Colorado's Newest Blue Hat!!
« on: April 20, 2021, 11:41:58 AM »
I hope you'll join me in welcoming our newest Colorado Appleseeder . . . Colorado Red!! I said she was our newest Blue Hat but, as far as I know, she's our only active Blue Hat. I guess that means she now heads up the Colorado Applecore program!  :)

She hit the ground running this past weekend in Colorado Springs, performing all the behind-the-scenes logistical chores that make events run smoothly. And if that wasn't enough she completed her check to be an RSO and ran the left side of our firing line the entire day on Sunday!

Welcome to the family, Red! Always happy to see another gal join the ranks. We're practically neighbors, by out west standards!

Awesome!  Thanks for stepping up!

In giving us dominion over the animal kingdom, God has signified His will that we subdue the beast within ourselves.
John Lancaster Spalding

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin, 1775

"A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."  George Washington 1790

“[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…”
– Richard Henry Lee, Declaration Signer
