Ganahl said the ice cream will use farm fresh, all natural milk and cream produced by Colorado cows from Longmont Dairy. The ice cream will be churned daily, and flavors will include strawberry honey balsamic, pancakes and syrup, cherry vanilla and many more. Ice cream cakes will also be available for purchase.

Lawn mowing app expands

GreenPal, an app that connects homeowners with local, vetted lawn-care professionals, launched in early August in Centennial.

Nashville-based GreenPal allows homeowners to find local, pre-screened lawn professionals. Homeowners can list their lawns with their service date and lawn-care needs. Vetted lawn-care pros can then bid on their properties based on the Google street and aerial images and any other lawn details the homeowner provides.  Homeowners select who they want to work with based on vendor ratings, reviews and price.

Once the service is complete, the lawn care pro will send a time-stamped photo of the completed work. Homeowners can then pay via the app and set up more appointments.

“After successfully launching in 30 other markets, we are excited to help homeowners in Centennial find reliable, local lawn care,” co-founder Gene Caballero said in a news release.

Medical-assistant apprenticeship

Arapahoe Community College and Centura Health have launched Colorado's first registered medical-assistant apprenticeship program. A dozen students are enrolled in the initial cohort.

“We are excited to embark upon this unique partnership with Centura Health to benefit both students and industry,” ACC President Diana M. Doyle said in a news release. “We extend our gratitude to everyone at Centura Health, the Greater Metro Denver Health Care Partnership and local workforce centers who are committed to supporting this program. Our efforts will provide a sustainable pipeline of talented medical assistants across the Centura network.”

The six-month hybrid program includes online, on-site and hands-on laboratory components. Paid apprentices work collaboratively with Centura Health supervisors for 26 weeks (32 hours/week) before taking the National Healthcare Association Medical Assistant certification exam. Apprentices who successfully complete both components become full-time medical assistants with Centura.

For information about the apprenticeship, contact ACC Dean of Business, Technology and Workforce Partnerships Eric Dunker, Ph.D., at or 303-797-5859.
