The fall semester hasn’t started but there were a lot of cars in the Arapahoe Community College parking lot Aug. 11 as the school hosted a variety of Western Welcome Week activities.
Things got started early, and there were long lines at the annual pancake breakfast. Because ACC has closed its kitchen, the cooks toiled away outside. A short distance away, there was a collection of old-time games from bean-bag toss to stilt walking.
Lots of kids “saddled up” for the annual Bruce Wolf Stick Horse Stampede. Penny Smith said she has been coming to Western Welcome Week since she was a little girl, and now she brings her two boys to the activities every year because they have so much fun.
