Compassionate care and support appreciated

The family of Bill Prehm would like to thank the doctors and nurses at Valley View Hospital, the staff at Heritage Park, and Farnum Holt Funeral Home for their compassionate care and support during our recent loss. Our sincere gratitude also goes out to Sean Jeung for the beautiful service.

April is National Volunteer Appreciation Month

Volunteers are essential to the work we do as nonprofit organizations; they continually help us deliver on our missions, and their service is invaluable to their communities. RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program) is one of the largest volunteer networks in the nation for people 55 and over, and in Garfield County alone 200 High Country RSVP volunteers contribute countless hours of service each year.

Every day these amazing volunteers give of their time and experience to mentor youth; serve meals to seniors; deliver Meals on Wheels; help seniors, the disabled and low income persons prepare federal and state income taxes; help seniors with their Medicare questions; help seniors and the disabled with minor home repairs; stock shelves at local food banks and libraries; and assist at local museums and health care facilities.

We would like to give a huge shout out of thanks to these wonderful volunteers for all they do to give back to their communities. If you would like to join this national network encompassing the communities in the Roaring Fork Valley call 970-947-8462.
