I want to thank the good people of Glenwood and Carbondale who came to my Food Relief for Nicaragua Potluck last Friday and helped me raise enough money to donate more than a ton of food to the foodbanks in Teote!

Miracles happen, even in the midst of an economic downslide. I have much to be grateful for this morning. Now, I’m off to Nicaragua, where I’m known as don Douglas Betanco de Teotecacinte y Quacamaya.

A big thank-you to the Glenwood Springs Street Department for clearing my street on Old Lodge Road in Glenwood Park of the mountains of snow which had accumulated over the last month or so.

Before the winter break, The Glenwood Springs High School Key Club held a spaghetti dinner at GSHS during the Demon Basketball Invitational. Although there was lots of help from Key Club members and cooperation from the school, the event wouldn’t have been possible without the many generous people in the valley.

Key Club publicly thanks them for their amazing ability to give and not expect anything in return, especially during this busy holiday season. The donors include Printworks, Italian Underground, Florindo’s, Arby’s, Russo’s Pizza, Wendy’s, Glenwood Canyon Brewing Company, Chili’s, McDonald’s, Nancy and Alida Eide, Key Club parents, and all who attended and ate that evening.

With the money Key Club raised, children in Papua, New Guinea will be one step closer to their goal of building a new school so they don’t have to learn in a metal hut.

The Glenwood Springs Elks Lodge had another successful Memorial (Christmas) Dinner Dec. 21, 2008. We would like to express our thanks to all who were able to attend. We saw some new faces, along with a lot of familiar ones.

A special thank-you to Boy Scout Troop #225 for helping to assist in meeting and greeting people and helping with setting up and cleaning up.

A big thank-you to Mildred and Cynthia with The Traveler for picking up people who wouldn’t otherwise have bean able to come out and enjoy the day.

Kay and Phil at the Glenwood Springs Post Independent for getting the word out was a big help in our wonderful dinner.

We hope to see more new faces at our 24th annual dinner next December.

A Happy New Year to all.

Pam Regan, Memorial Dinner chairperson
