Good News Friday!

Photo fun for Friday.

In the last week of October, members of the student council at Fall River Elementary School in Longmont held a fundraiser to help Imagine! recover from the recent flooding that damaged many of our homes. The fundraiser brought in $494.11! Wow! Thanks to all the students and teachers who participated! Pictured above, Imagine! PR Director Fred Hobbs accepts the check from student council treasurer Mason while Principal Dr. Jennifer Guthals looks on.

Fall River Elementary rocks!

In this photo, Elizabeth Hill, Imagine!'s Volunteer Coordinator, and Chris Skultety, from the The Kiwanis Club Of Longmont, show off some of the 58 wooden toys handcrafted by the Club and donated to Imagine! as part of the Club's Craft Toys for Kids Project. Most of the toys will become a part of Imagine!'s Gift Giving Drive, while four of the toys will be featured in the Imagine! Celebration's silent auction on January 24, 2014.

In this picture, Imagine!’s CORE/Labor Source staff member Andy (left) and Zach, CORE/Labor Source class participant, are showing off their healthy muscles at a community activity, “Sports and Games,” which takes place at the Louisville Recreation Center. That class focuses on movement, exercise, learning and playing different sports, and having fun.

If you know Loren, who lives in Imagine!’s Charles Family SmartHome in Longmont, you know he loves music. The photo above is of Loren in an Imagine! CORE/Labor Source music class with Amanda Byrant, who is a Neurologic Music Therapist and service provider for Imagine!. The music class is held in the Music Discovery Garden at the Colorado Music Festival & Center for Musical Arts. The instrument that Loren and Amanda are playing is one of many high quality, durable musical instruments designed by Grammy Award winning musician Richard Cooke, the founder of Freenotes Harmony Park. Freenotes are built to maintain pure and soothing tones through years of rigorous play and exposure to the elements of nature, and are ideal for musical beginners and experts alike. The new Music Discovery Garden has a collection of large, outdoor, interactive percussion instruments that include “Contrabass Chimes,” “The Swirl,” the “Flying Amadinda,” and three “WeeNotes.” These exciting outdoor instruments have been installed on the northwest corner of the Center, which invites you to come over anytime and give their new outdoor instruments a try.
