Boy Scout Troop 225 and Venture Crew 225 would like to thank everyone who participated in the weed removal project on Aug. 18: Carolyn Meadowcroft, Lynda Brent, Xavier Loya, Savannah Puckett, Mason Hauptli, Acacia Carmichael, Sabrina Carmichael, Celina Sims and Bob Sims. A hillside above the Roaring Fork River was cleared of Chinese clematis, an invasive species, reducing the chance of spreading it further. Special thanks to our hosts Bob and Marylu Sims for fixing us lunch, to Steve Anthony, Garfield County vegetation manager, for assistance with weed identification, to Lowe’s for heavy duty trash bags, to Coca-Cola Swire for refreshments, to John Roberts and Rock & Ice magazine for the loan of climbing ropes, and to our sponsoring organization, Elks Lodge No. 2286 in Glenwood Springs for ice and ongoing support.Barbara Hauptli, Adult Scout LeaderGlenwood Springs

Our son was married on Aug. 11 at The Gathering Center at The Orchard in Carbondale. It was a beautiful and special day, as you might well imagine. The setting was perfect and everything went as planned. However, it could not have happened without the guidance and support of Scott Robinson, director of the center. Scott was there for it all – before, during and after, going well beyond the call of duty. With a smile and a can-do attitude, he graciously and enthusiastically helped to ensure that this event was perfect in every way for us. A huge thank you to Scott and all of his volunteers for being so accommodating and for making sure everything went smoothly. We have nothing but beautiful memories of that day. If you have an upcoming event, we highly recommend The Orchard. The setting is beautiful and the cost is affordable. You will not be disappointed.Susan and Glen HarrisCarbondale
