A spooktacular event

The City of Glenwood Springs Parks & Recreation Department would like to thank everyone for coming to the Community Center for our Spooktacular Halloween Carnival. It was great to see the little ghosts and goblins participating in family fun on this festive occasion. The following individuals and organizations volunteered their services because they take pride in the simple pleasure of celebrating the energy of youth. It is my hope that they were well rewarded for their efforts with the many smiling faces at the event. To produce the Spooktacular, we joined forces with the Glenwood Springs Lions Club, the Glenwood Jaycees, and the FBLA and EPYCS groups from Glenwood Springs High School. A special thanks to Land Rover Roaring Fork for being our Spookiest title sponsor. It was very festive with the pumpkin orange and cat black Land Rovers guarding the door. Thanks to Dominos for keeping the volunteers fed and happy. Thanks to Wizard Senih for his entertaining predictions of the future, to our MC, Kimberly Henry, from KMTS, and to Rick Tadus, Steve Burkey and Bill Efting for the difficult task of judging the costume contest. Thanks to Jeannine Ford-Artaz and to Paul Vandre at Channel 12 for their promotion of the event. Jeff Warner and Tom Boas shook the money tree and we were buried with prize donations from 38 local businesses. The generosity of these local businesses helped to ensure the success of the event. Thank you all for your generosity. You are the fabric that makes up this fine community. We hope to see you all next year if you dare!Sincerely,Eric BrendlingerYouth Program CoordinatorGlenwood Springs Parks & Recreation Department
