Left Hand Grange Park
Saturday April 28, 2018 9am – 10:30am
Over 20 people, many of whom are NCA members, met at Left Hand Grange Park to volunteer their time to beautify the area. Shrubs and perennials were planted around the shelter and in the islands in the parking area. Along the creek erosion mitigation was removed now that natural vegetation has taken hold.
Scheduled to last 3 hours, the entire project was completed in just over 90 minutes because of all the helping hands.
Craig Rahenkamp organized things for the NCA to get the word out to members and was one of the volunteers.
Thanks to all that helped, Boulder County Parks and Open Space for organizing and supplying the materials, and Craig for getting the word out.
Visit the Left hand Grange Park and see the improvements!

Niwot 4th of July Celebration
July 4, 2018
This year was another beautiful day for Niwot’s annual Fourth of July parade. Grand Marshal Dick Piland sat proudly perched in Jim Jones’ beautiful 1965 Corvette Stingray convertible. Dick rode in the parade clad in colonial dress reminiscent of our fore fathers. It was a perfect day to celebrate our great nation’s birthday.
This parade gets bigger and better every year thanks to the excellent planning and hard work of:
- NCA organizing committee
- NCA Fourth of July Committee and road crew
- Boy Scout Troop 161
- Niwot Cookie Mom’s
- Niwot High School Key Club
- Niwot Nifties 4-H
- Robbie Vinson (Pedicab service)
- Boulder County Sheriff Color Guard Unit
- Boulder County Sheriffs volunteer deputies
- Parade participants
- Mountain View Fire Department
- And countless individuals that volunteered their time and energy
National Night Out
August 7, 2018 6pm – 9pm
Murray Street, Old Town Niwot
For the second year in a row, the NCA coordinated with the Boulder County Sheriff’s office to hold the National Night Out event in old town Niwot. Members of the Boulder Sheriff’s Department and the Mountain View Fire Rescue gave those who attended a firsthand look at the services these unsung heroes provide to our community. Among the amazing demonstrations were presentations by the canine unit of the Boulder County Sheriff’s office, the Boulder County Swat Team, and the SARCOM drone unit.
Boulder County Commissioners Candidate Forum

Candidates speak to Niwot
The three candidates running for the Boulder County Commissioner District 3 seat came to the Left Hand Grange to speak to 50 plus people in attendance of the Niwot Community Association Forum.
After opening statements, 6 questions that were compiled from submissions by the public were presented for each candidate to address. People left the event with a better understanding the candidate’s positions.
Thanks to all that attended and the candidates who participated!
