October 2020
"Start the Conversation" event was a success!
Our first event in September, "Start the Conversation," was a huge success! In addition to a sizable turnout, we received a lot of fantastic input from the community, both in the form of responses to our question-and-answer boards, as well as through conversations. Thank you to our event partners, the Fruita Rotary Club, Lithic Press, and the City of Fruita, for helping to make this event a success!
Filmmaker Michael Crespin made this short documentary about the event!
