You will see many of the Town of Parker Sponsored events and information on this website that is provided to me via press releases and personal relationships I’ve fostered over the 16 years of maintaining this Parker Hyper-Local Community & Business Directory. You will also see Rotary Club Events, Chamber Events, Church Events, Local Non-Profit Events listed here.
Therefore please do not ask me when the snowplow will be on your street, to dispose of the barking dog next door or why The Town of Parker has a whacky signage code. I can’t help you. There are many official Parker CO resources here.
What you CAN ask me!
What is the best happy hour in town? What is my favorite coffee shop? ( I Love ALL of them actually) Who is my favorite town council person? Where is the community Messiah performed? Or pretty much anything else that has to do with the goings-on in our wonderful closely-knit community of Parker CO. If I don’t know the answer I can usually direct you to someone who does know.
I do not receive any compensation from any agency for the content on the site nor is the content featured biased because of payment.
The website does receive compensation via ads See Disclosure Policy Here.
Sponsored posts and business profile articles are paid for advertorial content and are marked as such.
Sometimes I play favorites! After living in, raising my children in and owning businesses in Parker for the last 36 years I have a couple of friends that happen to own businesses here and I do them favors from time to time via promotion on my websites.
I don’t accept all advertising and reserve the right to refuse any listings or advertising on the website for any reason at any time. I reserve the right to remove anything from the website at any time for any reason.
I have some exclusive relationships with top clients and they have secured my SEO services for their business category.
Do you wish you could be involved too?
WONDERFUL… I try to know everything that’s going on but since this is a volunteer effort sometimes I don’t have time to get to all of the events or press releases. With the new format I can set up Parker Locals who have connections are spokespeople for a local organization or just moms who have something to say with a platform on the site. Not a techie? Want to submit an article? Fantastic! Let me know. .
