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]:



Even security guard Jason got in the fun dressed as… guess it….a Comic Con security guard!!IMGP7938

Navigate up to the Facebook icon there at the top of the page above the menu bar, and take a minute to cast your “LOVE” and “LIKE” votes for the costumes you find the most amazing and second most amazing!!!!

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
