To the Roaring Fork and Basalt Community,

Basalt High School Student Council would like to thank you for your support of Yule Fest. This one-day event was a great success this year, and we hope to put it on for many years to come. We would like to thank the community for coming and supporting us by getting into the Christmas cheer.

We would especially like to thank the wonderful artists that came to sell their amazing work. The Aspen Times, Post Independent, The Sopris Sun, and the Aspen Daily News were all very supportive of getting the word out and helping us with advertising.

We want to extend our thanks to Ramona Bruland from Plum TV, thank you for your piece on our event. KSNO Radio and Tri-color Radio, thank you for your support of our event.

To all the businesses around the valley who supported us with banners and posters, thank you, especially Jean’s Printing in Rifle.

The city of Basalt and the Basalt Chamber of Commerce deserve a big thanks for your support with promotions hosting such a jam-packed lineup of community events.

We’d also like to thank the elementary and middle schools for your support, and finally we wish to thank all the parents and students who turned out to make this event a truly community festival.

We would also like to give a special thanks to Ralph Smalley, who did an amazing job helping out with this event.

We would like to especially give a tremendous thanks to Seann Goodman, for all the hard work you have put in for the last two months for this event.

This festival has been a wonderful experience for the school and for our community. We hope to start finding artists for 2011 Yule Fest some time in mid-Spring. Keep your eyes and ears out for more information or feel free to contact us at this high school. We hope to see everyone at next year’s Yule Fest, as we continue this Basalt holiday tradition.

Chapter AO of P.E.O. would like to thank the ladies from Glenwood Springs and surrounding communities that supported our 18th annual Elegant Auction and Luncheon held Dec. 3. Through your generosity we are able to again fund the Girl Scout program “Girls Are Great,” which is available to all Glenwood fifth-grade girls; to provide several book scholarships to local graduating high school girls; and most especially to support Youth Zone’s “Girls’ Circle,” which works with area pre-teen and teenage girls.

Thanks also to the Hotel Colorado for putting everyone in a festive mood with their beautiful holiday decorations and delicious meal.

And on behalf of the 100-plus winners of door prizes, we especially want to thank the many local businesses that so generously provided them.

We also want to thank Abby and Brin at Cook A la Carte for handling our ticket sales.

To all of you that attended, thanks for making this event successful. We look forward to hosting it again next year. See you then.

With gratitude,

Chapter AO, P.E.O.

Estimates about how much water the Upper Colorado River Basin states will use in the future are a problem that needs rethinking, according to the white paper.
