Left Handers have much to celebrate here in Niwot. Our town was named after Chief Niwot, whose name translates to "Left Hand" in the Arapaho language. It's only fitting that we embrace a holiday that celebrates our namesake. International Left Handers Day is August 13th and we intend to make this an out of the ordinary celebration for years to come!
This year the event will take place in Cottonwood Square on the corner of Niwot Rd. and 79th Street. Come out early and stay late.
Saturday, August 11, 2012 ~ 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Congratulations to Sydney Studholme for finding the first of five ducks I’ve placed around Niwot. Sydney found this little quacker at the Niwot Market. Kudos to dad Thomas for snapping the picture.
Kids, if you find a duck, take it to Warren, Carlson and Moore in Cottonwood Square Shopping Center to receive your free entry in the Courier’s 6th Annual Duck Race, on Sept. 8 at Centerbridge Drive and Dry Creek.

Left Hand Laurel: Niwot Cookie Moms
BY LIZ EMMETT-MATTOX
Inspired by a Chicago-area organization that sends out thousands of care packages to military personnel deployed overseas, and a Niwot mom who regularly packed up boxes of homemade cookies for her own daughters in the armed services, Niwot Realty owner Pat Murphy pulled together a group of local women who call themselves the Cookie Moms.
For nearly two years now, between eight and 15 women have met every couple of months at Murphy’s house to bake, wrap and ship boxes containing homemade cookies and other items that make military life just a little more pleasant.
Depending on the season, the occasion and the donations they have received, the lucky recipients might find beef jerky, toothpaste, lip balm or even a hand-knitted hat packed in with their baked goods.
