Contact Marie Welch to RSVP by Thursday June 6th so that she can make reservations.

719-330-4843 mwelch2@outlook.com (no Facebook presence)

These lunches are held at some of the best/popular restaurants in CS. Many SAs don't go out by themselves to these great restaurants but with a group of new friends, it becomes fun. Another benefit: You will now know where to take friends and family when they visit you.

June 21st, Fri – Single Adult Potluck

Theme: Wildcard Night

Bring—or make something with—whatever you have or want. Feel free to clear out your pantry! Feel free to bring your favorite entrée, side dish, dessert, and/or game to share. You can be creative and don’t feel constrained; all Word of Wisdom-appropriate food is welcome. Also, a toaster will be available.  Let Aaron (contact info below) know what you plan on bringing and he can add it to the website and future communications. 6:55 PM spiritual message, Potluck ~7:00, Activities ~8:00-10:30±. Several activities like board/card/video games, socializing, and so forth can happen. There will be a video game system to play with some classic Sega Genesis games as well as a film to enjoy.  All single adults of all stakes welcome. Supervised children, teens, and guests are welcome to this family-friendly event. No potluck dish? Show up anyway since we always have plenty of food and everyone leaves stuffed and with lots of leftovers (plastic bags provided); the hardest part of the night is finding a good home for all the delicious food. Casual dress. Location: Fountain Stake Center, 1310 Aeroplaza Drive. CSC Contact: Aaron Ricks (719) 433-6650 akirbyricks@gmail.com. Sponsor: Fountain Stake.

June 23rd, Sun. 7:00 – Multi-stake SA Fireside

4955 Meadowland Blvd., Colorado Springs CO 80918

Since the normal Sunday would be Father’s Day, this fireside is being held a week later than usual. A panel of members from diverse relationship backgrounds will discuss these questions: How do I fit in as a single adult in a family-oriented Church? How do I establish meaningful relationships outside of marriage? There will also be Q&A. Refreshments and socializing afterwards. Sponsored by the Colorado Springs Stake.


June 29th, Sat – Unofficial Annual Whitewater Rafting Trip

Location: Near Buena Vista at the rafting company's location; details on time and directions will follow those who have booked. Contact: dale.peterson@alumni.stanford.edu 

The Brown’s Canyon 16-mile full-day trip is one of the most popular adventures offered by the River Runners company. River Runners has been leading trips for over 50 years. The trip is suitable for everyone from first-timers to seasoned rafters. It starts with easy whitewater, giving beginners enough experience in the first part of the trip so they can enjoy the larger rapids later. There is a professional guide in every raft. We break for lunch in a wooded setting.  

Our group has a discounted price, which includes all gear and lunch. The cost is $114.25 per person, discounted from the $170 that companies typically charge for this trip. Please book by June 15th. This helps the company prepare for the group size, though the company may accept bookings after that date.  If you are a vegetarian or have special dietary requirements, please advise River Runners when you book. To book, please do both of the following:

Those of us who are interested will have dinner afterwards at a local restaurant and enjoy the nearby hot springs. All are welcome, whether single or married, Church member or friend of another or no faith, etc.
