We missed out on a couple of Christmas week services at area churches, so here are the details. Rifle’s United Methodist Presbyterian Church will be holding worship services at 10 a.m. today, Sunday, Dec. 21, with the Chancel Choir’s Christmas Cantata. There will also be two Christmas Eve services with carols, candles and communion, including an early family service at 7 p.m. and a late service at 11 p.m.

Christ Community Church of Basalt will also be putting on a musical celebration, “Jesus, Our Deliverer,” at 5 and 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 24. The program will include contemporary music, drama and candlelight worship time.

Rifle residents win rifles

Congratulations go out to the winners of Rifle Moose Lodge #1345’s annual gun raffle. Top prize, a .270 Weatherby with a 3×9 Burris scope, was picked up by Dee Keithley of Rifle; Jackie Welch of Rifle won a .22 Magnum Henry “Golden Boy” and Dan Fears of Wyoming won a Tasco spotting scope with bipod. A big thank-you goes out to everyone who purchased tickets and helped with the event.

Rifle grads make Who’s Who list

Former Rifle High School students Jenny Barker and Schuyler VanEngelenburg are among the 26 Fort Lewis College students to be listed in the 2004 edition of Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges. Barker is a junior art major at Fort Lewis College, while VanEngelenburg is a junior chemistry major.

Campus nominating committees and editors of the annual directory have included the names of these students based on their academic achievement, service to the community, leadership in extracurricular activities, and potential for continued success.

Reese scratches up a winner

Gary Reese of Carbondale walked away $1,000 richer after scratching a Holiday Treasures ticket last week. Spend that holiday cash wisely.
