On January 25th we had our inaugural VIP Membership Party to celebrate our members and VIP punch card program that we launched in 2012 to encourage members to be involved with WiD. This is a rewards program available to WiD members only; punches are granted at events and collected at the end of the year.
We were floored with donations to give away to lucky participates and new members that joined that night. We had around 150 people attend to enjoy cocktails, appetizers, music, a photobooth, and shop tours of Von Design. Plenty of fun was had as many new connections were made and old ones reunited. Due to the overwhelming positive feedback and great turnout we have decided to make this an annual event!

We hope you continue to join us!
Several months ago, I asked my friend Kristin, “Why are women (and men) joining Women in Design?” The first phrase was, “WiD is different. It focuses on the creation of community.” WiD is heading into its 8th year of creating community and our fourth year as a non-profit. As with all youth, we are becoming sturdier and stronger on the legs of women who have supported and served the organization. As a result, this year our theme is ‘Community Building/Building Community’…..thank you, Kristin!

Our volunteers woke up bright and early the morning of November 3rd and met at the Taxi development parking lot to carpool up to Kittredge, a small community about 20 minutes west of Morrison. We were greeted by the Blue Spruce Habitat Construction Manager, Stephen Colella, who was holding a very long To-Do List. Our ladies got busy checking off items on the list. The site is situated on a steep slope and one of the tasks was to carry SIP panels down to the northern low end of the duplex to begin installing them. It’s hard enough to balance and walk down that slope but carrying something bulky and heavy makes that even more fun. Those who weren’t busy hauling were put to work hammering, seeding, cutting and drilling. There was no shortage of things to do and we had a lot of fun doing it! The home owners of the duplex units came to the site to finalize their carpet selections and were able to jump in and help with some of the SIP erection.

A big thank you to all of those that bared the rain on Wednesday and joined us for our Fall Oktoberfest Networking Hour at the Prost Brewing Company that opened late this summer.
Once everyone got settled in and grabbed a beverage we had a tour of the brewery where all the magic happens. Prost focuses on German lagers which are rare to Denver breweries. This brewing takes longer and they use two large copper kettles to begin the brewing process, which were shipped over here from Germany to give that authentic German taste to all their beers. It was quite interesting to talk to the owner of the brewery as he was highly involved in the construction and starting up of this brewery. After the tour WiD members mingled around the equipment and enjoyed their freshly brewed beers.

FREE MATERIALS for upcycling…courtesy of ZeroLandfill Denver. 2 Days Only!
You will be received with a smile and sleep better at night!
If that isn’t enough to get a creative soul interested to learn more, perhaps this will help:
- ZeroLandfill is a national initiative that is committed to reducing pressure on local landfill capacity specifically targeting Architecture, Engineering and Interior Design firms and their material samples.
- In their initial effort this past Spring, the local chapter, ZeroLandfill Denver, diverted 9000 pounds of waste from landfills. WOW!
- In their second effort, (happening now) the materials have already been collected and just need to be picked up for upcycling.
- Hundreds of pounds of ceramic tiles, carpet samples, binders, fabric, etc. are waiting to be claimed and have their lives extended so they don’t unnecessarily head off to the landfill.
The pickup location is Design Materials Will Call, 10498 East 49th Avenue, Denver on Friday, October 12th or 19th from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM.
