Happy 2018!!! We finally received SNOW! Not much but we will take it. Bring your leftover fruitcake to be murdered, I mean tossed for the Great Fruitcake Toss on Saturday, January 27th, from 1-3pm, including a Bake Off at Memorial Park. The event is FREE to attend. For more info click HERE. The Manitou Springs Heritage Center will be open during the event to give you a place to warm up and snack on goodies. Located at 517 Manitou Ave, just South of Memorial Park.
The Canon Avenue Flood Gates has become a hot topic because of FEMA red tape. The gates are up but they are just for "show" until we pay FEMA a ransom. Just kidding! The flood map needs some tweaking and then Canon Avenue will be ready for our surfing pleasure without property damage. Speaking of water, a huge thank you goes out to our Water Department: Ronnie Huery, Mike Deaguero, Star Sterling, and Rick Blundell. Even though we didn't get snow lately, we were hit with zero temps. Our Water Team led a silent war that resulted in neighborhoods without water.
We recap the movement for people that need to move out of Manitou and Colorado. We warned them they would be miserable. WE TOLD YOU SO! Well, we might be getting Steve and Michele back from North Carolina. Many know them as the couple who ran the Celtic Show at KRCC. Yeah Us!! Thank you to The Bedlam Boys for our into music and to John Dartnel for your tunes. So, get to Manitou and toss your fruitcake were you will be among your kind.
