Readers Say Thanks

Great job by Valley Taxi

Many thanks to Valley Taxi for their help getting me to Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs from New Castle during our recent snow storm. I have driven over many passes, on- and off-road, and my driver, Jim, was by far the safest and most experienced driver ever encountered in this business. I-70 was a sheet of ice. It is worth every dollar to arrive safely to your destination, and on time. Thanks for providing your professional service to our community.

Angel Dinner showcases community

We would like to offer a note of thanks and appreciation to all of the local companies and individuals that contributed to the LIFT-UP “Angel Dinner” that took place on Christmas Day at the First United Methodist Church. What an exceptional community we live in.

The Christmas Day Turkey Dinner was for individuals and families in need, and it was amazing to us as to how giving and generous companies and individuals were in contributing everything from cash, to cookies, to turkeys as well as all of the other trimmings that go with the dinner.

With a month to prepare for the Christmas Day event, there was not a single “no” to our numerous requests. Such great company sponsors included Costco, Whole Foods, Target, Safeway, Wal-Mart as well as LIFT-UP Food Bank, the Elks Lodge, right on through to Jimmy’s 66 Station. The business donations were complemented by many members of the congregation of the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Karen Peppers of Feed My Sheep, Julie Gordon’s individual gift packets, and wonderful music provided by Annie Flynn on the piano.

Thank you too, to all of our friends and relatives who donated their time to prepare and serve the food on that snowy Christmas Day. We had more than enough food, and with a little creativity we were able to supply the Glenwood Springs Fire Department with Christmas dinner, send numerous food baskets away for those in need, as well as re-supply the Feed My Sheep facility with more than enough food for its weekend traffic.

A sincere thank-you to everyone that participated and contributed to the event, and may we all have a great entry into the New Year.
