Alta Community Enrichment truly does enrich. From adventurers showing their amazing feats to dancing lessons to providing an outlet for your imaginative artistry, ACE is a vital asset to the Town of Alta. I love going to the events because I know I will definitely learn something new and also have a chance to catch up with friends. Brazilian dance has by far been the most enjoyable. It's an incredible day, ski at Alta all day, break for some drinks and food, and head up to the ACE event to give your hips a good shaking. Just this past summer 2008, I learned about how to make my own cleaners that are safer for your home environment. Each time I make a new cleaner I'm reminded how lucky I am to have the option to participate in these events. ACE has opened my eyes to a healthier lifestyle. I am grateful for the opportunities ACE has given me and for the stronger bonds it has helped me create with the people in my community.
Currently I serve as an advisor on the board (no voting capacity) As one of the founding members of this group back in the mid-90's I am overjoyed by it's sustainability. I specifically choose to remove myself from the board & activities with it for a few years 2000-2004ish. My aim was to see what kind of ability the developing group had to withstand the challenges of surviving, on it's own. Truly an entity of it's own without my efforts, that the community as a whole was helping to shape and provide for its' existence. It is so viable and has met my fledging attempts & desires of its' inception. I am thrilled to witness it's progress thru many challenges. I am honored by the efforts of those who serve, board, volunteers & paid staff. The executive director, Sara Gibbs is outstanding & performs her job well with the right mix of approachability & professionalism. The atmosphere is fun & inviting with a diversity of events that this community responds well to. It is wonderful to see a non-profit succeed and stay on target with their mission.
ACE is a great organization that brings the community together. Events for all ages and genres. In a time when the economy is having hardships - it is nice to have free high quality events available.
