Special friends and supporters of outgoing Cherry Hills Village Mayor Doug Tisdale gathered at locally owned Pino’s Neighborhood Pizzeria and Wine Bar, one of the businesses located on Old Hampden with a Cherry Hills Village address. The Italian Epiphany Celebration and Festival, as Tisdale named the evening, featured fabulous wine, appetizers, pizzas with dozens of toppings, salads and other Italian dishes. In addition to Tisdale’s sharing of his history while serving Cherry Hills Village as a member its council and mayor, he showed off the crystal gavel gift from the village.
Entertainment was provided by the exciting a capella singers called Cool Shooz. His newly engaged son Doug, Jr. known as “TheDoug” is a recent addition to the songsters.
He considers himself a regionalist and was passionate about being mayor. The multi-talented Mayor Tisdale, who is an attorney and not a man of few words, will be sharing his resources, expertise and energy with South Metro Denver Chamber as the executive vice president of Economic Development.

Although they gave a delightful performance of Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass,” in this group – it’s all about those shoes
LaFawn Biddle Day to last all year
At his last official proclamation presentation, Cherry Hills Village Mayor Doug Tisdale presented a sentimental one to LaFawn Biddle.
LaFawn Biddle, a renowned and powerful force in the philanthropic community, has dedicated her life to community service, improving the lives of thousands through her exemplary activities with dozens of nonprofit organizations. One of those includes serving as chairman of the Board at St. Mary’s Academy in Cherry Hills Village. She is also the co-founder of the Institute for Life & Care, whose mission is to strengthen those who serve others in our community and beyond and whose work has achieved great results throughout Colorado.
At a “champagne” toast gathering of board members, staff and supporters of ILC, Biddle was presented with the cleverly-worded proclamation that will extend the celebration of the 51st anniversary of her 39th birthday throughout 2015.
“Whereas her vision, spirit and service have deservedly earned a special place of admiration, affection and endearment in the hearts and minds of the residents of Cherry Hills Village,” was proclaimed. Mayor Tisdale, of course, reminded the audience that Cherry Hills Village was ranked the No. 1 Best Suburb of America in which to live by The Wall Street Journal and stated how proud he was to present the last proclamation of his term to Biddle.
