And the big news is (drumroll, please)
he’s back!

Our beloved former Executive Director, Daniel Bruce, is returning!  We couldn’t be happier to welcome Daniel and his wife Erin back to the Gunnison Valley and back to Six Points.

Daniel is already working remotely for Six Points as the Executive Director and will be back in Gunnison around the New Year.  Nancy is moving into the role of Assistant Executive Director, and she is very excited for Daniel’s return after helping to hold down the fort during a pandemic!!! We look forward to a bright and productive season ahead for Six Points as we continue to seek the best ways to serve the community.

Clients are getting out!  A group went out for lunch to local steakhouse Ol’ Miner; Johnny did a solo trip to Denver  (way to go, Johnny!) and then joined a private group on a trip to Glenwood Springs; Joe and Johnny celebrated their November birthdays with a trip to Grand Junction; a group of clients went to Salida for a  day of R & R. Clients continue to swim, ski with adaptive sports, and work out at the gym!

Clients are getting out to lunch, a trip to Denver, and a trip to GJ

Jeff and John are taking the lead on a current fundraiser in Gunnison, checking coats at the Elk Lodge winter concerts to raise money for the recreation fund.  The rec fund will help clients participate in Special Olympics and purchase fitness center passes.  So far they, and other client volunteers, have raised about $574!
