~IMPORTANT FOR THIS COMING TUESDAY
This week, Tues, Nov 20, we will be REHEARSING DOWNTOWN at Scottish Rites Masonic Consistory, 1370 Grant Street, Denver.
DIRECTIONS: The Consistory is located on the southeast corner of Grant and 14th, catty-corner from the Colorado State Capitol Building on the northwest corner of Grant & 14th. With the exception of Colfax, most streets are ONE WAY. The area is a neighborly mix of business and residential; parking is allowed on most streets but finding a space may be difficult.
We have permission to use the public lot on the northeast corner of Logan and 14th (one block east of the Consistory) and another on the southwest corner of Pennsylvania and 14th (two blocks east of the Consistory). The lots are free BUT: any cars left in either lot after 6 AM WILL BE TOWED AT OWNER'S EXPENSE Ė NO EXCEPTIONS!!! Also, DO NOT park behind the Consistory or in the Church lot across the street!! Also, DO NOT park in the Salvation Army lot - they will ticket and tow your car!
DID YOU READ THE ABOVE PARAGRAPH VERY VERY CAREFULLY? IF NOT, YOUR CAR COULD BE TOWED!
- From North or South of Denver: Take I-25 to the Colfax East exit. Travel east several blocks to Grant Street (the State Capitol will be on your right). Turn right (south) on Grant (it's one way, you can't go north). You'll see the Consistory or the southeast corner of Grant and 14th (one block). Turn left on 14th to parking lot on northeast corner of Logan and 14th. (If you miss the turn on 14th, go south on Grant to 12th, turn left/east one block to Logan, turn left/north two blocks to 14th.)
- From Aurora and Southeast suburbs: Take Parker Road/Leetsdale to Colorado Blvd. Turn right/north on Colorado, then left (west) on 1st Avenue which will take you past Cherry Creek Shopping Center. Stay on First past University Blvd. where First becomes Speer Blvd. Continue on Speer to Logan (it's just after Pennsylvania) and there's a traffic light at this intersection. Turn right/north on Logan to 14th and park in the public lot on the northeast corner. Walk west on 14th one block to the Consistory.
- From Southwest and West suburbs: Take Santa Fe north to 14th Street. Turn right (east). You'll pass the Consistory at Grant (on the right). Proceed to Logan and park in the public lot on the northeast corner. Walk one block west back to the Consistory.
- Enter the Consistory through the glass doors. Locate elevator (or stairs) and go one floor down to the dining room.
Katie lives in this neighborhood and is scouting a place for us to gather/eat/drink/socialize after rehearsals.
~SCHEDULE CORRECTION: There will be NO rehearsal on Tuesday, November 27. Instead, we will have rehearsal on THURSDAY, Nov 29 AT SOUTH HIGH SCHOOL at 6:30.

Itís Beginning to Look...
"LIFE IS JUST A BOWL OF TICKETS..." "A TICKET HERE, A TICKET THERE..." "I GOT A TICKET, YOU GOT A TICKET, ALL GOD'S CHILDREN GOT TICKETS!" "WHO WILL BUY THIS WONDERFUL TICKET?" Ad nauseum...Not feeling too clever today, but still trying to make my point and be encouraging to us all. Our Christmas Show is going to be so special; let's make sure plenty of people have the opportunity to find that out for themselves!
TICKET TAKERS still NEEDED: I think I have one ticket taker for each show, but need someone to work with them so that there are two at the table for each performance. I've found willing husbands to usher the reserved section. Thanks all!
Will Call Ticket Info: If you know that you will have family, friends, associates who will be picking up tickets the day of the show at "will call," we need to know about it before the day of the performances. Please talk to me (Linn) and I will make sure the tickets you request get put in the names of those folks, placed in an envelope and are at the ticket table the day of the performance. Easier for me to handle this than to take up the time of the section ticket people.
Also, Josie Robinson has volunteered to help with the Baritone section so if Therese isn't available, talk to Josie.
See you Down Town on Tuesday!" Linn Pickard

We want to make this book good to sell - and that means PLENTY of recipes. This can be a GREAT money maker. They practically sell themselves. Please - EVERY MEMBER should give at least ONE RECIPE!

This can be a shared position - 1 to 150 people - all are welcome! We can set up a working shift. Please contact Kelly if you can help. KellyLCowan@home.com or 303-471-1403.
