As we see through all kinds of media, the consensus regarding 2020 seems to be, “Good riddance.” While I understand this sentiment, I hope that we can all find things from 2020 for which we are thankful. I’m thankful for my family, especially new additions, friends, good health, and the fact that I can watch football while I type this. I’m thankful for the dedication of the staff and volunteers at Hollis Adams to helping the Hollis Adams continue to open the world to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We are all thankful for our generous donors who helped Hollis Adams make it through a challenging year.
Now, with a new year, let’s look forward with optimism and hope. We hope to be able to return to some of our usual activities during 2021, including regular outings and dances, the 500 Festival Parade, picnics, the hayride and others. We were able to have our Hollis Adams Mud Run and golf outing fundraisers in 2020 and they will be back better than ever in 2021.
As you are making your resolutions for 2021, don’t forget to resolve to get more involved with Hollis Adams. Volunteer to help out at Hollis Adams Friends, any outing or fundraiser. Share your ideas on how we can improve the organization. Have a happy 2021.
