Show your gratitude to fire helpers

Dear Editor,

What an outpouring of help we have all received these last few days. Friends and neighbors who are locals as well as complete strangers who’ve come into our community to help have housed, fed, clothed, and comforted many of us. They’ve worked by hand to clear firebreaks around our homes, to keep traffic flowing, to assess the situation from ground and air, to drop slurry, to keep us informed via press conferences, radio and TV. Now it’s our turn to express our thanks. Officials have said that posters of gratitude and notes of thanks will be welcomed by volunteers as they return hot and tired from their day of work. Come to Glenwood Springs High School where we will provide materials for you to do this. You may also want to help (wo)man the table for a few hours between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. daily. Call 945-8278 or 389-2058 to volunteer.
