Men’s Breakfast is on the same date (Saturday, May 13th) but at a different location (Ridgeline Church) and time (7:30 – 9:30 a.m.) so we can join other brothers to hear Mark Johnson, KOA Sports Director and “Voice of the CU Buffalos.”  Mark has a passion for sports, rodeo, and, in his words, “talking to men about being accountable, about being men of integrity.”  Call Guy West (720-883-2337) if you need a ride.  Breakfast will be served; event is free.
