July 23, 2017
Aims Community College hosted its seventh annual car show July 15 at Aims' Windsor campus, 1120 Southgate Drive, as part of Aims' 50th anniversary celebration.
Community members and car lovers saw a variety of cars from different eras displayed in front of the school's Automotive and Technology Center, and Aims automotive instructors answered questions about the program while guests toured the facility.
"The automotive program has, yet again, hosted a successful car show," said Aims' President Leah L. Bornstein in a news release. "We had a great turnout and are thankful for everyone who participated. I hope everyone had a chance to learn about Aims' nationally recognized automotive program, and it would be wonderful if some attendees discovered a new, exciting career that is high in demand."

Women2Women helps 1,000 women since its opening more than eight years ago
The Board of Directors for Women2Women announced last week it reached a milestone this month, providing service to 1,000 women since the organization first began more than eight years ago. The local nonprofit and grant provider for women has sought to fulfill a gap in critical community needs, providing support and emergency funding to women in need, according to a news release.
This achievement comes in tandem with Women2Women's new partnership with Leanna's Closet, a Weld County agency that helps women in need find work-related clothing for job interviews and first days on the job. Community members donate all clothing, and clients do not pay for the clothing or accessories they receive. Leanna's Closet has provided six women with outfits for job interviews since it opened its doors in May.
