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  
Thank you to Cecilia Ortega Lagos for hosting a wonderful Cellar Dwellers event in August.  We had great weather and enjoyed being on the rooftop for a spectacular view.  Great party, great food and great friends – all in one evening. 
 
 
CELLAR DWELLERS
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28 – 6:30 - 10:00 pm
Connie and Joe Larkin are hosting our next Cellar Dwellers.  They will open their house and courtyard, so dress comfortably.  They ask guests to bring appetizer, dessert or wine.  There is no theme this month other than to have a hang-out and have a good time.  Please RSVP to Connie@elevaterealtyinc.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.
 
 
CHERRY CREEK EAST SINGLES - October
This is a great way to meet other singles in our neighborhood.  Charlie Hogan has graciously agreed to host in October at his home.   Details will be emailed directly to the members.   If you are interested in joining this group, please contact Janis Cooper at jccoop155@aol.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. If interested, please contact Amy Larson at dinsp@msn.com.
