A Promising Start to 2021!

All clients have 2 doses

All clients have received two doses of the vaccine!  We are thrilled that our clients have remained healthy so far during the pandemic.  As our community remains stable in regard to Covid-19 and restrictions are starting to ease, enrichment programming plans to resume:  Art  classes are scheduled for March 25th with limited class size.

 

Clients are active

Clients continue to remain active in the community and are swimming, Nordic skiing, and doing Special Olympic virtual basketball skills. We also now have two iPads used for Spirit Club that can be used at home or at the office.

Clients have also been busy with home improvements.  With new furniture to whole new flooring, clients are constantly staying busy with fixing up their homes.

Setting the Table for Six Points

Our Thrift Store is featuring a scaled-down version of our very popular fundraising event called “Setting The Table for Six Points.” A monthly themed table, on display in the store, will be auctioned to the highest bidder.  Through March 15th the theme was Italian and included table settings, linens, centerpiece, music CD’s, a coffee table book and cookbook, a bottle of fine wine, and a $100 gift certificate to Garlic Mike’s.  Coming mid-March is an Easter-themed table, and April will feature Cinco de Mayo.  Check out www.facebook.com/six.points.71/ for current table auction.

Director’s Corner

Happy Spring! Spring in the Gunnison Valley can be an interesting season between the mud, wind, snow, rain, and occasional sun. However, it also brings warmer temps, robins, cranes, the last days of skiing, and this year…COVID vaccines!!!  We are so grateful to Gunnison County for ensuring that our clients and the staff who serve them were able to get vaccinated as quickly as possible. Many, many thanks!

Tax season is upon us, and I hope you will check out ReFUND Colorado at https://refundwhatmatters.org/  if you are looking for an easy way to support a favorite nonprofit this spring. Six Points’ registration number is 20073005916, and there are many excellent causes and organizations listed with ReFUND Colorado. Help those who are helping to make Colorado an even better place!!!

Our clients are gearing up for summer already.  There are bikes to get tuned up, triathlons to train for, summer jobs to apply for, gardens to plant, picnics to plan, and hopefully more time with friends and family this year. I hope you and your loved ones are well, and I hope YOU will be among the friends and family that we see this year!!! Come by for a tour, visit the thrift store, soak up the sun on our patio, check out our new website, or just give us a call if there’s anything we can do for you…or just to catch up. We’re here, and ever grateful for your support.
