I marvel at the health of this valley and hope it sustains. I use the Carbondale Mountain Fair as my barometer and, once again, the Roaring Fork community came through to put on a fantastic fair! The New Frontier theme was represented, as it is in the community, by innovative displays, great organizations and solar panels on the park pavilion. The great thing is these panels are there all year long harnessing energy that we then get to use to produce the fair. It was truly exciting to see the high caliber of local work represented at the Carbondale Council on Arts and Humanities Valleywide Artist Gallery Tent. It was even better to see so many supported it. Most of all, it confirms that the power of human energy coming together to create is an exceptional experience. There are so many people to thank, I could not do it here. But it is important to acknowledge that none of this could happen without everyone giving what they can. It makes me love this community even more than I already do. This event happens every year because of the Carbondale Council on Arts and Humanities. It raises money for their arts programming year round, but they also give that back tenfold by supporting First Fridays, to the Carbondale Concert Series, to Arts Education in the schools. They are a membership organization, which depends on support. I hope all who enjoyed the fair take a moment to check out CCAH. The town of Carbondale gives support throughout the year. Thanks to police, public works, town trustees and town staff for being there when we need them! I also want to give a big shout out to KDNK Community Radio, which broadcasts the fair all weekend long so that many near and far can participate without being there. What a gift to have a local radio station that will do this and do it for free! Thanks again to the healthy community we live in. Now the big challenge is how can we get the rest of the world to work like this?Amy Kimberly, fair directorCarbondale
