Rootin’ Tootin’s Perform for the AHS “No Problem Benefit Concert”

no_problem_flyerThe family-friendly “NO PROBLEM BENEFIT CONCERT PARTY” featured THREE innovative bands in a single evening, along with student ensembles, raffles and auctions of goods and services donated by local merchants. The event was open to the public. Some of the groups that performed on Sat had personal ties to the high school and donated their performances.

The Hip Replacements, a classic rock-keyboards group, included bass player AHS dad and singer AHS mom. The Rocky Mountain Steel Bands, Rootin’ Tootin’s Dixieland Jazz Band and a student Jazz Ensemble also performed.

Rootin’ Tootin’s and the Historic Littleton Scavenger Hunt

More than 200 people took over downtown Littleton Sept. 29, trying to decipher clues like “Hot cocoa on a winter’s day” and “Before Home Depot, Littleton had this hardware store.”

Organized by Historic Littleton Inc., the inaugural Littleton Scavenger Hunt urged folks to “Treasure the present and hunt for the past.” Everyone picked up a ballot at the light-rail station, then set out to visit merchants who were hiding clues in their stores. Along the way, participants got to “meet” the city’s founder, Richard Little, and infamous cannibal Alfred Packer, who is buried in Littleton Cemetery.

Some who played along enjoyed looking at familiar buildings with fresh eyes, perhaps noticing for the first time interesting architectural details that have been there all along.

All correct ballots were entered into a drawing for prizes – first place won $500. Oddly, none of the top three winners lingered at Delizios to hear their names announced. Plenty of others did, enjoying Littleton’s own Rootin’ Tootin’ Dixie Band on the patio. HLI gave free membership to everyone there.
