DBA Member Appreciation Week Thank Yous and Stories

The Denver Bar Association would like to thank all of its members who attended a CLE, an event, got their documents shredded, their electronics recycled, or who interacted with us on Facebook and Twitter through playing trivia or sharing their stories and their words of thanks.

Those who got involved won fabulous prizes. Congratulations to Jessica Grimes, who won the grand prize—an iPad! Other winners received Cross pens, organic fruit and nut baskets, and leather briefcases. Congrats to Robert Albery, Thomas R. Buchanan, Jeff Burns, Jaci Casey, Jason Cobb, Emma Garrison, Alli Gerkman, Jodi Heltenberg, Esther M. Henry, Elizabeth C. Lewis, Kerri Martinez, Chris A. McCoy, and Tami Sapp.

We loved the feedback we got via social media by asking people to share their #DBAStories and #DBAThanks. Here are a few of our favorites from our Facebook page:

"DBA and CBA staff are awesome! I enjoy reading The Docket and hearing about all the things lawyers and the bar associations do for the community. Great support for Solo in Colo as well. Looking forward to my free lunch this week!" Barb Cashman wrote.

"I appreciate the opportunity to connect with other like-minded attorneys," says Tamara S. Pester.

"The Docket brightens my day! I enjoy learning about what other bar association members are up to—we have some fantastic attorneys in Denver. Plus, the April edition is always hilarious!" Docketeer Natalie Lucas wrote.

"I’m very thankful for the CorePower Yoga discount! The yoga classes are a great counterbalance to a busy practice," Sarah Steinbeck said.

Alli Gerkman writes, " I love that The Docket keeps us all connected. And I love the redesign!
