BAKERY BUDDIES 
Quarterly - Thursday Mornings
Do you have a sweet tooth?  We are starting a Bakery Tour Group!  Perfect for people who really enjoy a good bakery.  The group can meet quarterly and carpool to different bakeries for coffee and treats. There are so many unique bakeries to explore and review.  We can each make recommendations and create a schedule for the upcoming year.  Our plan is for Thursday mornings, but we will be adaptive based on everyone’s schedule.  If you are interested, please contact Amy Larson at dinsp@msn.com.

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
Saturday, November 15 – 6:00 to 9:00 pm
Joan Quilico, Nancy Liberman, and Mary Sperling will be hosting Cellar Dwellers this month.   They have picked an Italian theme and will provide all the food for the evening.  They asked that you bring your own wine, beer or spirits.   This event is limited to 24 people.  Please RSVP to jfquilico@yahoo.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.  
 
 
COOKIE EXCHANGE
Date to be determined
Do you want to exchange cookies for the Holidays? We are looking to broaden this event with a Saturday brunch.  Those who are not exchanging cookies will organize the brunch.  Anyone interested in hosting this year? Call Connie Larkin at 518-852-9841 or email Connie@ElevateRealtyInc.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.
