Members of Evergreen Newcomers and Neighbors showed their appreciation to Darla Schwartz at a recent Happy Hour at The Wild Game. Darla has coordinated the "Serindipity" committee for a few years now, planning four to six outings for ENN members each month. From breakfasts to touring museums, she's ensured a wide variety of well-attended activities. Darla and her husband, Ben, have moved down the hill into a retirement community, so she's turning over the reins to several new somebodies to chair sub-groups.
Darla created the Serendipity leg of ENN many years ago. She says she was part of Newcomers for 18 or 19 of the 20 years she lived in Evergreen. One of her favorite activities happened around Halloween when members would travel to the Columbia Cemetery in Boulder for a Banjo Billy Bus Tour. People in costume would act the part of the famous and colorful people buried there; "Meet the Spirits" was the name of the biennial event.
ENN has approximately 30 activity groups – something for everyone. The group is a nice mix of people who have lived in Evergreen for a long time and those who are truly "newcomers." For more information about becoming a member, click here.
