As a sponsor, business person and resident of Carbondale, I would like to thank 5Point Film Festival for making this event happen in our community. I’m not sure people realize how bringing this type of event “stimulates” our economy and in the long run is a huge benefit to Carbondale. Since last Thursday we have had between 600+ and 800+ people converge on our tiny town to attend the event. It was exciting to see people from around the globe find a reason to gather here. They were all over town, filling rooms, checking out our restaurants, shops and businesses. That “stimulus” doesn’t stop when they leave our community. Many visitors are still talking about how wonderful our town is to others who “missed out” on being here in our great town and attending the event. Those visitors are tickling the interest for others to come visit here and for those event attendees, already in their minds next year’s event will be bigger and better. This event is on the level of the “X-Games” for outdoor adventure film makers, and even if you don’t like watching movies, you have to appreciate what this venue is doing for us here. Please join me in thanking Julie Kennedy, Beda Calhoun and Brie Bath for making this year’s Five Point Film Festival a weekend many of us were grateful to have an opportunity to participate in. All the Best,Lynn M. Kirchner

Basalt HS Booster Club would like to thank everyone who was involved with this year’s After Prom event held at El Jebowl. This event was a huge success with more than 130 students attending and $4,000 worth of donated prizes and food. A huge thanks goes out to El Jebowl for providing their facility and bowling for free and to Aspen Amusements for the free arcade games. J Place, City Market and Clark’s Market all donated or provided food at a discounted rate. We are especially grateful to the many, many businesses and individuals who donated money, merchandise and/or time. We wish we could list you all individually. We appreciate the support of our many long-time donors who were unable to give this year due to economic reasons. Thanks to our chaperones who stayed until the late hour of 2 a.m. And we appreciate the Basalt Police Department and Eagle County Sheriff’s Office for dropping by and keeping an eye out on our kids.Kelly Mullane andThe Basalt High School Booster Club
