At Richter Orthodontics we want your smile to transform from good to great! So what makes a great smile? A smile is often the first thing people notice. And while you may think you know a great smile when you see it, did you know that quite a number of factors go into making it a perfect smile?* *Information was taken from Ormco, Damon Smiles.

Broad Smile

Facial Symmetry

Minimal Gingival Display

Full Smiles Display more teeth and have minimal dark space at the corners.

The teeth should evently fill in the entire area of the smile but shouldn't overwhelm your face.

An ideal smile shows minimal gingiva ("gums").

Upright Teeth

Front and Back Occlusion

Smile Arc

Teeth should not tip inward or flare outward. The teeth should sit perfectly upright within the mouth.

A great smile takes into account how all your teeth fit together for a perfect bite.

When smiling, the bottom of the upper teeth should follow a curve that mirrors the curve of the bottom lip.

Director’s Message

long-standing partnership with the Greeley-Evans Youth League (GEYL) since 1982. GEYL essentially programs and runs all the youth baseball and girl’s fast pitch softball for Greeley and the surrounding area and, in 2017, boasted approximately 130 teams with over 1,150 youth participating. Currently, the City of Greeley owns and maintains the Youth Sports Complex, an 8-field complex built specifically for youth and GEYL at 20th Street and 65th Avenue, and works closely with GEYL in terms of scheduling practices, games and tournaments. In fact, there were over 1,100 GEYL games played at the complex in 2017. GEYL also utilizes our historic Forbes Field at 2200 8th Street. Today you will see significant capital improvements at the Youth Sports Complex, completed in the fall of 2017, that were originally identified in the planning of the 2002 Quality-of-Life sales tax program. Improvements include a lighted and paved parking lot for over 450 vehicles, new fencing, landscaping, sidewalks and accessible seating areas.

Awards & Accolades

Greeley Recreation Lifeguards Receive Prestigious Recognition

T

he City of Greeley’s Lifeguards competed in the Colorado Parks and Recreation Association’s annual Lifeguard Games this past July, and we are proud to announce Greeley’s very own Baylor Cobb was named and awarded Colorado’s fastest male lifeguard! Baylor enjoyed the competition, but expressed that the race was a challenge. The annual games are hosted each year at Hyland Hills Park and Recreation District’s Water World with a variety of endurance races and relays, as well as rescue skill challenges. Baylor has been a lifeguard for the City of Greeley’s Culture, Parks and Recreation Department since 2015, and swims year round for the Greeley Loveland Swim Club, as well as for Greeley West High School. He has gone to state competing with his high school team in the 200-yard IM (individual medley), 100-yard breaststroke, 100-yard butterfly, as well as some relays. Cobb continues to swim in hopes of receiving a swimming scholarship to Notre Dame. Congratulations Baylor!

By guiding parents and guardians in support of their children through participating in extra-curricular activities, we can improve on the experience for our athletes. With positive parental support, participation will allow children to develop the necessary physical, social and emotional skills that will allow them to experience success through the entire process, rather than simply measure the end result. Sports can be so much more than winning and losing. Teaching lifelong lessons about teamwork, strength and compassion are characteristics that our young athletes will be able to utilize and carry on throughout their lives. By offering a positive experience for area youth, we can help shape and mold the adults of our future by paving their way towards success. We hope that you will take advantage of the coaching development and parent opportunities to learn how to become positive mentors and supporters of the athletes involved in our programs. For more information, contact Dean Campos at 970-350-9415.

The positive impact of this partnership is evident in the number of youth that participated in our 2017 fall and winter sports. • 786 youth competed in Young America Soccer • 272 students played Young America Tackle Football • 229 youth participated in Mighty Mite Soccer

• 148 registered in 6th Grade Football • 130 participated in Young America Flag Football • 123 youth played Dinky Dunkers Basketball • 81 students were enrolled in 6th Grade Volleyball This past year, Greeley West’s Girls Soccer Team provided a portion of the officials for Greeley Recreation fall soccer.

Junior Developmental Sessions only at Highland Hills

Once young golfers have been introduced to the game, if they decide to take it seriously, the next step is our Developmental Program. The program, along with our Junior Play Days, will get them off to a great start toward a lifelong enthusiasm for golf. The Developmental Program is open to any golfer ages 9-18. These sessions are designed for players that already play and are looking to improve all areas of the game by doing the painstaking work that is necessary to become competitive golfers. This will be a group session where young golfers will have an opportunity to get in-depth instruction, video analysis of their swing and learn practice routines to help them develop their skills, so they can achieve their individual goals. Our philosophy is simple: we will begin at the hole and work backwards to the tee. The goal is to produce young golfers who improve, as they get closer to the hole. Progress will move at the pace of the youngster. In addition, each session will include competitions designed to make the young golfer utilize their skills when it matters most. Thursdays, June 7-July 26 • 12:30-2pm Fee $99 per student/per session Registration begins April 1 at Highland Hills Golf Course

FEATURED PARK

PARKS AND OPEN SPACES

Charlie and Laura Archibeque Park Formerly known as Sunrise Park, the Charlie and Laura Archibeque Memorial Park, located at 325 12th St., will undergo major renovations during the spring and summer of 2018. The City of Greeley Parks Program has the opportunity to install unique and creative new playground equipment at this mature park. Because we relish your opinion, Parks staff will ask for community input and will look specifically at suggestions, feedback and ideas from local families.

Official Rename of the Park, Summer 2017

We will also be constructing a new shelter and restroom building located near the center of the park space. The hallmark of the Archibeque Memorial Park is its abundance of mature shade trees. A new irrigation system will be planned around the lush landscape, preserving the scenery and older trees. New trees will also be planted. Watch out for community meetings, coming soon!

GREELEY’S NATURAL AREAS AND TRAILS PROGRAM

72

When we talk about Greeley’s Natural Areas, we typically focus on one location and its amenities; however it’s also important to highlight how natural areas support public priorities. Cities that have robust natural area programs are more attractive to potential and existing residents.

citizens have made it clear that trails and open lands are important to their quality of life. The Natural Area program also provides opportunities for community engagement through volunteer projects for students and youth groups, community organizations and individuals.

The 900 acres of city-owned natural areas provide a variety of ecosystem conservation that includes storm water management, flood attenuation and groundwater recharge. Natural areas support local agriculture and gardening by providing a nearby habitat for insects to pollinate crops. Plants native to these areas provide Greeley’s natural spaces with growth that will not require irrigation or chemical maintenance. A welldeveloped natural area will choke out invasive weeds, accommodating the rise of streams and rivers reducing potential hazards and providing a buffer from potential flood damage to people and properties.

Greeley’s natural areas and trails are always in season, and the benefits of having them are vast. Enjoy one today! Visit GreeleyGov.com/NaturalAreas for more information and be sure to check out the Greeley Parks map.

In addition to low-maintenance foliage, paved trails and soft-surface paths connect neighborhoods to employment centers, shopping, schools, recreation centers and other communities. These trails provide opportunities to walk, run, bike and experience the great outdoors—as well as reliable and safe alternative transportation. Through the inclusive Parks, Trails and Open Spaces planning process,

SISTER CITY PROGRAM

Moriya, Japan Student Exchange Program

Has your family ever considered hosting a student from a foreign country? Or is your family interested in a cultural learning experience that will last a lifetime? Consider hosting a student from Japan! For more than two decades, the City of Greeley and Moriya, Japan have fostered a Sister City relationship that allows students from Japan to visit Greeley and stay with a host family every even year. This year is no exception. The City of Greeley is currently seeking about 12 Greeley host families to make the commitment, from July 23-30, to host students and chaperones this summer from our Sister City Moriya, Japan. To qualify, potential host families need to pass a background check and be willing to open their home to students and show them a memorable time during their short stay. The City of Greeley organizes a variety of fun activities for the visitors, so the host family has help with their hosting obligation during the work week. Host families will be solely responsible for the weekend activities with their student. By welcoming an exchange participant into your home, you’re giving them a home away from home, while promoting our American culture and values. Applications can be downloaded from Greeleygov.com/Moriya are due May 1, 2018. For more information, call 970-350-9482.
