If there were a medal of honor that could be given to a hospital, it should be given to the staff of Valley View Hospital.

The wonderful smiles and wonderful treatment they give does wonders for those of us in their care. Their smiles made my day, every day that I was there.

We should be proud to have such a kind and caring staff in our hospital. Everyone had a smile on their face for me. Those smiles give everyone a good boost. I truly believe that makes a difference.

If you need to be hospitalized, I hope you have the good fortune of finding yourself at Valley View Hospital. Those smiles will go a long way in helping you feel better quickly.

Thank you, staff of Valley View Hospital

Our thanks to The Salvation Army – InterValley Service Center for sponsoring the Glenwood Springs Percussion Ensemble in the Strawberry Days Parade. Members of the Salvation Army rang their bells while marching with our battery of drummers.

The ensemble is proud to share the Salvation Army’s tradition of providing parade music and their mission of “Serving our neighbors in need from Aspen to Parachute.”

The Glenwood Springs Percussion Ensemble depends upon community support as it develops the musical and marching skills of local middle and high school students.

Rehearsing nearly year-around, the ensemble performs at local community events and provides halftime entertainment at home football games. In the spring, the ensemble focuses on competing at state and national events.

The ensemble’s fundraising pays nearly all the expenses of coaching, competing and maintaining instruments. It could not be done with community support, and we thank you.
