Roundhouse tenant sets grand opening

       Carmichael Training Systems (CTS), so far the only tenant in the Roundhouse commercial center at Highway 24 and 21st Street, will hold its grand opening Saturday, June 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
       “We'd like the public to see what we have available,” said Abby Ruby, spokesperson for the personalized training business started by former bicycle racer Chris Carmichael.
       Activities will include a chance to run on a treadmill with former Iron Man event winners Tim DeBoom (2001 and '02) and Craig Alexander (2008) from 3 to 3:30 p.m., and to ride a stationary bike with Carmichael from 4 to 5 p.m.
       Originally the home of the Midland railroad from 1887 to 1949, the Roundhouse interior was completely renovated this year by the Griffis/Blessing development company. CTS is leasing about a third of the building's 30,000 square feet.
       Michael Patrick Garman will reveal a line of yoga sculptures at a promotional party hosted at the Red Energy Suite Thursday, June 18.
       The time is 6 to 8 p.m. The location is at 617 N. 17th St. The public is welcome.
       Garman, the son of famous sculptor Michael Garman, previously worked with his father, with some of his character figures among those sold in the Garman gallery/museum in Old Colorado City.
       The yoga sculptures represent his first line as a solo artist, a press release states.
       A new photography business, My Unforgettable Images, has opened in Old Colorado City's Old Town Plaza at 2501 W. Colorado Ave. Ste. #109.
       Owners Richard McDaniel and Kristy Mullen will work in the studio or on location, specializing in photos of children, families, pets, weddings and other special events.
       The business is open daily.

       All That Glitters Fine Jewelry Gallery, 2518 West Colorado Ave., will present its annual estate sale Friday, June 19 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
       On display will be more than $3 million in jewelry from the Singer Collection of New York City, including pieces from the estates of movie stars and other celebrities.
       The theme this year is Camelot, and employees will be dressed in that medieval style, according to Carol Willis of All That Glitters. In connection with that theme, she said, “we hope to have on display at least one piece of jewelry from the estate of Jackie Kennedy.”
