A great source of information about current events, activities, opinions, want ads, etc. is the Arvada Press. Volume 3, Issue 8 has some really great real estate articles on buying, selling and lending in real estate. This same edition has an extensive list of things to see, do and experience. Of particular interest to me is the Arvada Rotary Peach Sale since you just can’t beat Palisade peaches. Every year I buy two cases and fuss and fume as I dunk, peel, slice, add fruit fresh and freeze. However, come the winter holidays, my family and I really enjoy all the frozen “fresh” peaches in pies and cobblers.
Arvada also has small secret surprises waiting for you. One of them is in Meadowglen where you find a nice Colorado size lake with homes around the walking path that encircles it. I happen to know of one on 81st Drive that has the most relaxing, serene view of that lake that lets all your cares just seep out your toes and helps you prepare to face the next days new challenges. This particular home has a lovely sun room that works for you summer or winter. There have been many winter nights I have sat on that porch with my feet watching the snow fall and done absolutely nothing. Try it. You’ll like it.
