Thank You Las Americas Volunteers

Club Rotario would like to extend our profound gratitude to all of our volunteers who assisted us with our 15th Festival las Americas on Aug. 28. With your generous assistance, we will be able to further our mission of providing scholarships to our local first-generation students as they pursue their goals through Colorado Mountain College. Your efforts significantly alleviated our stress and labor. Your efforts are the best part of our successful events year after year.

A very special thanks to Anibal Guevara, our volunteer electrician of many years; Laurent Emenaker, our volunteer graphic designer; and Samuel Bernal, our volunteer master of ceremonies for several years running.

Thank you pancake breakfast supporters

I would like to thank all the local support for the help with the emergency responder pancake breakfast and lunch. First of all I’d like to think Talbott Enterprises; City Market in Rifle and City Market in New Castle; Moo’s Place; Farm Fresh Cafe; Cowboy Creations of Rifle; Walmart; city of Rifle for use of the park; Garfield County Fairgrounds for donating the bleachers; Bethel Party Rentals for donating the tents, tables and chairs; Yvonne for karaoke and TJ and Isaiah for performing; Whistle Pig Pepsi in Newcastle and Western Slope Distributing in Eagle; and especially Village Inn for donating food for the benefit — thank you, Linda, so much. A special thank-you to all emergency responders who keep us safe, and thank you very much to all that helped us put this on for our firefighters and policemen.
