LOVELAND – The nation’s largest outdoor sculpture show is seeking volunteers to perform a wide variety of tasks. “Without the hard work and dedication of each volunteer, this event would not happen,” says Deb Alles, Volunteer Coordinator of the Loveland Sculpture Invitational.

Loveland lost many of the auto dealerships when they moved out to the Centerra Motorplex. Yes, they are probably still technically in Loveland but not in town like they used to be. (Crossroads Blvd. and I-25)
Well, another auto dealership in Loveland is moving on. Magnum Motors (at the corner of West Eisenhower and Prospect Street) will be relocation in July. This dealership, that I walk by many days on my exercise route, has many high end cars and tricked out trucks.
The new location for Magnum Motors will be on Hiway 287 between Loveland and Fort Collins. They will be located in what used to be a gas station/repair shop that is north of the strip of flea markets.
They said the advantages of moving are more space and better visibility.

Veteran Business Owners Network (VBON) has been in Loveland for about two years.
Today, I went to one of their meetings, and I will go back.
What a great group of veterans and those who support veterans. The group started out as a group of vets who wanted to network and refer each other. It has now expanded to a more general networking group (with helping veterans always a part of their activities), and is hoping to grow.
Members of the group include veterans, spouses of veterans and others who support and want to help those who have served in our military. There is no membership fee.
The VBON tagline is “Empowering Warrior Dreams.”
From the Veteran Business Owners Network website, I learned that VBON’s purpose is:
To network with other business owners, veterans and veteran supporters to assist, help, guide, and support veterans in need of assistance. We can help with financial assistance, emotional assistance, as well as recommendations for guidance as needed.
Our creed is to help veterans in need.
Our resources are the VBON team members who through their business acumen have the knowledge and experience required to assist veterans in need.
Our support includes financial ability, emotional support, as well as referring each members business, social, and community contacts to the other members in the group.
VBON meetings are held every other Friday at 8 a.m. at Mimi’s.
Come see what this fine group of patriotic men and women is all about.

Tidbits, the wonderful and free newspaper is back. Tidbits of Greeley, Centerra, Loveland and the surrounding areas is available again.
This paper is distributed to coffee shops and other businesses. It always contains some amazing and interesting facts, trivia and factoids.
I met with the owner of our local Tidbits, Ron Ross, recently. He really has the paper looking good with tons of local ads. If you have a desire to advertise in it, email Ron at RonRoss@TrustTidbits.com.
Another interesting part of Tidbits is a radio show called Tidbits Talk. Ron hosts this show that can be hear on Saturdays from noon to 1 pm on 1310 KFKA Newstalk. It is also 1310kfka.com.
As someone who has always loved trivia, I am happy to see “The Neatest Little Paper Ever Read” back in local stores.

Anthology Book Company in Loveland was slated to close forever in about three weeks. This was sad news, especially when tied to the fact that City News has closed.
Well, good news. Anthology will not be closing. They found a partner to keep it open.
A business called 3 Coffee, located in Milliken, will be doing business in the Anthology business.
The 3 Coffee business in Milliken is a coffee shop and a place to roast coffee.
Many in Loveland are very happy I think, to have the bookstore coffee shop stay in downtown Loveland (DoLo).
Anthology Book Co. is located at 422 East Fourth Street.
What are your thoughts on this?
