Elegant Lunch to be served at the Activity Center

Grand Valley NewsMary MooreGlenwood Springs, CO Colorado

The Battlement Mesa P.E.O. Chapter IP is again hosting its Elegant Lunch and Card Party at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, April 24, at the Battlement Mesa Activity Center. This event is much anticipated by many. The hostesses arrange their individual tables with china, crystal and silverware. After the luncheon, bridge or Scrabble or any other table game that the hostess decides will be played at her table. The new Chapter IP president, Lee Allen, believes that all who attend will enjoy themselves. The cost of a ticket is $10. Contact Lee or Francis Rose to reserve your spot.

The Cardinals Booster Club monthly meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 2 in the Grand Valley High School library. This meeting will focus on the final preparations for the After Prom Party, which will be held at the high school Saturday, April 12. We have many fun activities planned for the kids, but could really use more adult help. Big Sky Bounce, the blow-up activities purveyor, will be coming into town to set up three activities for the evening. He is giving us a great price, but we need to assist him with the set-up and take-down operations. We also need volunteers to help us sponsor the event from 11:30 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. We will have plenty of coffee on hand to keep us awake, and it truly is a lot of fun. This year, thanks to Kristen Penner, the gifts that will be given to the kids are really extraordinary. If you cannot make the meeting, but would like to help with this worthwhile event, give me a call on my cell at 309-8589. Thanks for making this a community that cares about the safety of our youth.
