"Walking through the balloon build treated your mind to a world of imagination and wonder. Everywhere you looked, you found something new!
"Not only did I learn about the talented artists we have here in Greeley, but I was stricken by the work that Life Stories does for Weld County. I walked out of the balloon build with goosebumps and tears as every star in the star tunnel represented the 4000 children assessed for abuse each year in our county.
"Merry Makers, our own locally owned balloon shop, helped pull this event together and we'll be contacting them for our next celebration!" —Jaqueline V.
