The new year is always a time for reflecting on the friendships and relationships we’ve made, the laughs we’ve shared, and the events that helped us create our favorite memories. Let’s look back on the special moments from 2019 that made Reunion more than just a neighborhood — they made it a community.
An Epic Reunion Summer Festival
On a beautiful day in August, we hosted the Reunion Summer Festival with oodles of activities for all-day family fun! For our physical fitness-focused family members we held yoga in the morning, plus other full-body workouts like planking. Those who preferred to take things a bit more slowly wandered through the elaborate corn maze before discovering the talents of the many face painters on site. Our favorite moment? The fireworks display at sunset was an absolutely beautiful way to cap off a perfect day!
Construction of the Southlawn Pool
Summer in 2020 will be an entirely new experience at Reunion thanks to the Southlawn pool! Construction began on both the pool and recreation area in early 2019, and we were delighted to share a sneak peak with our residents in October. What summer memories are you most excited to create in the coming year?
STEAD School Approval
In October, the 27J School Board approved plans for the STEAD School. STEAD — which stands for Science, Technology, Environment, Agriculture, and Design — has a campus that promises a reimagined education for Reunion’s high school student population. This science-based and project-driven curriculum will be student-led, and is projected to see its first class walk through the halls in 2021.
Reunion Farmers’ Market
The Reunion Farmers’ Market brought our residents a cornucopia of local goods from July to October. In fact, the market’s first year was so successful that it was extended an additional two weeks! We cannot wait for next year’s season, though we might have to watch ourselves around Mrs. Davenport’s Sweet Potato Pie.
Trunk or Treat
On October 26, Reunion residents gathered at the Recreation Center for Trunk Or Treat — an amazing evening of costumes, candy, and celebration! Families from across the community came together to enjoy spooky decorated cars, live music and food trucks, and the cutest little ghouls and goblins in all of Colorado.
We held so many events this year that it’s nearly impossible to write about them all! What was your favorite moment of 2019 at Reunion? Message us on Facebook and Instagram to be featured!
