“I heard a bird sing in the dark of December. A magical thing. And sweet to remember. We are nearer to Spring than we were in September. I heard a bird sing in the dark of December.”

Oliver Herford

 

Hello Friends! We’ve been through a lot this year, haven’t we? This is the last “things to do” list of the year for us, and we’ve tried to make it sparkly and festive – we certainly need it as we close out 2020. We’ve included only outdoor and/or virtual events on our list, because we want everyone to stay safe and healthy this season and always. Please mask up and follow guidelines regarding Covid. 

Speaking of the pandemic, things are still changing on the daily, but a good place to keep up (at least with what’s happening in Colorado) is Colorado COVID-19 Updates: Home. Because of the aforementioned pandemic surge, this month’s recommendations are all virtual. At Tree Ring Digital, we want you to be safe and healthy, and we hope you’re hanging in there and managing to find some joy.  

How else can we help? Does your business need SEO assistance? Marketing materials? A new website, or perhaps a revamp of the old one? The Tree Ring Digital team is expert in all of that and more. If you need help bringing your business back to life, or just want to find out what we can do for you, give us a call! We’re working (remotely) to help our clients through this challenging time.
