Baby Blankets from the Crimson Storm!

On Saturday, November 29, 2008, the crew of the Crimson Storm completed their year-long project of making baby blankets to donate to charity.They delivered 48 handmade baby blankets, 10 handmade flannel receiving blankets, 30 handmade shoulder burp cloths, and 15 handmade bibs to the St. Joan of Arc Church in Arvada. The St Joan of Arc Church will be distributing the blankets and other items to various groups that help unwed mothers who have decided to keep their babies.

Each year, the St. Joan of Arc Church collects many donations to create lovely gift baskets for young teen mothers, single mothers, women in crisis, homeless shelters, and families in need. The Crimson Storm’s blankets were received with great enthusiasm and will be placed where they will fill the greatest need.

Pirates Invade 16th Street Mall!

There is ne’er a more intense look than when a pirate is deep in thought about finding hidden treasure. Such was the case on October 18th, as over 30 garbed members of the Colorado Rogues boarded the 16th St. Mall for their annual Treasure Hunt.

Now in its third year, the Treasure Hunt has become a much anticipated event among the Rogues. Members from each ship spent the very beautiful and sunny Fall day deciphering map pieces, answering questions on pirate history, rearranging letters and collecting booty. The game was a frenzied rush to each Step-n-Fetch-manned post, a quick brainstorming session to decode their clue, then a mad dash to the next location.
