Readers Say Thanks
American Legion Post 83 of Glenwood Springs would like to thank the following entities for making the 2011 Memorial Day Ceremony such a success. Without the assistance of Boy Scout Troop 225, the Glenwood Springs Noon Rotary, and about 10 volunteers from the general public, the 500-some flags would have been difficult to have gotten posted at gravesites in a timely manner. Thank you to City Market and Pat LeVan for the water and snacks provided that afternoon. We appreciate the following who spoke, sang, and played for Monday’s celebration: Pastor Jeff Carlson, Mr. Bob Moore, Ms. Angela Black, Col. Karl Oelke, Ms. Catherine Zimney and Mr. Walter Gora. Thank you to the Ladies Auxiliaries and Scout Troop 225 for posting the wreaths and colors respectively. Appreciation is given to the Glenwood Springs Post Independent, especially Kelley Cox photographer and John Colson reporter, and KMTS for their continued coverage. We thank Louie Girardot who rescued us at the last minute by providing his sound system.However, most of all, we appreciate the approximate 150 individuals in the audience who came out to honor the fallen veterans.Dan E.

This is just a short thank you to any and all who participated and contributed to the success of this year’s Silt Historical Society Chautauqua, on Friday, May 13, and Saturday, May 14. We always have the school children attend on Friday, and they weren’t disappointed. They were able to “help” sew a quilt that the quilting club was working on, watched the blacksmith wield his mighty hammer, watched the flint knapper create arrowheads and stone tool heads the way the Indians did, helped to create real butter, and then got to taste it on woodstove-baked bread. They watched how candles were created by dipping it over and over again in hot wax, and experienced what a classroom was like at the turn of the 20th Century. Let’s not forget the mountain man who set up his teepee and pelts and explained how to live before the settlers came. Again, thank you.Fran ThrowerSilt

Policy that dictates what for-profit activities should be officially sanctioned within Glenwood Springs parks is being reviewed by city staff and will likely come before the city council for final approval later this summer.
