Memories & Milestones

Post IndependentGlenwood Springs, CO Colorado

Congratulations to the Western Slope Stompers for all of their hard work throughout the summer. They have entertained the community at numerous events such as their fourth annual recital, “Stars in Motion,” the Apple Tree Freedom Celebration, Burning Mountain Days, Silt Heyday and the Garfield County Fair. The cloggers have spent much time working on their routines and love to spread their love of dance with our community.

The characteristics of respect, good manners, courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self control, courage, discipline and patience were alive and well as seven members of the Roaring Fork Valley became black belts recently after a 48-hour test. This year’s members varied in age from 11-48. PRO-TKD Martial Arts Center of Carbondale was proud to tie black belts on Aldo Pinela, 11, Brianda Perea, 13, Nicole Cerdenola, 15, and Todd Burkholder, 48, all from Carbondale, Erick Perez, 16, of Aspen, Elizabeth Robinson, 16, of Redstone and Danny Kapustka, 18, of Basalt and enter them into the prestigious category of black belt, before a crowd of family, friends, martial art peers and distinguished judges. The test covers a wide variety of curricula that all the candidates have practiced as well as many team building, endurance and self overcoming aspects that transform their character and build an understanding of who they are. When they shared their experiences and victories with their teammates at the PRO-TKD Center, their transformation was apparent to all. They have an understanding of the “Do” of Taekwondo, the Way. They have spent many hours of meditation on various topics of life to search deep and understand a piece of their purpose and their destiny.

Edgar and Socorro Hunt of Silt celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary Aug. 19. Please call to congratulate them!
