2017 For Auld Lange Syne (loosely translated to “Awesome Days Past!”)
Please join us as we review the year in song, to the tune of Auld Lang Syne!….Get ready, it’s a long one!!
First, the Chorus:
Should Awesome people be forgot
And all the awesome times?
Should Awesome in Action be forgot
An Auld lang syne?
And now, the song:
We got a new illu-stra-tor
His name be Darby boy
Senora Urban’s Helping out
Translating to Spanish joy
Surely the Nemesis video will rock
And surely the Peaks do, Right?
Let’s not forget fun times at Monroe
With Author visits and Literacy Night!
We made new friends; great advocates
The Flet-cher Fam-i-ly
Have brought us in to Community Pre-K
And High Plains school with glee
We twer lu-ck-y to watch th-e burn
Ripple Effect’s black belt tests
And made a great new film with Alayna,
& Ninja Nate; our filming bests
In Estes Park we met a gal
We had a blast in a parade
With our Friends who didn’t shove
And here’s a hand to C.A.S.T for Kids
And help from What if? -Ideation
We went all the way to Boulder Rainbow Childcare
To spread our ins-pira-tion.
Foco Comic Con, a great success-
Anyone can be a hero, we say
We made costumes, and made some friends
A grand and funny day!
The librarians in Love-land
At the Author Showcase gave us Love
And at Crossroads Church, with Dream Catcher
We saw Loveland from above.
The year came to an Awesome End
With a visit to Prairie School–
A friend from Ability-Fest came through
And the students were so cool!
The Cub Scout Troop Nin-ty-one
Met and drew some pictures, too
And now we’re fundraising for an adaptive zipline
With a girl scout troop so true.
A non-profit, AiA now be
And we vow to see it through
We’d love to have your continued support
Please let us come to you!
Who knew this song could be so long?
Who knew the many verse?
At least we got a chance to say
All we’ve done, for better or worse
Have a Safe and Happy New Year!!!

Some were scary, some were funny, some were creative, colorful, inventive, creepy, energetic, furry, devoted, awesome……. but the determination is up to YOU as to which was the best!
