To jog your memory some, here are some 20 year-old facts: the Soviet Union broke apart in 1991 after President Gorbachev resigned. Professor Anita Hill accused Judge Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment that year. Dances with Wolves won Best Picture (Just Googled it and can’t believe how young Kevin Costner looked). The Song of the Year was “From a Distance” by Bette Midler and the album of the year was Phil Collins’ “Another Day in Paradise.”
Did that help? Do you remember 1991 now?
Okay, I’ll admit it’s still a bit fuzzy for me too, so I’ll give you an easier assignment.
To celebrate our 20th we’re asking rural providers to tell us why they love working in rural Colorado, what the word “rural” means to them and, finally, any interesting or especially helpful contact you’ve had with CRHC staffers over the past two decades.
We plan to feature your memories and observations throughout 2011 through our website and other communications tools we utilize.
CRHC is proud to have had the opportunity to serve rural providers and rural Colorado citizens for 20 years, and I am extremely proud to be able to lead this organization into the next 20 years.
Please send your observations and anecdotes (and questions) to Sarah Mapes at email@example.com. And thank you in advance!
