Hofto first anniversary

Bill Hofto and Alison Ryan Hofto are pleased to share the news of their upcoming first anniversary. They were married Sept. 22, 2012, at the Cheeca Lodge and Spa in Islamorada, Fla., and then honeymooned in the Caribbean at St. Lucia and Maui, Hawaii. Bill, a commercial and voiceover actor in Los Angeles and creator of his own insurance business, is the son of Bill and Patti Hofto of Carbondale. Alison is a securities attorney for TransAmerica in Los Angeles, and the daughter of Darlene and Neal Lundy of Tempe, Ariz., and Dennis and Christel Ryan of Crystal River, Fla. The couple resides in Santa Monica, Calif. They plan an anniversary trip back to the Cheeca Lodge and then the British Virgin Islands.

Kiwanis celebrates annual spouses’ night

Kiwanians and their spouses or friends braved the inclement weather to celebrate their annual spouses’ night at Veltus Park on Sept. 10. Among the 55 attendees were members of the Glenwood Springs Kiwanis Club, as well as members from both the Steamboat Springs and Parachute/Grand Valley Kiwanis Clubs and the immediate past governor of the Kiwanis Rocky Mountain District, Bob Garretson from Fort Collins. Several members brought pop-up shelters to protect against the impending rain, which, fortunately, failed to dampen people or spirits. The dinner, prepared by Bill Cooper, Bill Livingston, Jim Setterberg, Ted and Sheryl Doll, Gary Lantz and others, included steak, baked beans, baked potatoes, potato salad, fresh greens salad, cake and ice cream. Although Joe O’Donnell and Bill Swigert arranged for the tables, table cloths, and chairs, about a dozen other Kiwanians assisted in the setup and cleanup afterward. The spouses’ night dinner has become an annual event, eagerly anticipated by all Kiwanians.
