Women’s Group celebrates “Game On” and “Bronco Mania”

Glenwood Springs Women’s Connection’s annual fundraiser is at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14, at the Glenwood Springs Community Center.

Ultimate Bronco fan PJ Click from Glenwood Springs shares from her heart — her touchdowns, being tackled by life, then jumping right back in the game. Get geared up and wear Broncos colors, a player jersey, a Bronco helmet (we dare you), or a Bronco cap. Program and dinner (catered by China Town) are $15.

There will be a silent auction featuring homemade pies, pastries, gift certificates from many local businesses, jewelry, hand-crafted items, books, cross-stitched artistry, and more. This is the perfect time to shop for Christmas.

Reservations needed by Wednesday, Nov. 13. Call Lesley at 945-8268, or email Kathy at
