The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony held a few days later was also a very important moment for us. I, personally, had envisioned (and hoped) that Andy would have had a comically large pair of scissors to use to cut the ribbon! But it was still a memorable moment for us. Thanks to the Chamber staff and Ambassadors, the Arvada Fire Department, local merchants, Michelle R, and friends and family who joined us for this event as well.
