The Glenwood Hot Springs Athletic Club recently replaced its free weights with new equipment. Naturally, athletic club members are elated, but so are local high school athletes. The used equipment, totaling 2,000 pounds, was donated to Glenwood Springs High School, where athletes from a variety of disciplines, including football, volleyball, basketball, swimming and more, will use it to strength train for their sport. “Glenwood Hot Springs Athletic Club is thrilled to be in a position to donate these free weights and know this equipment will be put to good use by the athletes at Glenwood Springs High School,” said Mark Volf, athletic director for Glenwood Hot Springs Athletic Club. Volf, Glenwood Hot Springs Building and Grounds staff and Glenwood Springs High School Athletic Director Craig Denney helped crate, load and transport the weights from Glenwood Hot Springs to the high school.

Callie Daniels and Justin Sykes were wed on July 2, 2011. Callie is the daughter of Scott and Nancy Daniels of New Castle and the niece of Bonnie Daniels of Glenwood Springs.

The Glenwood Springs Kiwanis Club and the Glenwood Springs High School got together on Oct. 29 to help Windwalkers build another shelter for its horses. In about six hours, the group set 11 posts, installed dividers and finished about half the siding for the 32-foot-by-12-foot shelter for several horses. Windwalkers, led by Molly Robison, is located near Carbondale and provides equine therapy to help families and individuals with challenges grow and thrive. Windwalkers uses the movement, power and intuition of horses to enhance lives. Both Kiwanis and Key Club focus on helping kids with service projects.
