Goodbye 2020, But Grateful

As a little girl, New Year’s Eve was often spent at my grandmother’s house. At midnight, she would open the front door and let the New Year in. It is a tradition I have continued with my family. This year, all of us were anxious to say goodbye to 2020 and let 2021 in with gusto! But despite the sadness and disruption of the pandemic, there was so much to be grateful for—amazing acts of kindness and generosity, successful events, and remarkable people—our Clark Champions.

Clark Employee Champions – Without a doubt, our staff have been true champions, working on the front lines going above and beyond to make sure our residents and families are not only safe and protected but nurtured in mind, body and spirit. Every team pulled together to make sure Clark’s mission was met despite the hardships presented by the virus. You will meet some of these champions here.

The Foundation was also blessed by our Donor Champions who consistently believe in the mission of Clark. We were humbled and amazed by their generosity. Wonderful news to share!

And lest we not forget—our Resident Champions whose resilience, spirit, generosity and grace have been an example to us all. They are the inspiration for all we do.

To all our Champions—residents, employees, trustees, donors, volunteers, and friends, I extend my heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for your continued support, passion and commitment to Clark.

We have said goodbye to 2020 but rejoice in the strength it has given us. We look forward to the light of 2021 and pray for continued grace and wisdom.

Thank you,
