A Look Back at 2020 – Please help us!  (Deadline:  Tues. Dec 29)

2020 was a year we will never forget!  During a year of COVID upheaval there were some silver linings, times of gratitude and, of course, loss.  We need your help compiling an end-of-year look back at 2020.  

1) Send us SIX WORDS that capture thankfulness and positivity you have experienced in small or large ways in 2020.  Tell us of a time that made you feel good, a funny or unexpected encounter, a gesture of kindness received/observed, a hard fought challenge, goals you’ve met, or something reminiscent of 2020.  Examples: Helping home school grandkids.  Survived the toilet paper shortage!  Submit more than one!

 2) We also want to honor those we lost this year, so if you know of any members of Eagle View that passed away in 2020, please let us know.  We don’t want to inadvertently omit anyone, so please help!   

We will publish the “Look Back” as an attachment to the E-Blast to close out the year.                              Please email your sharing statements and the names of those we lost to with “Look Back 2020” in the subject line.    If you don’t have internet, please call EVAC at 303-655-2075.

•    People are advised to stay at home as much as possible.  Gatherings of any size are not allowed.

•    Restaurants limited to open-air dining with only groups of their own household.  Bars are closed.
