Fall fundraiser a success

P.E.O. Chapter IW would like to extend a big thank you to those who helped to make our annual fall fundraiser on Oct. 10th a success. First and foremost, we thank all who purchased tickets and bid on our silent auction items. By doing so, you support our organization and our mission — educating women. We hope you had a good time!

A BIG thank you goes out to some amazing gentleman who donated their time modeling for our calendar, “12 Reasons We Love Battlement Mesa/Parachute,” as well as modeling in our fashion show: Josh Allen, Chuck Curtis, Evan Hoff, Darcy Hurst, Mark King, Sean Reider, EJ Rivet, Leif Sackett, John Shepherd, Lee Smith, Vinnie Tomasulo, and Beau Williams. You were great sports, and we hope you had fun! We would also like to thank Lynn Shore for being the official calendar photographer, as well as Pete Caldwell for putting our calendar together.

The following businesses were also very instrumental in our successful fundraiser: Old Mountain Gifts, Bottle Cap Liquors, Miller’s Dry Goods, Battlement Mesa Golf Course, Christopher & Banks, Herberger’s and Susan Hoover/All Social Matters. Please help to show your appreciation to these businesses by your patronage.

And, finally, thank you to the Grand River Recreation Center for allowing us to use your Community Room again for our annual fundraiser. This is a great venue for us and we look forward to next year’s fundraiser!

Inaugural FF5KFFR race a great success

The Glenwood Springs Elementary PTA and the Sopris Elementary PTA raised over $5,000 for school programs by joining together and organizing a fun and fabulous 5K race on Sunday, Oct. 11th. Over 160 students, family members, teachers and community members ran, jogged, walked and strolled the 5K, which started at Sopris Elementary School and finished at Glenwood Springs Elementary School. It was a beautiful autumn morning, the 5K course took racers along the Atkinson Canal Trail and the Rio Grand Trail for the enjoyment of fall colors and river views. There were dozens of community businesses sponsored, donated prizes and a great time was had by all. Already looking forward to our 2nd Annual FF5kFFR, see you next year!

Thank you for your support

Please accept our sincere thanks to the dozens of family, friends and neighbors who graciously offered their support during the recent illness and death of my husband, Alvin Hansen of Rifle. The visits to the hospital in Grand Junction, making sure the home chores were done, dozens of phone calls, hundreds of cards, flowers, food and attending his memorial service bring warmth to our hearts at the tribute to Alvin shown in so many ways.
