Readers Say Thanks

Rifle Middle School's That One Team went to the state DestiNation ImagiNation competition April 14 and took third place in improvisational challenge. We'd like to thank all the people who contributed financially to make our trip to Denver possible. Alpine Bank, CEO Operating, Wolf Oil & Gas and Little Caesar's Pizza all made generous donations to help fund our trip. We'd also like to thank City Market of Rifle and the many people who supported our bake sale. We would not have made our financial goal without all of you.Since we placed third at state, we qualified for the DestiNation ImagiNation Global Finals in Knoxville, Tenn., at the end of May. Once again we are seeking financial support through donations and fundraisers. Anyone wishing to contribute to That One Team's trip to Tennessee, contact Team Manager Kathy Goodman at 665-6791 or 274-8509.That One Team:Amaris Bouchard, Alex Flores,Kirstyn Folmer, Lucie Goodman, Guidance Johnson and McKenna MacklinRifle
