From Cherry Creek East Association: 
Hi, CCEA Member - reaching out to ask for your help! 
 
CCEA has over 140 individual and business members. Your membership, involvement and support have benefited CCEA’s ability to advance the mission we all care deeply about - making Cherry Creek East a great place to live and work. 
 
There are challenges for this coming year (zoning changes, safety, transport) and we need more active members to influence decisions.  There are also some great social activities and events in the planning stages. I am reaching out to ask for ideas and volunteers to help increase our active membership number and involvement. 
 
If you would like to get involved in helping our community and serve on the membership committee, contact at members@cherrycreekeast.org; or Michael Maclauchlan@gmail.com; or you can call or text my cell phone at 303-388-4822.

Advice per the sanctuary:   Prepare for the weather.  Wear comfortable shoes, and bring a jacket.  The wind is always a little stronger on the walkway than it is on the ground.  Bring hats, sunscreen, and sunglasses.

There is a café and group seating areas if you choose to bring your own lunch.
 
Please RSVP only to Janis and let me know if you can drive others.
