A Note from Krista

"Gratitude is the memory of the heart." –Jean Baptiste Massieu

It is that time of year when we celebrate giving thanks to those who have positively impacted our lives. So, on behalf of the staff and board, thank you for your membership, your volunteerism, your participation in our events and programs, and for contributing to the overall health and vibrancy of Wheat Ridge. Together, we have created many memories to hold in our hearts. 

With gratitude,

Krista Lewis, Executive Director
