This year, the Localworks team has been busy bringing our community fun and safe programming. Meanwhile, our Board of Directors has been hard at work finalizing our new strategic plan. If you want to learn more about our 2020 accomplishments and our new strategic plan, save the date for our Annual Meeting on Thursday, November 12. Stay tuned for more details.

Wheat Ridge Scavenger Hunt
In August, Localworks coordinated the 2020 Wheat Ridge Scavenger Hunt. To complete this photo scavenger hunt, participants explored Wheat Ridge and found some really neat stuff, including public art, murals, urban farms, great local businesses and more! A big thank you to all of the participants. If you want to explore the submitted photos, follow the link below.
RidgeFest Deconstructed was a blast! A huge thank you to everyone who joined us, to our amazing volunteers, to the artists who shared their talents, to the bands who shared their amazing music, and to all of the local organizations and businesses (see below) that helped make this event possible.

Costumes and Pumpkins and Scarecrows… OH MY!
This year to help our community celebrate Halloween, Localworks is hosting several contests — an individual costume contest, a family/group costume contest, a pumpkin carving contest, and a scarecrow decorating contest. All entries need to be family-friendly. Please submit a photo of your entry by Tuesday, October 27 at 5pm to firstname.lastname@example.org. Localworks will post all photos on our Facebook, and the community will vote for their favorite. Winners will receive a gift card to a local business.
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.
Join the Wheat Ridge Chamber of Commerce for their Wine Walk on Saturday, September 26. Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased online or at the event. Registration gets you wine tastings at all participating business locations.
