The Harlem Ambassadors Basketball Team recently visited Glenwood Springs and played a very entertaining game with our Lions Express All-Stars. The visitors provided an evening of fun while demonstrating their high level of skills on the court. Their message to kids, “Stay in school – stay off drugs,” was an important reminder to share with our young people.The Lions Club would like to thank individuals and organizations for their help and support in making this such a successful event. The funds raised will benefit local high school students this year with college scholarship awards. Other monies raised will help the Lions Club mission of offering assistance to the visually impaired people here in our valley.Our volunteer players, led by Craig Amichaux, were truly all-stars. We hope they had as much fun playing as we had watching them. Our support team of Craig Denney, Carl Ciani, Marni Barton, Mitch Spencer and Dan Chicoine were truly awesome. Thanks for your time and commitment. Our admiration to Cailey Arensman for your beautiful singing of the national anthem.Finally, thank you to the sponsors who donated services, supplies and funds without which this event could not have been such a great success. Walmart, Glenwood Suites, Valley View Hospital and Alpine Bank gave us great help. Community Bank, Dalby Wendland & Co., U.S. Bank, all our local schools and the Methodist Church were also very generous.Thanks also to all the other businesses, sponsors, contributors and the enthusiastic fans from throughout the area.Sincerely,Rob Trebesh, presidentGlenwood Springs Lions Club

I would like to take the time to thank all the parents, board members, and staff who help make Blue Lake Preschool’s annual “Date Through The Year” fundraiser such a success. In the past nine years Blue Lake’s fundraiser has gone from a small school gathering to a gala event. Now a public event, their fundraiser boasts such silent auction items as a Trek bicycle, Avalanche tickets and an Apple iPod. Live music, dancing and food from such establishments such as Kenichi, Smoke and Zheng’s help make the evening unforgettable. This event is always a good time, and it supports early childhood education. I applaud you all, and I hope your event is even more successful this year. To anyone who is interested in attending this year’s event it will be held on April 9 at the Community Gathering Center in Carbondale from 6-10 p.m. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. For more information and/or tickets to the event please contact Michelle or Melissa at 963-4380.Thank You,Christine Bostickboard president, Blue Lake Preschool
