The end of a year signifies an ideal time to thank those who have made 2014 such a success for us.
I have to admit, 2014 has been the best year of my life so far. I was blessed with a sweet, healthy and loving baby boy, and was also granted an incredible promotion to executive director of the Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts in June.
We have come so far in seven short months. We look forward to a very bright future and welcome 2015 with open arms. I’m excited to see what this year has in store for us. I can tell you this much — we will greet every opportunity and challenge with art as the answer.
I’m blessed every day to wake up and know that another life will be touched, another child will find his or her passion, and another employee will get to live his or her dream. I’m so lucky and so thankful. I couldn’t do it without the support of my incredible staff:
Brie, Betty, Jess, Michele, Maurine, Terry, Liz and Judy — I owe it all to you. Thank you so very much for helping grow art in Glenwood Springs. You are so amazing.
