N.C. work day thanks

S.C. Romig

Dear Editor,

The Castle Valley Homeowners Advisory Group would like to extend warm thanks to all the folks who helped organize and participated in New Castle’s First (annual) Community Work Day that was conducted Sept. 28. The event was hosted in honor of the ninth annual National Public Lands Day (www.npld.com).

The volunteer crew of residents, city staff and developer employees collected more than a large dumpster worth of old debris and trash from the public open space areas in New Castle. After their taxing but enjoyable morning of work, the workers were treated to a relaxed picnic of brats and all the fixings.

Thanks goes out to partial lunch sponsors Kurt Cross of City Market in New Castle and Ron Fuller of Colorado West Distributing in Glenwood Springs.

The community event was co-sponsored by the Town of New Castle, the CVR Homeowners Association, Cobblestone Neighborhoods of Castle Valley Ranch, New Castle Chamber of Commerce and the Homeowners Advisory Group. The workday is hoped to become an annual event with different open space or public areas targeted for improvements each National Public Lands Day in late September.

To join in planning efforts for an even bigger and better workday next year, call Suzie at 984-0502, Ginny at 984-2972 or Pat at 984-2173.

S.C. Romig
