It Takes a Village...

Last week's Alpine Community Center open House was a joyous and wonderful success. Looking around at the diversity of people and seeing old friendships deepen and new ones being formed gave me a warm feeling and a sense of pride in being part of this community.  If you haven't had a chance to watch the video about the Open House that Lonnie and Alison produced, here's that link again.
