EXPLORERS

Jon Kedrowski: Sleeping on the Summits – April 6

In 2011, Dr. Jon Kedrowski became the first person to camp and spend the night on the top of Colorado’s 55 official 14ers (peaks over 14,000′). He achieved the feat from June 23 to September 28, 2011, a stretch of only 95 days from start to finish. In 2012, Dr. Kedrowski successfully climbed Mount Everest on May 26. His story has been chronicled extensively as he witnessed and survived the worst tragedy on Everest since the 1996 disaster. Watch the Fox31 news feature on the 2012 Mount Everest tragedy here and then join Dr. Kedrowski for an exciting look at climbing Colorado’s 14ers, visiting the world’s largest peaks and more. Thursday, April 6. 7:00 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Buy tickets online.

HISTORY

Colorado Women in the Progressive Era – April 12

Colorado women achieved the right to vote in 1893, decades ahead of the 19th Amendment of 1920. While Colorado was second to Wyoming, it was the first state to win women’s suffrage by a popular vote. Early voting rights enabled Colorado women to champion many other social causes including child welfare and labor rights. Join Dr. Tom Thomas to learn about the diverse cast of influential women in Colorado during the Progressive Era (1890-1920), including Margaret Tobin “Molly” Brown and Baby Doe Tabor, and this fascinating piece of first-wave feminism in the history of the American West. Wednesday, April 12. 7:00 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Buy tickets online.

PLANNED GIVING

Your Life, Your Legacy – April 3

Most people make financial plans for the future—planning college funds, vacation, retirement, healthcare—but very few like to think about death, let alone plan for it. Discussing one’s mortality is an extremely uncomfortable topic, but one that should be discussed and planned for well in advance.

By pre-planning your funeral and final legacy wishes, you enable your family to make important financial decisions and fulfill your final requests because you made them known. Join Matt Fox, general manager of Crist Mortuary & Mountain View Memorial Park for an afternoon conversation on the value of pre-arranging your final wishes as a gift to surviving family members. Monday, April 3. 2:00 – 3:00 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Coffee and cookies will be served.
Please RSVP here.
