Friends of the Rifle Animal Shelter would like to thank ExxonMobil Foundation for the generous donation through the Volunteer Involvement Program. This donation will help spay/neuter and provide medical care for the homeless animals at the Rifle Animal Shelter.

The Volunteer Involvement Program seeks to encourage employees, retirees and other eligible participants to actively contribute their time and talent to charitable organizations by providing contributions on their behalf.

A $500 grant is awarded to a charitable, non-profit organization after an eligible participant volunteers at least 20 hours of their time to the organization during a calendar year. ExxonMobil volunteers in the United States donated more than 601,500 hours of their personal time in 2008.

In recognition of these efforts, ExxonMobil contributed more than $7.8 million to more than 4,700 non-profit organizations where they volunteered. Kathy Orr, wife of ExxonMobil employee Sam Orr, volunteered 80 plus hours. Her volunteer hours awarded Friends of the Rifle Animal Shelter (FRAS) with a grant for $2000. Without caring contributors like ExxonMobil FRAS would not be able to spay/neuter and provide the medical care for as many dogs and cats as they have been able to.

ExxonMobil’s generosity is very much appreciated by Friends of the Rifle Animal Shelter and the dogs and cats it will help.

We, the family of Taylor R. Dorsey, would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to the wonderful people of this Valley. We would like to thank Christian and Jennifer of the Miner’s Claim Restaurant for the catering, the staff at the Holiday Inn Express in Silt for taking care of all the out-of-town guests, the staff at Cactus Valley Elementary School for all their assistance with Taylor’s memorial service, to all of our friends who delivered meals to our home, the beautiful floral arrangements, loving cards and prayers.

Thank you, Katherine Palmer, for establishing The Taylor Dorsey Memorial Fund at Alpine Bank. With the donations from this fund we would like to establish a music scholarship.

To our friends, Doc and Beverly, for being a guiding light during the darkest of times. We will be forever grateful to all of you for your continued love and support during this long, painful journey.

Mike and Joelle Dorsey
