2017 For Auld Lange Syne (loosely translated to “Awesome Days Past!”)

Please join us as we review the year in song, to the tune of Auld Lang Syne!….Get ready, it’s a long one!! 

First, the Chorus:

Should Awesome people be forgot

And all the awesome times?

Should Awesome in Action be forgot

An Auld lang syne?



And now, the song:


We got a new illu-stra-tor

His name be Darby boy




Senora Urban’s Helping out

Translating to Spanish joy

Surely the Nemesis video will rock

And surely the Peaks  do, Right?




Let’s not forget fun times at Monroe

With Author visits and Literacy Night!





We made new friends; great advocates

The Flet-cher Fam-i-ly  IMGP4418


Have brought us in to Community Pre-K

And High Plains school with glee





We twer lu-ck-y to watch th-e burn

Ripple Effect’s black belt tests

And made a great new film with Alayna,

& Ninja Nate; our filming bests




In Estes Park we met a gal

Who was paying Forward love,

We had a blast in a parade

With our Friends who didn’t shove

And here’s a hand to C.A.S.T for Kids CAST 2014

And help from What if? -IdeationRobin ear muffs 3

We went all the way to Boulder Rainbow Childcare

To spread our ins-pira-tion.



Foco Comic Con, a great success-

Anyone can be a hero, we say

We made costumes, and made some friends

A grand and funny day!


The librarians in Love-land

At the Author Showcase gave us Love

And at Crossroads Church, with Dream Catcher 

We saw Loveland from above.

The year came to an Awesome End

With a visit to Prairie School

A friend from Ability-Fest came through

And the students were so cool!



The Cub Scout Troop Nin-ty-one

Met and drew some pictures, too




And now we’re fundraising for an adaptive zipline

With a girl scout troop so true.

A non-profit, AiA now beAwesome in Action

And we vow to see it through

We’d love to have your continued support

Please let us come to you!


Who knew this song could be so long?

Who knew the many verse?

 At least we got a chance to say

All we’ve done, for better or worse


Have a Safe and Happy New Year!!!











Nick and the AiA team had the great pleasure of schmoozing with some of Northern Colorado’s most creative costumers and fans.  The creativity was boundless and the costumes came from the creative genius of the maker rather than a store rack.

Some were scary, some were funny, some were creative, colorful, inventive, creepy, energetic, furry, devoted, awesome……. but the determination is up to YOU as to which was the best!  VOTE- Visit the AiA Facebook page and register your vote by “loving” your favorite costume.  Then register your second favorite by “liking” the costume.  Here’s a peak at the gallery of costumes to prepare for your Facebook vote [click on the Facebook icon at the top of the menu bar when ready]:
