Hello All

I wanted to be sure that this got to you ASAP with the Parade only 4 days away.

If you want to walk or ride this parade . . . I can tell you that it is a true family event,

with a lot of great floats, civic groups and a big crowd.

The parade is a major attraction and part of a full day of Rodeo and Carnival.

I can’t make it – hosting a family gig here in Commerce City.

If you have the morning open  . . . this is a great time.  Check out Art’s e-mail and

attachment for the full story.

Regards

Michael Stoffler, President

I miss Ronald Reagan

Dknute rockne all american herooors open at 5:30pm, greeting, prayer & the Pledge of Allegiance  begins at 6:00pm, dinner served at 6:15pm, grab a bag of popcorn to munch on as we watch The Gipper at 7:00pm, and finish up the night with dessert at 8:40pm and head home at 9:00pm.

We’re meeting in central Denver at CADA (Colorado Auto Dealers Association), 290 East Speer Blvd, Denver, CO, 80203.  Admission is $20 for members and $25 for non-members.  You can buy your tickets on our web site: http://www.reaganclubco.com/meeting-dues/ or pay at the door.

“I’ve decided to take up coaching as my life work,” Knute Rockne says. Coach he does, revolutionizing football with his strategies, winning close to 90 percent of his games, and helping establish the University of Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish as a gridiron powerhouse. But victories alone do not mean success to Rockne. He wants to shape his players into responsible and honorable men. This famed sports biopic combines a passion for the game (and footage of actual Notre Dame contests) with two superb performances: Pat O’Brien in the title role and Ronald Reagan as George Gipp, the gifted but doomed halfback whose deathbed plea is “win just one for the Gipper.” The line remains one of cinema’s most memorable. And for the rest of his life, Reagan would often be called the Gipper.

CADA is located on the Southwest corner of Grant and Speer Blvd; the two-story ivory colored building that looks like a small mansion. Parking is available on the south side of the building or on the street.

Directions from I-25 North:
Take I-25 south to the Speer Blvd. South exit. Continue on Speer Blvd. South going east. You will take Speer Blvd Southeast to Grant Street and make a right on Grant. CADA is located on the southwest corner of Grant and Speer. (While traveling east on Speer you will pass through a short tunnel, Grant is the first street right after you exit the tunnel; begin moving over the right-hand lane as quickly as possible after you exit the tunnel)

Directions from I-25 South:
Take I-25 south to the Broadway/Lincoln Ave. exit. Go north on Lincoln to Speer Blvd. Make a right on 4th Street, and turn left into the parking lot BEFORE you reach Grant Street (you will see the Red Cross trucks in the parking lot).

Directions from 6th avenue:
Take 6th Avenue East to Speer Blvd. Go right on Speer Blvd. Make a right on Grant Street. (Grant is about 2 blocks up).

The Colorado governor’s race features four Republicans vying for a chance to try to unseat the Democratic incumbent, .

Running in the June 24 GOP primary are former congressmen  and , Secretary of State and former Senate minority leader . Here are their profiles, which were published this week:

Bob Beauprez: His vision of the future includes putting the past behind him. Story and videos, including a discussion of his faith and the death penalty, and standing at the rear end of a horse in 2006.

Scott Gessler: The honey badger has walked on the wild side of partisan politics. Story and videos, including what he sees as his achievements in office and why he believes the state ethics commission is corrupt.

Mike Kopp: The former state Senate minority leaders pray for another upset. Story and videos, including his take on his fundraising numbers and concerns over the legalization of marijuana.

Tom Tancredo: The immigration firebrand and unconventional candidate tries again for governor. Story and videos, including his belief that he’ll get just an many — if not more — Latino votes than his GOP counterparts and why he voted for a banking bailout.
