Basalt Recreation Department would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Aspen Elks Lodge for their generous contribution to our programs. It is the goal of Basalt Recreation and Aspen Elks to assure a child’s participation in our programs regardless of financial limitations. With their help, we can provide financial aid to the youth of our community so they can participate in diverse and healthy activities.

The Aspen Elks contribution also allows us to partner with local sports clubs to help create sports opportunities for the valley’s youth. We have been able to help the Basalt Lacrosse Club and aid with the creation of the upcoming youth tennis club starting this spring.

The partnership Basalt Recreation shares with the Aspen Elks scores a winning goal for Basalt’s youth! Thank you.

Russets would like to take this opportunity to publicly thank everyone who participated in our seventh-birthday benefit last month. With your help we raised $1,050 for seven non-profit organizations over the course of seven nights. Russets also gave away $350 in prize money.

We feel lucky to live in and be supported by such a giving community. We are grateful to have this kind of opportunity to give back and benefit our valued area nonprofit organizations.

Although the proceeds may seem humble to some, we are aware that these are difficult times for many and budgets are tight. For this reason we have a deep appreciation for your continued patronage of Russets. We hope to continue to serve the community for years to come.

Congratulations to the Glenwood Springs High School Percussion Ensemble for placing first in last Saturday’s competition at Legacy High School.

Being up against five other ensembles, Glenwood scored 80.8, beating Golden High School, which last year took first at the World Competition in Dayton, Ohio.

Next week Glenwood travels back to the Front Range to continue to fight for their first-place title.

The Percussion Ensemble is a wonderful group of extremely dedicated kids and their hard work shows.

Please show support for this wonderful group and come to the ensemble’s Premier Show at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 18, or Saturday, March 19 at the Glenwood Springs High School Auditorium. You will get to hear the piece they are in competition with and a bunch of other fun stuff. Let the beat go on!

The family of Oliver Diemoz would like to thank the longtime community of friends and caregivers.

Words cannot express our gratitude shown to our family.

Whether it was a phone call, just stopping by, flowers, the generosity of food brought in, the love and kindness will always remain in our hearts.

Even though it probably is not a secret to many people in this area, I would like to brag about one of our local businesses.

Mountain High Paint did a great job of matching an odd green color that I needed for our home. Because it was a patch place on a painted wall, he asked that I leave the color with him and he would have it ready the next morning. He wanted to use the outdoor light to make sure it matched up.

Wow, I cannot even tell where I painted; it matched exactly! I would recommend Mountain Paint to anyone, not only for quality but great customer service.
