Readers Say Thanks

Once again, the self-funded Glenwood Springs High School girls swim team would like to send a huge thank-you to Berthod Motors for supporting our program. We enjoyed serving up tasty food to your 4×4 Rally participants again this year. It was a fun day, and the proceeds will help us fund our 2012-13 swim season.

Also, a big thank-you to the Rotarians who exhibited excellent grilling skills and patience when the line got long. Their help is greatly appreciated.

We would like to thank the wonderful tournament sponsors, players, local volunteers and, in particular, Ryan Parr and Lakota Canyon Golf Club for all the hard work on the recent Beers, Cheers, and No Tears Golf Tournament for the benefit of Williams Syndrome Association, held Aug. 4.

Mr. Parr and the wonderful staff and owners of Lakota Canyon worked very hard to host another successful tournament, and all the golfers had a very enjoyable time while contributing to the event.

This was the third year this event was held, and the money raised from donations, sponsorships and entry fees helps folks with Williams Syndrome in our valley and across the country by supporting research, family resources and scholarships for WSA programs.

This wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of Lakota Canyon, tournament sponsors and players, and on behalf of Ella Munk, her family, and WSA families across the country, we want to express our gratitude. You are a special group!

I had the wonderful pleasure of volunteering for the Horseback Ride for the Cure at Sopris Mountain Ranch on Aug. 4, 2012.

It was a gorgeous day on an amazing ranch with a terrific ride and an outstanding luncheon.

My sincere appreciation to Sally Sakin who did a fabulous job of organizing this event with Komen Aspen. An enormous thank-you to Celia and Cornelius Dupre for hosting a spectacular luncheon. I would also like to thank and applaud all the volunteers who put their hard work, time and efforts into making this the best Horseback Ride for the Cure that I have attended so far.

My biggest praise must go my 12-year-old ace assistant Elizabeth Looper, who raised the money herself to be able support the Cure and to ride her favorite horse, Badger (thank you, Stephanie Brown), in this event.
