Halloween Happening has come and gone and Roaring Fork Family Resource Centers are happy to report another huge success. In its third year, families and their children had fun showing off their costumes, playing games and listening to stories.

Everyone enjoyed the haunted locker room that Ronnda Kuhr with the Bridges High School students created and Roaring Fork High School students operated. Thunder River Gymnastics provided the obstacle course for active amusement.

Thanks to all of our supporters. Gary and Jo Ann Brown brought their remarkable Halloween expertise and worked countless hours. The Students for a Better World: Emily Bruell, Tavia Teitler and Fiona Laird created the games.

Jen Brewer, Aileen Martin, Pat Henry, Nancy Ball, Merrilee Hindman, Camy Britt, Beth Mulry, Lilly Small, the Willis and Bruell families, Ellen Haas, David Warner, Ivone Munoz and students from RFHS, and YouthEntity YoungChef’s program, all worked together to make this a happening.

David “Krow” Keithley says thank you! You never know how many friends you have until you really need them.

Thanks so much to all of our friends and family for the support and prayers during Krow’s illnesses these last three months. The response has been wonderful. Krow is still in St. Mary’s Hospital, but hopes to be out of ICU soon.

A special thanks to our “family” at the Rifle Moose Lodge and to all of you who participated in the benefit. We love you all.

David “Krow” Keithley, Carolyn Smith and all the Keithley family
