Susan Robertson November Letter

November Presidents LetterEPWC Members: Thanksgiving was an opportunity to reflect on how wonderful it is to live in beautiful Estes Park. My “jar of joy and happiness” was filled to the brim. I hope that you all had a lovely Thanksgiving. My Christmas decorations are up and out and now I’m looking forward to all of the special December celebrations and activities of the season.
