We extend mountains of gratitude and praise to the Glenwood Springs Fire Department for their wonderful service and skill in saving our house from complete destruction when a fire ignited last Friday, during our absence.

Many heartfelt thanks goes to our dear neighbors, H.E. and Carolyn Edwards, who spotted the smoke early that morning.

If it hadn’t been for them and the quick action of the fire department, we would have lost so much more.

So many friends and others we don’t even know have offered so much help, concern and outpouring of love. We are just overwhelmed.

We live in a truly extraordinary community.

With deep gratefulness,

Jan and Keith Giezentanner

What a beautiful day for a run! The 26th annual Turkey Trot at its new location stemming from the Glenwood Springs Community Center to the Wulfsohn Trail system was a huge success. It could not have been accomplished without the donations of numerous entities, plus the time and commitment of countless individuals.

The Turkey Trot would like to extend a colossal Thanksgiving thanks to Valley View Hospital, Glenwood Springs Community Center, the City of Glenwood Springs, US Bank, Road ID, Village Market, Independence Run and Hike and Village Inn for their gracious donations.

In addition, the Turkey Trot wants to share a special thanks to some of our city’s heroes, the Glenwood Springs Police Department, for offering their assistance in a time of need. Furthermore, the event would not have been such a hit without the participation of innumerable, selfless volunteers and 600-plus runners and walkers. Thanks.
