Help much appreciated after snowmobile accident

On Jan. 15 I was involved in a snowmobile accident on the Flat Tops, and I wanted to thank all of the volunteers and crew members that assisted in my rescue. You never know when trouble is going to happen, and being properly prepared is of the utmost importance, all of these people had the proper supplies necessary to assist in my rescue from fire starters, space blankets, water, food, splints, first aid kits, and more. These people jumped in and took care of a stranger and were sincerely concerned for my safety. They started fires to keep me warm, splinted my leg, fed me, and tried to keep me relaxed and dry. I want to thank all of you, but I don’t know all of your names. If you were there that day, thank you.

I also want to extend a personal thank-you to the Rifle Snowmobile Club and its members, Dana, John, Julie, Levi, Peter, Claire with the Forest Service, and the Classic Air Flight for Life Crew.

Please remember, if you’re going to be riding a snowmobile ensure that you pack the proper items needed in case of an emergency.

Caravan Inn donates to Habitat for Humanity

I want to extend a huge thank-you to the Caravan Inn in Glenwood Springs.

The Caravan Inn has graciously donated 50 rooms of gently used furniture to our Habitat for Humanity ReStore.

Once again, the ReStore is the recipient of incredible generosity in our community. This marks our first hotel donation to Habitat this year; a generous donation of 50 rooms of furniture is a great kick off to 2017. The donation is also wonderful news for shoppers, who reap the benefit of browsing a range of quality items, for highly discounted prices at our ReStore.

Congratulations to the Caravan Inn, as it has decorated with new furnishings for their guests to enjoy. We sincerely appreciate the hotels in our community who remodel and donate to our ReStore, helping us to generate funds to build more homes for families in need, making a difference right here in our community.

Habitat is in the process of building a new, consolidated ReStore to enable greater re-purposing and has plans to open the store at the end of the year. This store will help us reduce costs, so we can pass along great values.

What a wonderful valley we live in.
