December is a time when we reflect on the past year and review the good, the bad and the challenges in which we can grow from. It’s also a good reminder to review your insurance policy and ensure that your replacement cost is adequate to rebuild your home in the event of a total loss. We recommend reviewing the home policy at least once a year but more if there are any construction changes that would affect the value. Contact the Rippy Agency by phone or text at 303.219.1470 to schedule a complimentary insurance review.

In the month of December, we also think of children and the sheer joy they have on their faces during the holiday seasons. It’s a magical time, filled with wishes and dreams of children. Two of the children on our Angel Tree have asked for a belt as a wish item. You read that right; a belt. We have 28 children total on our tree this year. If you’d like to fulfill their holiday wishes, please stop by 220 Pavilions Place Unit D, Monday through Friday from 8:30 – 5:30 to read the wishes and select the child or family in which you’d like to adopt.

We’ll be taking Elsie the Little Free Mobile Library to two events in December – one with CASA and another with Almost Home. The families served by these organizations will be receiving gifts donated for the holiday and will also be picking out books they get to keep from Elsie, our 1966 Vintage Trailer that was converted to a Little Free Library. If you’d like for Elsie to visit your school or neighborhood, please email

Happy New Year and be safe!
