THE 2020 COMMUNITY POTLUCK IS POSTPONED,
BUT THE VAIL SOCIAL LIVES ON!
The Vail Social Lives On
Let your mind wander for a moment back to when we gathered at Solaris Plaza on that beautiful September evening for the inaugural Vail Social. Remember the smiles, the laughter, and the engaging conversation as we enjoyed an old-fashioned community potluck dinner. Row after row of colorful tables and costumes and chairs spilling out of the plaza with just about every kind of food imaginable. It was a magical evening where nearly 700 of us celebrated our love of Vail, reconnected with old friends, made new friends, and celebrated our community and our kindred spirits.
We could not wait to begin planning year-two. It would have been today, September 15th.
While the pandemic has caused us to postpone the 2020 Vail Social until it is safe for us to celebrate in greater numbers again, there’s something to be said about the spirit of togetherness the Vail Social rekindled in our community. That spirit has been evident since the beginning of the pandemic with community members coming together to help their friends and neighborhoods in need.
So, until we can celebrate together again, let’s share the value of kindness and compassion and celebrate our community one person at a time. Pay it forward at the grocery store, donate to your favorite local non-profit, check in on a neighbor, support local businesses, smile to a guest, and say thank you to a front-line employee. There’s so much each of us can do to keep the spirit of the Vail Social alive.
Until we meet again,
