CCEA Neighborhood Watch Program
Connie Larkin has volunteered to coordinate the CCEA Neighborhood Watch Program.  We could use some help and would love to have a volunteer for each block in Cherry Creek East.  If you are interested, please contact CCE.neighborhoodwatch@gmail.com.   It is important to relay suspicious activity to the Denver Police Nonemergency Number - 720-913-2000.  We can help them do their jobs by communicating this information.  They can’t do their jobs if they don’t have the information.
 
 
Cellar Dwellers
February Cellar Dwellers
Thank you to Dan Hutchinson for opening his house and hosting the first Leap Day celebration!  A wonderful evening shared by all. 
 
Next Event - Friday, March 27 – 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Susie Langford would like to invite you to her “Running of the Bulls” themed Cellar Dwellers party!  This famous Spanish event occurs in July, but Susie thought we should celebrate a little early.  Spanish wines are unique and delicious, and are a highlight of the festival.  Susie will provide the food.   She asks you bring a white or red wine from Spain. This event is limited to 20 people.  Please RSVP to Susie at slangford4@gmail.com.  
 
 
Cellar Dwellers Future Events
One of our best attended social gatherings in the neighborhood.  This is such a fun way to meet new people.  Please consider hosting this fun and easy neighborhood event.  Team up with someone!  Have others bring food!  Keep it simple!  There's really nothing to it.  Many of the same neighbors have been hosting year after year, and that's great; however, the fact is that we need new people to step up.  If you've been coming to Cellar Dwellers, enjoying the fun but hesitating to host, please jump in and give it a try.  We need you!  Please contact Jane Nero at janenero@comcast.net for further information.
 
 
Mahjong - Thursdays – 1:30 pm
Sue Ast coordinates the mahjong group.  Beginners, including newcomers who have never played before, are more than welcome to come join in the fun!  If you are interested in playing, please contact Sue Ast at sue@larrysueast.com.

Women's Wine and Dine - Monthly – First Wednesday of the month
We meet on the first Wednesday of the month and try restaurants in the area.  This is a great way for the women from the neighborhood to meet and mingle with one another.  Because this event has been so successful, it is open to CCE residents only.  Typically, we start at 5:30, so we can take advantage of the happy hour, if the restaurant offers it.  Attendance is sometimes limited, due to restaurant restrictions.
