"Get the Point": Secrets of pre-colonial history unlocked by Forest Service Archaeologist Abe Thompson
Stenzel Community Room
Get the Point…. Come help Forest Service archaeologist Abe Thompson unlock some secrets of pre-colonial history on our mountain! If you have points, scrapers, awls, or other stone tools found on your land that you want identified, bring them to the library on August 27. Mr. Thompson will probably be able to tell you who made it, when, and where it came from. Mr. Thompson will also give us a quick overview of migrations around the Red Feather Lakes area and update us on recent findings in Larimer County and the North American continent, for example new findings in Texas have pushed the dates of human habitation in the Americas back to at least 15,500 years ago, predating the time when movement across the land bridge would have been possible due to glaciations. Clovis sites, like the one excavated at Soapstone Open Space date back approximately 13,000 years.

2-3:30 Poetry Workshop and Reading
Stenzel Community Room
Presented at 2pm by several poets living in the Denver area. Description: Poetry is often both a solitary and communal art, it requires the intimate space from which one writes and the public space of human to human interaction. In this two-part program, we will engage both of these aspects. In the beginning of class, we will explore innovative processes of composing and thinking about poems through writing exercises. After this, we will present our own work and have an open discussion and Q&A time. Each section will take 45 minutes, so the program should last around 1.5 hours. Sommer Browning is the author of Either Way I'm Celebrating (Birds, LLC; 2011), a collection of poetry and comics, and three chapbooks. With Tony Mancus, she co-founded Flying Guillotine Press. Mathias Svalina is the author of one book of poetry, Destruction Myth (CSU Poetry Center) & one book of prose, I Am A Very Productive Entrepreneur (Mud Luscious). With Zachary Schomburg & Alisa Heinzman, he co-edits Octopus Magazine & Octopus Books. Julia Cohen is pursuing a PhD in Poetry at the University of Denver. These poems are from Triggermoon Triggermoon (Black Lawrence Press, 2011). She is the managing editor of The Denver Quarterly and a co-editor of the small journal Saltgrass.

From her diagnosis with Alzheimer's until her death, Wayne and Terry Baltz were caregivers and advocates for Terry’s mother.

But it proved to be only part of the truth, overlooking entirely the love and joy and deepening of relationship the three experienced, not only in spite of but often as a direct result of the illness. Come hear the authors' story of their experiences over four amazing years. They can also discuss the memoir writing process that resulted in their Colorado Book Award Finalist Memoir, "Fierce Blessing: A Journey into Alzheimer's, Compassion, and the Joy of Being."

Public hearing for library applying for USDA grant
Stenzel Community Room
Red Feather Lakes Library is applying for a USDA Rural Community grant to ensure the library meets state codes and can remain open to serve as a vital part of our small community. Even though our water system underwent an upgrade in 2010, the state has changed their standards again to where we will be in violation if we do not take corrective measures. We need a Turbidimeter, a chart reader for turbidity levels, a new chlorinator, a small reverse osmosis unit to address complaints about the smell and taste of chlorine in our water and to re-plumb our water system. We also need to address other maintenance issues that are not as pressing as the water issue but still need attention. For example: we need to replace our T12 light fixtures to a newer model because the light bulbs are no longer manufactured, make our lower shelves more accessible to the physically challenged, and to insulate our crawl space to meet energy efficiency standards. The meeting is open for the public to make comments about the grant.

Ruth's Art Gallery: Timi Burdette temari
Historically, temari were constructed from the remnants of old kimonos. Pieces of silk fabric would be wadded up to form a ball, and then the wad would be wrapped with strips of fabric. As time passed, traditional temari became an art, with the functional stitching becoming more decorative and detailed, until the balls displayed intricate embroidery. With the introduction of rubber to Japan, the balls went from play toys to art objects, although mothers still make them for their children. Temari became an art and craft of the Japanese upper class and aristocracy, and noble women competed in creating increasingly beautiful and intricate objects.[
