Vibrant Littleton Summer Social was a hit!

Vibrant friends and neighbors enjoyed an afternoon discussing what we love about Littleton at this summer's VL social on August 26. We also contributed to The Undies Project, helping bring their tally of new underwear for needy folks to over 5,000 pairs. If you missed the event, there's a recap and more photos on our website. Another social planned for this fall. Stay tuned!

You have until October 9 to see this fabulous exhibit at the Littleton Museum. Artist Danielle SeeWalker is an enrolled Citizen of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. SeeWalker is described on the Museum’s website as a mother, artists, writer, curator, activist, and business woman. She says, “My work over the past few years has used the revealing aspects of American Indian history, as told from the perspective of a Native person, to demonstrate the profound impact it has had on our contemporary cultures today.” This is the first time the Museum has featured a solo show of a Native American artist.

Summer Reading Recommendation
"Walkable City" by Jeff Speck

How can we address some of the problems that suburban-dwellers typically complain about? Urbanist Jeff Speck shows how we can free ourselves from dependence on the car — which he calls "a gas-belching, time-wasting, life-threatening prosthetic device" — by making our communities more walkable and more pleasant for more people. Mr. Speck is a city planner whose book, "Walkable City" has been the best-selling city planning title of this decade. > Bemis Public Library.
