Due to the current state of Emergency in Colorado and response efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, the decision has been made to cancel and postpone Vail Valley Partnership programs and events as necessary, including the May Big Picture Breakfast. This decision was not made lightly, but with a number of presumed positive cases in the region and the highly contagious nature of the virus we are making all efforts to minimize exposure and limit public gatherings.  We apologize for any inconvenience and would like to thank you again for your community involvement and engagement.
