Two Rivers school indebted to generosity of community

We take this opportunity to let you know how indebted we are by the generosity of this community.

In our first year, families and friends of Two Rivers Community School have donated countless time, energy and funds helping us get our school up and running. Young and old have spent hours working in the beautiful Sound Garden donated by Gregg and Marilee Rippy, which will have a dedication on Mother’s Day weekend.

You might have also seen a large yellow bus running up and down the valley with letters spelling our school’s name. This was only possible due to the generosity of the members from the Roaring Fork Rotary Club who recently surprised us with a large bus to transport our students.

The Garfield County Federal Mineral Lease District also supported us with a recent grant that will allow us to purchase a second school bus so that we can offer transportation for our Colorado River Valley students next year.

Last but not least, if you drive by our school in West Glenwood, you will see the fantastic new fence that provides safety for our students. This fence could not have been possible without the work and generosity of Lowe’s Heroes. Lowe’s provided all materials and built a fence that covers the entire area where our students play. We would like to thank the following Lowe’s workers and other volunteers who gave their time and energy to help us build the fence: Jake McMillan, his wife and his young kids, Chris Palmer, Petra Deegan and her husband, Jesus Rodriguez and his daughter, Jon Pem, Lulu Anggasuria and her family, Gayle Budd, Chris Clark, Chris Yencsik, three members of the Glenwood Springs High School Air Force Junior ROTC members whose names we didn’t catch but who diligently worked all day, and Luis Hernandez and his family. We apologize if we are omitting some very important names that also contributed to build our amazing fence. You know who you are and your work will serve a great purpose.

On behalf of all our families, our board, and staff from Two Rivers Community School, we would like to publicly say muchísimas gracias.
