What more could you ask for?
I promise, you will have a blast at this Evening of Engagement event. Matthew Gurnsey is an amazing musician and a deeply wacky guy. After all, he goes by the name The Kilted Man! Please join us and get 2018 off to a fun and fabulous start.

Okay, yes. You may not be thinking much about your heirs at this point. However, replace “heirs” with “parent”, “significant other”, or “friends.” You never know when something might happen…an accident, a wild fire, a flood, an alien invasion…and the ability to grab a notebook filled with all of your important details suddenly becomes important. Do you want to leave the deletion of you browser history to chance? Attend this class, build a Master List Notebook, and maybe even win a Fit Bit. You can’t lose! Please RSVP to 970-479-2186 or via email at email@example.com to ensure adequate supplies are available and to be entered into a drawing for a new Fit Bit!
JANUARY IS… ALL ABOUT THE BOOKS

Check out a few of these books for free at Vail Public Library before you pony up the 10 dollars to see it in the story and make up your own mind; is the book always better?
