When we read that Bennett Branson didn’t hesitate on turning around to aid our dearest Carlos Ulloa that Thursday morning, our hearts overflowed in gratitude because he showed exactly what mercy means: not just full compassion for who is suffering, but to do anything it takes to help.Carlos well-deserved this act of generosity even if he wasn’t aware of it, because he was already asleep in death. His family and hundreds of friends are very touched and thankful.Memories are God’s way of allowing us to hold on while waiting for the time when Jose Carlos will be resurrected.Norma Panaigua and the Ulloa familyCarbondale and Glenwood Springs

Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley would like to take a moment to thank local businesses and individuals who have given their time and effort in partnering with us in 2011. A special thank you to Encana, which received Business Partner of the Year for 2011. Encana’s continued support and generous contribution supplied four local families with energy efficient appliances in their homes that will run on natural gas, as well as the cost of running the gas lines to these homes. These energy-conscious building efforts are made possible through Encana’s community investment program. Habitat for Humanity’s mission of affordable housing and energy efficiency lines up wonderfully with the objectives that Encana seeks out to support. A big thank you to local businesses: Bighorn Toyota, Alpine Bank, Timbers Resorts, Total Merchant Services, Spring Board, Neil Garing Insurance, Wells Fargo, Young Professionals, Something Sweet Candy Plus & Silt Pizza Pro. Together, we are helping local families realize the American dream of home ownership and self sufficiency.A special thank you to all of our individual volunteers who have donated their time at either the ReStore Boutique and Warehouse or on the build site. They continue to provide a safe, efficient and fun work environment. Volunteers are key to our success in growth as well as helping us make others aware of how Habitat operates. We could not do it without them.Habitat’s work would not be possible without the dedication and commitment of our community, volunteers and staff. Bringing awareness of how Habitat operates and knowing that the ReStore and build site go hand in hand is just as important. Did you know that the Habitat ReStore is a donation-based resale store that provides a variety of household items and building materials to the public at discounted prices? Did you know that from the ReStore, all profits support the ongoing building program of Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley?Come see for yourself how Habitat for Humanity RFV operates. Join the above businesses and volunteers and let us thank you for partnering with us in 2012.Geneva FarrRifle

On behalf of CMC children’s mini college, we want to thank all of the businesses and individuals that made generous donations to our Chocolate Extravaganza event held earlier this month. The event raised over $15,000.These funds will help us meet our operational costs and further the quality preschool education that we have offered families for 33 years. Their support of this child-centered community encourages children to explore and discover the world in a safe and supportive environment. We recognize this investment in our community and we will continue to support these businesses in whatever way we can. Once again, we sincerely thank these businesses and individuals for their contributions and are grateful that they and others are putting children first. We couldn’t have done it without them.Joan ChovanecAnd the children, parents and staffCMC children’s mini collegeGlenwood Springs
