Riding Beyond Cancer is a group made for women cancer survivors who want to put balance, healing and self-confidence in their lives again. Women who have been scarred by cancer can refind their strength after they spend a day on the back of an amazing animal and in the beauty of nature. Horses are such powerful and beautiful creatures. Once you understand them, they can give you the strength you’ve been looking for. Riding Beyond Cancer has partnered with Sopris Therapy Service, a nonprofit organization, to bring 24 selected women cancer survivors of Western Colorado together for a one-day horseback riding retreat. There will be a series of four retreats with six participants at each retreat. The retreat will begin with a one-hour meet-and-greet for survivors to tell their stories and make new friends who understand their hardships. The next three hours will include getting to know their horse, yoga and relaxation on horseback, and just being in the saddle. Lunch will be provided. The last hours will be time for journal reflection and a “Survivorship on Horseback” graduation.We hope women who come to this retreat can learn and grow with their horse and walk away stronger than ever and with a new love for life.We need to raise funds for this event to take place. We are looking for sponsors that can help us with the cost of professional staff at Sopris Therapy Services, supplies such as pens, journals, ink and photo paper, food for lunch, and advertising.If you would be interested in supporting Riding Beyond Cancer or participating please contact me at ridingbeyondcancer@gmail.comOliviya DaughertyRifle

The American Legion Post 100 Auxiliary in Carbondale would like to thank everyone who volunteered and played in our 11th annual Scholarship Golf Tournament held Sept. 10 at the Ranch at Roaring Fork golf course. A special thank you goes to all our prize donators and hole sponsors. With all their help, we are able to give a scholarship each year to a local graduating student. The weather was great, the food at the barbecue was delicious and the prizes were amazing. Thanks again to everyone who helped out, and we will see you next year.Amy SkinnerAmerican Legion Post 100 Auxiliary presidentCarbondale
