LETTER: So many folks to thank …

Thanks for very your recent strong coverage on the school board election, and all the inspiring community stories, particularly the one on folks older than me still headed out with packs on their back!

We’d like to thank all the media, sponsors, volunteers and participants who made our second literary festival a great success in October. Thousands of volunteer hours went into “The Language of the Fantastic,” and food and gallons of coffee poured in from Main Street Bagels, Homestyle Bakery, and Starbucks on 24 Road, while Summit Canyon, Naggy McGee’s and Barnes & Noble, among others, donated fine gifts.

A huge thanks to our co-sponsors, Dept. of Languages and Literatures at Colorado Mesa University, and the two major arts organizations, Colorado Creative Industries and the GJ Commission on Arts and Culture, who helped us bring in authors from North and South America to teach and read in English and Spanish, with a little Ebo, too.

It was grand to have the support of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation, RMPBS, Sprouts, Audubon, Unifirst Mortgage and the Friends of the Library, among other generous local sponsors.

We are grateful to live in a community rich in extraordinary readers and writers who have given much to our cultural lives. Thank you, all.

Sandra Dorr, executive director
