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!

 

 

 

REPEAT CHORUS

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

 

 

 

REPEAT CHORUS

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

 

 

REPEAT CHORUS

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.

REPEAT CHORUS

 

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!

REPEAT CHORUS

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!!!

Gary told us about a very cool event that the Loveland Visitor Center is helping with:

 

Winter Wonder Lights

is a fun festival of lights at Chapunga park. There will be a beautiful light display, as well as food vendors and live entertainment nightly through January 17, 2018

Along the way, we chatted it up with our friends, Jacki Marsh and Heather, of Rabbask Designs.

Finally, we loved tricking the most amazing small business development partner at What If? Ideation,  Robin Shukle! She was a fantastic recipient of a gag gift, and, as always, full of advice and information for Awesome in Action, Co. Come check her out at Let’s Talk Tuesdays, a free event that allows for collaboration of ideas over lunch hour. (reservations required)

 

What a great time spreading joy to these wonderful people, and more!

Happy Holidays, from Awesome in Action to YOU!
