*** Pro bono Spotlight
Metro Volunteer Lawyers needs an attorney to help a client who has a problem with a moving company. The client hired movers in January 2006, and they kept her possessions. In May 2007, the client sued and the movers were ordered to return her property or pay her $1,500. The client is unable to get the movers to comply with the order. Contact Patricia Trujillo at firstname.lastname@example.org or (303) 866-9307 if interested in helping this client.

The CHUN Capitol Hill People's Fair celebrates the diversity of Denver’s urban community and its residents. Each year, the DBA hosts a booth to answer public questions and distribute brochures.

*** Softball season begins
Softball season is just around the corner, marking the return of the most family-friendly softball league west of the Pecos. Games are co-ed, often with pre-teens and teenagers playing. The league is relaxed – no umpires, and balls and strikes are not called. The point is to get out and enjoy the beautiful Colorado summer. This year, we’re playing at Crestmoor Park, which has foul lines and an infield that can be discerned from the outfield. Games start in June. Sign up with Jack Tanner (303) 894-4495 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
