In August of 1989, I moved to Estes Park after graduating from Colorado State University, to accept a job teaching art at the elementary school. A dream job, in an amazing mountain town came true for me. At the time thought that I would commit to five-six years, now it's 30 years later and I want to bring people together to share their experiences of why they came here and how they have carved out a home in this beautiful rugged valley. There are so many interesting, creative, hard-working people up here and we all have a story. Reading accounts of the different ways people showed up after the 2013 flood, and other natural disasters that this town has faced, it strikes me that we are a community that knows how to pull together and support during hard times. So, this celebration is based on sharing during a non-crisis time to develop our relationships even more.
The event takes place Thursday, August 15 at Elkins Distillery from 4 p.m. to close.
