The Visit – Don Colard’s 99th Thanksgiving with Friends


Don Colard is a vibrant 99-year-old in Lyons, Colorado. He was recently mistakenly thought to have suffered an injury, which turned out to be untrue.  So, the local community made up a Happy Thanksgiving sign and brought some gifts to Don to remind him how much he means to the community.  Some stayed with him to spend a little time on Thanksgiving morning with him.  He welcomed the friends with coffee and stories from his life.
