The Golf Club at Ravenna became the setting for “Havana Nights” as the annual Hats Off to Hope House event was held at the home of Bill and Jill Maul on Sept. 16. More than 170 guests attended, including Glenn Jacks, owner and developer of Ravenna, as well as John and Lorraine Bandimere (pictured) and Tehema owners Tony and Nancy Haley. More than $80,000 was raised to invest in teen moms who are dedicated to building stable lives for their little ones.
The year was 1943, when a gallon of gas cost 15 cents, “Casablanca” won the Oscar for best picture, the Marine Corps opened its ranks to women — and Irene Downey of Littleton was among the first to enlist.
Downey was 22 years old that year and living in Illinois.
Colorado U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet met with members of the Littleton Hawks U16 AA Hockey Team and their coaches during the team’s recent visit to Washington., D.C.
The team, in the nation’s capital to compete in a national tournament with 47 other teams from around the country, stopped by Bennet’s office and toured the U.S. Capitol.
