Need a truly GREAT gift for Christmas giving?

Loveland 365 - the perfect gift!

Now that the book - Loveland 365 - has been in people's hands and homes, they are telling us how they must sit down, how they take their time going page by page. They tell us they are delighted to see places they love and people they know. We often hear, "I wish I'd ordered one. My mom (or brother or teacher) would love that for Christmas."

The books are still available through Alternatives to Violence and Habitat for Humanity. Don't delay! You will have a limited edition gift to give someone special ... and your purchase will benefit a local non-profit.

Alternatives to Violence    Call: 669-5150 (closed Fridays)

NCBR article outlines the Loveland 365 challenge

March 16th, 2011 by Maryjo Morgan

The current edition of the Northern Colorado Business Report ran a great story about Loveland 365. In it, Tracee Sioux wote about the issues the presale paradigm presents to the Loveland 365 team.

The community support the project has received is fabulous!  We are certain, when people see the book and hold it in their hands, everyone will wish they'd ordered their copy before the deadline!

There is still time to place orders. Even more nonprofits have come on board, so finding and donating the proceeds from your book purchase to your favorite charity is easier than ever.

Thanks, Tracee Sioux and NCBR!

Loveland Receives Recognition from US Dept. of Veterans Affairs

Veterans Day in Loveland means listening for the tolling of the bell that makes its reverent tour of town during the chilly early morning hours.  Other celebrations are well attended, and our parade grows each year.

It is a great pleasure to post this letter of recognition from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, which designates Loveland as a Regional Site for the observance of Veterans Day 2010.

Loveland is among a mere 45 cities in the NATION to receive this kind of nod!

Many thanks to Tony DuMosch, Veterans Day Chairman and the many Veterans and Volunteers who make this all happen every year.

DuMosch says, "This is something Loveland can be proud of because of people like you and me make it happen. Thank you for your support as we gear up for this years 2010 Veterans Day and special tribute to the Korean War era Veterans."

Here is a sampling of a typical Veterans Day activities in Loveland:

0400: Bell ringers hit the streets

0600: Posting of Flags of the fallen at Loveland Cemetery

0600: Posting of Colors Downtown Loveland

0600: OPEN FREE to public the Associated Vets Club @ 305 Cleveland Ave. View the military history of local veterans and more

0600-0900: Breakfast @ Vets Club

0700: Table displays & information for the public in Vets Club including Operation Military Kids, American Legion, US Army, US Navy, Freedom Car, and more

1111: Parade starts and ends at Dwayne Webster Veterans Park (Veterans Memorial site)

So watch the paper for listings of this year's Veterans Day activities.

Loveland's Parrotheads - sponsored by the Big Thompson Rotary Club -   gathered for fun and sun at the Flip-Flop Fun-Raiser last week to raise $ for Boys & Girls Clubs of Larimer County.  You'll see some familiar faces here on Loveland 365's Facebook Fan Page.  It looks like they brought some of "the islands" to Loveland for this event.  Notice their fine feathered friends in some of the photos - shoulders make good perches!

The Rotary's interest in BGCLC is just one of the reasons Loveland is such a good place to be.  Citizens pitch in to support non-profits and give everyone attending the event a great evening.  Kudos to the Big Thompson Rotary!

Our model recycling program

July 19th, 2010 by Maryjo Morgan

Bob McDonnell posted about a longtime city of Loveland employee Bruce Philbrick leaving Loveland for Portland.

Bruce has been in charge of the City of Loveland’s recycling program for a number of years.  The City of Loveland’s web site says Bruce’s job title is Solid Waste Superintendent, but he has been so much more - a spokesperson and strong supporter of recycling here in our city.  He has implemented upgrades and expansions in the recycling program, and has helped other municipalities learn the ins and outs of such a comprehensive program.  Way to go, Bruce.

We send Bruce off with best wishes and thanks for a job well done.
