A heartfelt “thank you” to everyone who joined us for The S’More The Merrier celebration on December 15th, 2020! We were delighted to see so many of our community members around our virtual campfire, and we hope you all enjoyed the tunes, the treats, the talks, and the sneak peak at our newest program (more on that next month, for those who missed out!). Deep gratitude to Roy Robles at First Floor Group for the tech wizardry, DJ Ome for the soulful soundtrack, David Pon for the charismatic hosting and s’more-making expertise, Kristin Prukop and Celeste Royer for representing our Board of Directors so well in opening and closing the event, and all of our staff for their behind-the-scenes work to make the evening a success. We were of course incredibly moved by the insights and inspiration each of our honorees offered. Thank you again to Emily Taylor, our 2020 Outdoor Equity Champion; Vencel Alfred, our 2020 Truth To Power Trailblazer; and Jason Morris from Pisces Foundation, our 2020 Community Partner Advocate.
As we begin winding down the year, and reflecting on the alternately heartbreaking and hopeful journey it’s taken us on, we want to express our immense appreciation to our entire community for the steadfast support you’ve provided. In 2020, we more boldly embraced our unique role as an organization modeling and advancing racial justice in the outdoor movement, an evolution in our work that’s been met with resounding encouragement. We look forward to continuing that work in 2021.
Wishing you and your families a safe, healthy, and joyful end of the year.
