JANUARY CENTERRA UPDATE
New Year. New Possibilities. Means new memories for us to create - Together!

Our New Year's resolution is to remain resilient and keep impacting our community in positive ways as we gear up for a bright 2021. Let's continue to work together and do our part to Keep Northern Colorado Open! Let's keep supporting all of our amazing local retail shops and favorite dining establishments throughout Loveland, practice social distancing by spreading love (not germs) by wearing masks, and let's keep expressing gratitude to the tireless teachers and vigilant medical professionals helping to care and serve our growing community.

We are excited to share all the safe and socially distant activities you can take advantage of this winter season. We've got a great February lined up for you too, so stay tuned!

Stop at The Marketplace at Centerra in December
