of fun. This summer, Localworks is offering new ways to engage with your favorite programming, including virtual Fitness in the Park, socially distanced Cruiser Rides and a new and exciting version of RidgeFest. We are also thrilled to launch a few new programs that encourage individuals and families to celebrate Wheat Ridge and our local businesses. Here at Localworks, we are working hard to bring you unique ways to connect with local businesses and with your neighbors, and we hope you'll join us. 

- The Localworks Team

Home on the Ridge

Please join Localworks on social media for our Home on the Ridge campaign. Each week will have a theme (see link) and we’ll be sharing fun content that fits the theme, including interviews and tutorials from some of our awesome, local businesses.

We are also asking that you help us by participating! Take a photo or video that fits that week’s theme and share it with us. Tag @LocalworksWR on Facebook. If you’re using Instagram, share your photo or video on your story and tag @wearelocalworks, and we’ll share it to our story. Don’t forget to add #HomeOnTheRidge on whatever platform you use.

Community Coffee Break

Take a short break and virtually meet up with your friends and neighbors for a quick cup of coffee (or tea). Every Wednesday at 10am, Localworks will host a 15-minute Community Coffee Break. We’ll chat about a specific topic (see link), share resources and get some much needed social interaction. Below is the link to the registration form*. These community chats will be held weekly. Please join us as often as you’d like!

Everyone in the community is welcome to attend. Please help us spread the word about this program by sharing the registration page with friends and neighbors. See you on Wednesday!

Wednesdays ♦  10 - 10:15am
Zoom Video Call

*Due to privacy and safety concerns, Zoom requests that we do not post Zoom links on public web pages. Therefore, you must register for the event to get the link for the meetings.
