GWS Youth Hockey Association

The Glenwood Springs Youth Hockey Association recently enjoyed a successful fundraiser at the Glenwood Vaudeville Revue. Thank you to John Goss, and all the Vaudevillians, who went out their way to ensure a great night was enjoyed by all the Grizzly Hockey supporters. The Glenwood Vaudeville Revue’s continued support of various organizations throughout Glenwood is greatly appreciated and they are a must see for all visitors to Glenwood!

Thank you Crystal River Elementary staff

With all of the work being done at Crystal River Elementary School this year, I want to express my appreciation for the staff and the principal who spend their valuable time and energy at our great school. I know teachers in general do not get enough credit for the work they do, nor do our administrators. CRES seem to get a bad wrap, but it really is a great place for children to learn and grow. Heather Cremeans has been dealt a tough hand to deal with. The strategies and programs that she has been pushing and implementing have increased moral and test scores for our kids. The RAM KABAM Assemblies is an excellent example of how she is working to bring our school closer together while making it fun. Our school will not change over night, but she has brought us off priority improvement and we are seeing valuable strides in the right direction for the kids who really struggle. Heather also has a great supportive VP in Charla Meyer. Together they represent respect, thoughtfulness, pride, and dedication. I am very thankful that we have the teachers, staff and administrators, and I want them to know that I support them!

Brogan is alive because of you, I’m alive because of Brogan

“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans”. This all occurred 6 months ago. For months now, I have wanted to thank all the people who helped me save the life of my Brogan, Abyssinian Service/Therapy cat, who developed “Fatty Liver Disease”, in his old age and especially Lori Raymond, owner of High Tail’s Outfitters, first for the scholarship financially to assist with Brogan’s medical/Vet bills and second, for the moral support for me to keep on trying when most friends told me to let him die. She came over frequently and assisted me with the Surgically implanted tube feedings as I am handicapped and dependent on a wheelchair for mobility. He had the will to live and is a fighter. Brogan is alive today and as feisty as ever helping me to live independently! There were 3 veterinarians who helped us as well; Dr. Kate Owens, Dr. Lemon and several others who all collaborated together to save his life. Then in September, this year, my oldest son, 38 years old, was killed in Oklahoma and Brogan saved my life during the on-going grieving process. Thank you to everyone all along the way who showed me so much compassion and care. My life just happened while I made other plans!
