Readers say thanks
KDNK and Carbondale Council for the Arts and Humanities (CCAH) would like to give a big thanks to the Roaring Fork community. The Green Is the New Black Fashion Extravaganza was a huge success. The joy of working with such a diverse group of creative people from throughout the valley and beyond was as much fun as the show itself. The generosity of our Green Sponsors: New Paradigm Energy, Sol Energy, Land and Shelter, Carbondale Light and Power, Solar Flair Thermal Systems, The Village Smithy, Jacober Brothers Construction, InPower Systems, Green Line Architects, Peak Party Rental, Shoestring Publishing and Mountain Groove Productions made the whole thing possible. The Town of Carbondale and the Rec Center staff are always good to work with, and the volunteers just blew us away. Even in these hard economic times, it is good to know we can all get together, be creative and produce something that makes our community stronger. Support the arts as they are the HeART of the community!Thanks again. We’ll do this again next year.Amy Kimberly, Ro Mead and Steve SkinnerKDNK and Carbondale Council for the Arts and Humanities

What a fantastic time we had at the 2009 LUNAFEST short film festival, this year on Saturday, March 21st at Colorado Rocky Mountain School. We were able to funds for the Advocate Safehouse Project and the Breast Cancer Fund. It takes a community to produce an entertainment-filled event, and we certainly had a fabulous amount of support. First of all, we would like to thank the LUNAFEST Committee who made this possible: Amanda Brooke; Nina Dattola and Carol McCurry. Additionally, we could not have held the LUNAFEST without our generous sponsors: Alpine Banks, Glenwood Springs Post Independent, Colorado Rocky Mountain School, Alpine Women’s Care, Land & Shelter, Delish-Delosh Catering, Roaring Fork Liquors, LUNA Bars, and Stroller Strides. Special thanks to Monica Rhodes of Colorado Rocky Mountain School.Many thanks to the people who attended LUNAFEST this year. Please spread the word about this wonderful and enlightening short film fest. We hope to see you next year at the movies.LA Bailey, LUNAFEST co-chair, Stroller StridesJulie Olson, LUNAFEST co-chair, Advocate Safehouse Project
