When asked about what he is looking forward to most this Sunday as part of Open Streets, Nick replies, “Mustard! Yes, folks, there will be vendors, who will most probably be offering, a mustard…which apparently is very exciting!
Open Streets is a hip new, FREE event in Fort Collins that Awesome in Action has the good fortune to participate in this weekend.
On Sunday, from 10 am to 3 pm, a route running from North to South Fort Collins will be blocked off to traffic in order to provide a safe family-fun environment.
There will be face paint, bouncy castles, games, sidewalk chalk, snacks, and treats all along the route offered by various organizations and businesses throughout Northern Colorado.
Awesome in Action will be hosting a booth of experiences. There will be an opportunity to race a friend in a manual wheelchair obstacle course,
converse or direct a friend through a maze with Augmentative Communication (using speech devices supplied by our favorite PRC Representative, Samantha Strong!)
and try out adaptive sidewalk chalk! (IF you can get it away from NICK for long enough!!)
We’d love to see you there! Please come and check us out this Sunday, September 9th from 10am to 3 pm!
Nick and his Awesome team have been having a blast delivering Christmas gifts to old friends and colleagues in Loveland and Fort Collins!
He loved spending time with his old friend, Gary Light, of the Loveland Visitor’s Center!
Gary told us about a very cool event that the Loveland Visitor Center is helping with:
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.
Rabbask continues to support community artists of all sorts, and offers Guitar Round nights and performance space for local musicians!
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)
