Opportunity to Give

Roaring Fork High School Junior class is seeking donations for their drug/alcohol-free post-prom party. We are in need of drinks and snacks as well as cash donations and prizes. If you would be willing to donate, please call Jon Nell Reeds or Barbara Mason at 384-5781.

Thank you,

Jon Nell Reeds


I am a 7th grade student from Glenwood Springs Middle School. I was recently accepted to participate as a member of the Colorado People to People Student Ambassador Program to Italy, Switzerland, Austria and France this summer.

This 21-day program consists of meeting government officials, interaction with other students my own age, educational activities, and home visits with host families. I am currently seeking financial sponsors to help me with my goal, and I would greatly appreciate your support.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower founded People to People in 1956. He believed that if people from different cultures could come together in peace and friendship, so eventually would countries.

Student Ambassadors are carefully interviewed and evaluated before their acceptance. We are excited to share our experience with schools and civic clubs when we return.

The tuition for the program is $5,000, which includes meals, transportation, accommodations and educational activities.

I am asking 50 contributors to donate $100 each to help me meet my goal. Is it possible for you to assist me by making a contribution? I plan to give a speech and share my journal, photographs, and experiences with all of my contributors upon my return.

My program tuition is due April 11. Checks may be payable to People to People Student Ambassador Program and forwarded to me at 1132 Walz Ave., Glenwood Springs, CO 81601. Your generous donation will enable me to share in this wonderful educational experience.

Thank you in advance.

Sincerely yours,

Leah Hubbard
