Opportunity Village Saturday of Service Aug. 23rd

Hi Everyone! I can't believe summer is coming to an end and the holidays are just around the corner! Opportunity Village has been having several Saturday's of Service events to get their place all ready for the new HallOVeen and of course, one of A.O.K.'s favorite, Magical Forest festivities.

Since 1954, Opportunity Village is a 100% local charity that serves people with intellectual disabilities to improve the quality of their lives and the lives of their families.  Proceeds from this extraordinary event go directly to support programs and services for the 3,000 people with disabilities served every year.

Opportunity Village needs volunteers to come help with indoor and outdoor projects on August 23rd 8AM-12PM. Please come comfortably dressed in clothes you don't mind getting a little dirty and depending on what projects you sign up for the day of, get a little paint on them.

Families are welcome to come, too. Anyone under the age of 18 needs to be supervised by an adult. They do have painting projects for families with young kids. so please make it a family activity if you want to. I saw the kids got to the ride the train, too. Not sure if they do that every week but I thought that was a nice gesture and the kids loved it! OV also will have cold water for everyone and all supplies are already there for any of their projects.

Please remember to RSVP with integrity. See you there!

      I haven't had a chance to go out this year so I am not sure of the exact projects. Last year we hung lights, cut and painted props for HallOVeen.

    I signed up but had to cancel. My son's high school marching band is having a car wash fund raiser at the Burger King on Durango up by Centennial from 8-noon. If anyone is interested in helping out a great program, please swing by and get a car wash for a donation. The kids will be working hard to earn the community's support.
