The film is generating a lot of buzz in the city. We have received a request from KOSI, KALC, & KQMT Radio for an interview, and will update everyone on the time and date.

Group uses video to protest land swap between city, DPS
By Jeremy Meyer The Denver Post
A group fighting a land swap in southeastern Denver between the city and Denver Public Schools produced a slick video to argue the case that now awaits a decision by the Court of Appeals.
The Friends of Denver Parks want to stop the swap that was approved by City Council to give DPS city owned property near Hampden Heights to build a school in exchange for a downtown DPS building that will be used as a domestic violence resource center.

Hootenanny Fundraiser a BIG SUCCESS!!

Dear Friends of Denver Parks,

Thank You   Thank You   Thank you

For your support of the “Hootenanny Good Time” Gala on Saturday night!  We had a great evening among friends, with dinner, dancing, a picture slide show, legal updates, a special version of “This Land is Our Land” by Larry Ambrose (words available here), and great optimism for our challenge.  Thanks to you, we have the funds to carry on the legal battle for some time.

The Court of Appeals has promised a decision by January 1. Stay tuned for all of the happenings.  When we know something, you will know it, too.

KC Keefer called me one day and said, I want to help Friends of Denver Parks and I am a videographer.  I said sure, but was unprepared for the amazing quality and talent of KC’s film work.  This is a taste, he hopes to finish the editing and release the final copy next week.  See “Hampden Height Heist” link below.   Just shows Friends of Denver Parks will not be treading water any time soon.  Also we have received news that a very important personage is considering joining/contributing to Friends of Denver Parks.  We will have more news after the elections in this area.  When you start out on an adventure such as ours, then you never know who you will meet along the way.

Renee- President
