Littleton Residents Encouraged to Share their Wisdom

(March
15, 2011 – Littleton, Colorado) - Arapahoe Community College (ACC) and the
Milestone Project kicked off a new initiative today, called A Community of
Wisdom
. A Community of Wisdom is a city-wide collaboration in
Littleton demonstrating that all citizens, no matter their age, have wisdom in
their heads and hearts.

From
March 15 through May 6, Littleton community members are encouraged to pick up a
“wise owl” postcard at participating locations and answer the two questions on
the back, “What is a bit of wisdom you received as a child?” and “What is a bit
of wisdom you would like to pass along to a child?” The owls will be hung on
wisdom trees constructed at ACC, the Buck Center, the Bemis Library and various
locations throughout Littleton.

The
initiative will culminate with a community celebration hosted by ACC on May 6.
Selected wisdom from the wise owl postcards will be read at the celebration by
local celebrities. Participants will also have the opportunity to enter into a
drawing for a copy of the new Milestones book, Wise at Heart.

Wise
owl postcards can be found at ACC, the Milestones Project, Bemis Public
Library, Buck Recreation Center, Colorado Business Bank, Details Boutique,
Doctors’ Care, Hot Pots, JaJa Bistro, Couture Kid, Las Huertas, Lola’s Sugar
Rush, Littleton Public Schools, Savory Spice Shop, South Suburban Parks and
Recreation –Buck Center and Willow – An Artisan Market.
