Collinwood Assisted Living
This month Nick is thankful for many things in his life, his family, friends, and the opportunity to get back into in-person events!
Nick was lucky enough to have the opportunity to present Anyone Can Be a Hero at Collinwood Assisted Living last week. This presentation was Nick’s first in person event since 2019 and he was so happy to be able to get back in the swing of things!
Anyone Can Be a Hero focuses on finding your inner superpowers to become a superhero in your community.
After sharing his own story and experience being a hero, Nick enjoyed hearing the residents share stories of being heroes in their own lives.
Nick wants to thank Collinwood Assisted Living for having him, and helping him get back into doing in person events, and the residents for their questions and stories.
Immanuel Lutheran School Christmas Bazaar
It’s almost Thanksgiving, which means it’s getting closer and closer to Christmas! Christmas is Nick’s favorite holiday, and he enjoys spending time with his family and getting them gifts every year.
What better place to find a perfect gift than the ILS Christmas Bazaar! This annual event showcases many different vendors with items like baked goods and crafts.
Nick was able to participate as a non-profit vendor, and he was happy to speak to attendees about Awesome in Action, offer his book for donations, hand out flyers and make some new friends!
Besides getting to tell people about his business and mission, Nick’s favorite part was getting his picture taken with Santa!
Nick enjoyed doing some Christmas shopping, and really got in the holiday spirit!
Thank you ILS for the opportunity!
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!!!
