RIDE had fabulous summer session

Riding Institute for Disabled Equestrians had a fabulous summer session this year. Our success is due to the tremendous support we received from the community. Our thanks and hearts go to Comcast, Holy Cross Energy, Sonic, Austin Booth Memorial, Deardorff Foundation, Alpine Bank, A-1 Traffic, Kay Williams family, Leyba family, Columbine Ford, Hiway Feed, Couey family, and many more. We could not have this wonderful program without all of you. The new portapotty built by Holy Cross is the best, and Comcast made the center look beautiful. Sonic gave us a great pig roast (just to mention a few). Our volunteers and riders appreciate it very much. Come see our center, and see what our community created for our special riders.

Thompson House Museum sure to be an asset

The Mt. Sopris Historical Society and board of directors gratefully thanks the town of Carbondale for its ongoing support and final approval of the Thompson House Museum lease. We look forward to collaborating with the town to continue to make the Thompson House Museum available to the public and to secure the resources necessary to preserve this national and local treasure. We hope that our shared vision of an agri-heritage learning center themed around the Historic Thompson House Museum and surrounding grounds will become a great asset for our community.

On behalf of the community, thank you again for making this opportunity possible.

Kind Regards,

Beth White
