It is with regret that we are slow to show our appreciation for those who gave of themselves for yet another wonderful Freedom Celebration this past July 4. This was, we believe, the 34th year of celebrating this great country and our great God at Apple Tree in New Castle. This year, as in the past, was a great thanks to the dedicated volunteers who worked hard and gave up their day so that others may enjoy the celebration. The names of these wonderful people are too numerous to mention but hopefully they will know that they are honored and appreciated for their sacrifice. Their devotion to the service of others all for the payment of only a smile is inspiring. We would like to say a special thanks to the Talbott Enterprises and Apple Tree Employees that deal with the added stress and donate additional time and energy so that this event can take place. Thank you to the many sponsors who donated prizes, game equipment and support; Mr. T’s Hardware, Building Supply & Rental Center, New Castle Diner, Hogback Pizza, Johnson Park Miniature Golf, Burning Mountain Bowl, Kathi and Monte Senor, Youth for Christ, New Hope Church. Thank you to the entertainers; Sandra Mollman, Nicole Hope, Everlasting Arms Puppet Team and Rodz 4 God from Grace Bible Church; New Hope Praise Band; Shonna Partain and the Western Slope Stompers, for your willingness to spread joy to those around you. Thank you to our local American Legion Post 164 for your sacrifice for this country and for the assistance in flag raising. Thank you also to the Cub Scout Pack 221 for your assistance also in the flag raising. Thank you to the Garden School for the wonderful food. Thank you to Burning Mountains Fire Protection District and their many volunteers who are willing to put themselves in harms way so that the rest of us may enjoy this celebration of freedom. We and many others thank you for your tireless dedication to keeping our community and countryside safe.Ross L. Talbott, Ross M. Talbott, Russell Talbott

Habitat for Humanity would like to thank the Rifle Fire Protection District for their generous hospitality on July 14 and 15. The Rifle Fire Protection District housed 32 bicyclists that came through town on an across-the-country tour, helping to build affordable housing in 10 cities across the country, including Rifle. The cross-country cyclists (Bike & Build) were able to comfortably spend two nights at Station One, within a mile from the Habitat build site in North Rifle. Everyone from the Rifle Fire Protection District showed enthusiasm and support for this ambitious group of cyclists striving to raise awareness for the affordable housing need across the nation. Thank you to everyone at Fire Station One for opening your doors and providing top notch hospitality to the group! We really appreciated your friendly reception and support of our project.Sincerely, Crystal WannerVolunteer CoordinatorHabitat for Humanity – Roaring Fork Valley
