The Soul of Parker
The word “soul” comes to mind every time I step onto Mainstreet. Defined as the essence and embodiment of something, soul is what I see and feel in the faces and places of downtown Parker and, I suspect, the reason so many of us love it here.
It was that “soul” that made it so fun and gratifying to work with many of you in putting together the November issue! Together with our fearless leader Andy Manz (also publisher for Lifestyles Publication in Boulder, Cherry Creek and Highlands Ranch) and the whole Lifestyles team, we’re so thrilled to be starting with you all in the most promising month of November as we head into the holiday season.
This month’s dual theme is “Giving Back” and “Winter Sports Preview,” and we didn’t have to look far beyond Mainstreet to find a whole lot of both. From our story about Anne Barrington’s burgeoning Charity Happy Hour Series (title) that’s shining a light on Parker’s stellar community service organizations and the 2016 Winter Reading list (reading is a winter sport, right?) brought to us by the library during their big move, to the exciting news about the soon-to-open Discovery Park, we enjoyed every minute of putting this month’s issue together. We hope you’ll enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed creating it. Let’s do this thing!
