The AAUW Lakewood Branch enjoys diversions — one-time events that are entertaining, educational, and often “outside the box.” In the past we have experienced outdoor adventures, attended cultural and historical programs, and explored the world of chocolate.

2017 Diversions

Mark your calendar for Wednesday, June 29th for a tour and tasting at Balistreri Vineyards. Started by John Balistreri, they are a local family who make wines that are sulfite free and aged in oak barrels. They are located just east of I-25 on 66th Ave., fairly easy to get to. I had a wonderful lunch there, so we could do the tour and tasting and then stay for lunch. The tour and tasting price is $12.00 for a group of 8 or more. Lunch prices start at about $11.00, and they also have small plates. I think it would be a fun outing. I scheduled it at 12 pm. Call me for reservations or questions.

We still have tickets available for the Sunday, July 16th, 2 pm performance of “Annie” at the DCPA Stage Theater. The group tickets are $27. Please send a check made out to Margaret Greivel, 7174 W. Belmont Dr., Littleton 80123. We will make carpool arrangements closer to the date. The play is performed by PHAMALY, a theater group that is made up of people with various handicaps and disabilities. This would be a great play to bring grandchildren!
