One of the Best Communities for Young People

Lafayette Colorado was recognized by Anerica's Promise Alliance as being one of the 101 best communities in America for young people. America's Promise Alliance was founded by Colin Powell and his wife. It's a partnership comprised of corporations, non-profits, foundations, policymakers, advocacy and faith groups committed to ensuring that children receive the Five Promises: caring adults; safe place; a healthy start; an effective education; and opportunities to help others --at home, in school and in the community.

Since we have three young people in our home this is good news. And despite popular belief its not because we moved here. But I do believe however that Lafayette won this same regonization 70 years ago too. My understanding its commitment to the musical arts sealed its victory.
