Readers Say Thanks

I just wanted to say thanks to MRI for putting forth so much effort and time into getting a dumpster into an almost impossible area.

At first it did not seem possible, but they did not give up! General manager Don Connoly, sales rep Tom Boas, and Harold “the genius driver” all came by, checked out the area and made it work.

It was amazing how, for just one small individual, they put forth so much effort.

They were professional, caring and so knowledgeable. Thank you, MRI.

SMG Connections would like to give a big thanks to everyone who helped and attended Marble Fest. The Fest had its biggest turnout to date.

We say thanks to our bands for sharing their talent, to our sponsors and friends who worked so hard to make the festival happen, and to the countless other organizations and people who have supported us from day one.

We would also like to give thanks to the town of Marble for having us in your community. We couldn’t have asked for anything more.

As with anything, there are ups and downs. We are disappointed to report that we had theft of some of our donations occur at the festival this year. There was an estimated $2,000 stolen. This is a hit to us, as we are trying to provide a free festival that brings people together.

We will not let this discourage us, but we must ask for help to ensure that this great event continues for years to come. Please contact us if you feel so inclined to help.

As we look forward to next year’s Marble Fest, we keep our mission to create community through music and art in front of us. Thanks again and we will see you all in 2012.

A big thank you to all those who participated in last week’s Cheatin’ Woodchuck Chase. This race was the last event for the 2011 Colorado River Valley Charity Race Series.

Cheatin’ Woodchuck had a large turnout, with 111 participants. Runners enjoyed a five-mile run or 2.3-mile run/walk through Rifle Mountain Park. The weather was cool, the views spectacular and the runners impressive.

The series has been a great success, with runners raising $8,000 for local charities. One again, thank you participants.
