All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them. — Walt Disney

Remember, as someone who lives, works, and/or plays in Wheat Ridge—you are Localworks—and we simply could not fulfill our mission without you. As we jump feet first into our busy second quarter of 2019, I invite you to take a moment to reflect with us on the success of last year.

I am proud to share with you our 2018 Annual Report —look what we accomplished together! With your continued dreams, courage, and support, I anticipate even more community connection, engagement, and growth in 2019.

With gratitude,

Krista Lewis, Executive Director
