Hero-making success!  Nick and the Nicksters enjoyed two days of  science fiction fun and fantasy at the 2017 Fort Collins Comic Con (FC3).  The event raises money for the Poudre libraries through geek inclusivity and fun!  FC3 raised $30,000 for the Poudre Libraries this year alone.  Here are some highlights:

From set up to show, we enjoyed such an awesome community event.

Inspired and technically perfect costumes abounded!IMG_6902sm

Nick’s speech on the Inner Hero caused inner ponderings as the inner heros developed.  Nick’s inner monologue says he is a super-genius.  IMG_6752smIMG_6806sm

The T.A.R.D.I.S. even landed at the Aztlan Center!

 

The table became a crafting zone for hero masks!

27 Years of the Americans With Disabilities Act

Department of Justice seal On July 26, 2017, the Department of Justice published “27 Years of the Americans with Disabilities Act,” and Nick was so busy hanging out at the Ability Fest in Fort Collins, that he forgot to remind all of the Nicksters and you, his followers!
So, in a time of political uncertainty and tension, we here at AiA would like you to know that because of this piece of legislation 27 years ago, Nick is able to enjoy a quality of life from simple breathing, nourishment, outdoor water sports, to community speaking events like his 2015 TEDxFrontRange speech, or taking an evening  “roll” through the neighborhood as the sun sets.
Thank you ADA, former President George HW Bush, and all your proponents in Congress.  You and the folks who adhered to the law made an incredibly positive change in our world and are what being awesome is all about!  Awesome in Action
