Thirty-five Glenwood Springs Noon Rotary Club members served nearly 900 guests a pancake breakfast for Father’s Day during Strawberry Days.

Noon Rotary would like to thank the community for its enthusiastic support of this fundraiser. The club raised more than $5,000 for local scholarships. Success would not be possible without the participation of our major sponsors: Village Inn, McDonald’s of Glenwood Springs, Gran Farnum Printing, Bethel Party Rentals, Glenwood Springs Post Independent, Alpine Bank and True Brew Coffee.

In addition, 26 individuals and local business owners were ticket sponsors, allowing us to give out several hundred free breakfast tickets during the Strawberry Days parade.

Together, the three Glenwood Rotary Clubs grant more than 20 scholarships annually to Glenwood Springs High School seniors. Glenwood Noon Rotary honors students with a Student of the Month program. Other examples of local beneficiaries are: YouthZone, Literacy Outreach, out- and inbound exchange students and the Community Garden.

Thank you, Glenwood Springs, for another terrific Strawberry Days pancake breakfast fundraiser.

To the Citizens of Glenwood Springs,

A tragedy has occurred during the course of YouthZone’s Kiss N’ Squeal which we would like to bring to the public’s attention and to the attention of all pig lovers.

There has been a kidnapping of seven little piggies from The Property Shop fence sometime during the morning hours on Wednesday, July 27. The pigs have not been spotted in the past 24 hours at the market, at home, or eating roast beef and concern is growing great that they may be bacon at this point in time. We feel assured that if the pigs were able and well, they would be oinkin’ and crying wee-wee-wee all the way home to The Property Shop.

We are making a plea to the community for any information leading to the recovery and subsequent apprehension of the perpetrators of this heinous piggy crime.

Please help us find our beloved Pigs on a Stick by contacting The Property Shop or YouthZone with any pig sightings or information.
