Moving from Summer to Fall During the Pandemic 

Home Improvements

While the weather was still warm, clients have taken the opportunity to fix up some things around their homes! With the help of staff, clients did things from repainting decks to making new blankets!

2020 Awards Banquet

This year’s awards banquet was hosted by Dos Rios Golf Club. Staff and clients were recognized for all their hard work and patience during that past year. While not all of our clients were able to attend, all were presented a unique award.

Special Olympics during the Pandemic

Due to the pandemic, clients attended Special Olympics online! They were able to participate in events then upload times to the website. Clients participated in events such as swimming, biking, and running!

Director’s Corner

Fall has arrived again in the Gunnison Valley! We are enjoying the cooler temperatures and bright yellow leaves after a warm summer. I am SO thankful to report that all our staff and clients have remained healthy so far this year. Our amazing staff continues to take every precaution to ensure that they can provide services to our clients safely. At the same time that they are coping with social distancing, gloves, masks, and temperature logs, our staff have risen to the challenge of finding safecreative alternatives to our usual group activities. Picnics, bike rides, gardening, plein air painting, outdoor birthday parties, hiking, carnival games, and virtual story time are just a few of the fun activities that have been offered.

We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the A.V. Hunter Trust for not only awarding Six Points a $10,000 grant but also a one-time grant of $5,000 to assist with the unique challenges that this year has brought. This support allows us to continue serving our clients and fulfilling our mission.

It’s because of the incredible Six Points clients, staff, volunteers, donors, and Board of Directors that I am honored to be the new Executive Director. What an exciting opportunity to learn and to serve the community of the Gunnison Valley and beyond! Many thanks for your ongoing support of Six Points and our clients!
