Readers Say Thanks

During the month of November, the medical profession recognizes National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, and Gov. John Hickenlooper recently proclaimed November 2011 as Hospice Month in Colorado. Alpine Hospice, serving Glenwood Springs and the surrounding areas, would like to take this opportunity to salute the very special people who work in this field.

Hospice provides a unique blend of clinical, social and spiritual support services for patients and their families. This care adds quality and dignity to the lives of patients facing end-of-life illnesses.

The support provided to families allows them to focus on spending quality time with their loved one rather than on care-giving details during this difficult time. Hospice is also there to support the family after their loss.

On behalf of Alpine Hospice, we would like to say thank you to hospice caregivers for the important work that they do each and every day.

The eighth-grade students and teachers of Riverside Middle School in New Castle would like to sincerely thank Pizza Pro of Silt and the Raine family for their generous support of our fundraising efforts during August and September of this year. Pizza Pro provided yummy cheese and pepperoni pizzas at cost that we were able to sell each Thursday after school.

Also, special thanks to Tim and Alyssa Jacobs for shuttling our pizzas from Silt to New Castle every Thursday. We couldn’t have done it without their help. We were able to earn enough money to support a reward trip to the Ryden Corn Maize at the end of the first quarter.
