Community News & Notes
The public is cordially invited to the dedication of the Cody Brickell/Alec Littler Memorial established at the Glenwood Springs High School on Friday, May 22, at noon. The Memorial is located just left of the entrance to the stadium, in an area that will provide a nice gathering place for students. Both young men, from the Class of 2003, were exceptional both in high school and beyond. This beautiful tribute to Cody and Alec would not have been possible without the help of others in this community. Our heartfelt thanks go to Pam Pine, Tom Betts, Rick Abernathy and his son John, and Jesus Arroyo of Pine Stone; Dannie Fugita, Mark Burner, and Scott Miller of S2M Construction Co.; Phil Long of Lafarge; Joe ODonnell, John Bone, George Morris and Rick Abernathy of the Glenwood Springs Kiwanis Club; Coach Don Miller; Hugh and Molly Macpherson of Glenwood Gardens, the ladies of the No Name Book Group, especially Susan Rice; Anne Stevens, Bobs sister; Fran Orosz of Roaring Fork Rentals; the GSHS Wrestlers; Don Howanick and Russ Hermanson of MPA Consulting Engineers; and of course, Paul Freeman, principal of GSHS and the Roaring Fork School District Re-1.
