“Everything good, everything magical,  happens between the months of June and August. – Jenny Han

Well, here we are in July. At some point, I suppose we’ll all stop remarking on what an unusual year 2020 is, but I don’t think we’re there yet.  It seemed for a bit that the pandemic had died down, but then we found it hadn’t. Or else some people weren’t following health and safety guidelines and it got bad again. Nonetheless, we’re learning to live with the new normal. Things seem to change on the daily, but a good place to keep up (at least with what’s happening in Colorado) is Colorado COVID-19 Updates: Home. At Tree Ring Digital, we hope you’re managing to have a good summer.  To help you out on that, here’s our monthly roundup of “Thing to Do in Denver.” This month, once again, our list is virtual-ish. 

How else can we help? Does your business need a new website, or perhaps a revamp of the old one? SEO assistance? Marketing materials? 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. 

Try to find some joy this July , and be safe out there!
