AVCF assists readers

On behalf of the Garfield County Public Library System, I would like to extend our thanks to the Aspen Valley Community Foundation for the generous grant we are receiving for our 2004 Summer Reading Program. Without the continued support of the foundation, we would not be able to offer the wonderful summer programming to the children of Garfield County in conjunction with our reading program. You make a world of difference! Thank you.

Sending a special senior thank-you, happy holiday wishes

Maybe you lent us your hand as a volunteer. Maybe you shared your bounty as a gift. Maybe you shared a pat on the back for a job well done. Maybe you stopped to visit with us on your way through town. Maybe you donated your service or gave us a special rate. Maybe you became a board member and served diligently. Maybe you made a senior meal extra special. Maybe you helped with the Rotary Blizzard Box project. Maybe you supported our frozen meal program. Maybe you took time to read a grant application. Maybe you were in need and we helped. Maybe you purchased a meal or bus ticket for those less fortunate. Maybe you hugged someone at a Senior Mealsite. Maybe you wrote a newsletter article. Maybe you participated in a special program or presentation. Maybe you took the time to care for the plight of others, and maybe you became a partner in our service to the seniors of Garfield County. If so, please know all here at the Office of Senior Programs offer you the fondest thank-you, and we wish a Happy Holiday season for you and your families.

May the mistletoe be with you!

Valley Dog Rescue gave us an angel

There is talk of angels at Christmas. We adopted an angel in the form of a neglected dog from the merciful people at Valley Dog Rescue.

Instead of putting this traumatized Australian shepherd to sleep, as most all the other shelters (except Aspen) would have done, they gave him TLC and time and found him an understanding home ” ours! We love him, and he is a keeper.

We want to encourage you all to send a small donation to Valley Dog Rescue, Bank of Colorado (Attn. Andrea), 901 Grand Ave., Glenwood Springs, CO 81601.

They have saved 10,000 dogs since October 1987. Times are hard right now, few dogs are finding homes and many get abandoned.

Thank you, Ursula and Andrea, you have made us pretty happy with our new dog, Tommy.

Christy and David Hardy
