Happy Friday

Folks:

Happy Friday! I hope all is well with all of you.

Some of you already know this first bit of news. Nancy has accepted a position at UNC. Her last day will be next Friday. While Nancy has been her under a year, she is already deeply embedded in our community. She has brought a kind, generous, fun energy to the office and so much professionalism. Her commute will be so much shorter now and, potentially, her life longer as she avoids the risks of driving from Greeley to the Fort every day. Nancy, we wish you well and we will miss you.

Hey, very little to report. I feel like I am constantly going and that we are getting tons of work accomplished, so why isn’t there more to say? Well, maybe I am too deep into my own projects to see what the rest of you are doing. If so, tell me to slow down, look up, see your work and accomplishments!

Closing weekend at the festival is tonight and tomorrow. A great lineup for the weekend with guests from around the world joining us.

Want to remind you as well of some upcoming dates.
