AgrAbility client Jackie Weimer was one of four featured stories at this year's Power of Work luncheon presented by Goodwill Industries of Denver (GID). The luncheon is an annual fundraiser at which GID's marketing department highlights selected success stories nominated from Goodwill-associated programs.

The Colorado AgrAbility Project (CAP) was invited to present at the monthly board meeting of the Colorado Farm Bureau (CFB). Groundwork was laid for future collaboration with CFB's Health and Safety Network of specialists serving their respective regions across Colorado.

CAP staff manned booths at rural health fairs run by a Colorado nonprofit 9Health Fair. Response from the public has been strong and CAP staff have used these fairs to network with other local service providers. CAP intends to become added to 9Health Fair's official vendor list next year so that the program may participate in a greater number of these events.

CAP shared AgrAbility information at a resource fair hosted by Cargill at their beef processing plant in Fort Morgan, CO. Cargill's 2000 employees and their family members were eligible to attend and learn more about AgrAbility and many other local services.
