The year 2020 lived up to at least one preconception – it was unforgettable, though not in the way anyone imagined.

The year was full of unprecedented challenges, requiring Parkites to step up in some way for the greater good. Park City has shown a strength and determination in making the most out of the circumstances, from drive-by birthday celebrations and drive-thru voting to homemade mask fundraisers and socially distanced learning.
