Peter Westcott and his sixth-grade class would like to thank France de St. Phalle for donating $500 towards our class service-learning trip. The money will go to a small Mexican town near Chihuahua.

Although this trip is about helping the community, our class will also be interacting with the Mexican children.

They will help us understand parts of their culture, and we will do the same for them. By exchanging our ideas we will hope to see the world in a new light.

Each day in Ignacio Allende our class will be painting a mural, painting the school and building cupboards.

Our class hopes to help the town and make some new friends.

On behalf of Peter Westcott’s sixth-grade class,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the many supporters of my campaign for Carbondale Trustee. A huge thank-you to all who cast a vote for me. Thank you to all who shared encouraging words. It was a true pleasure to talk with so many members of the community. I strongly encourage continued citizen participation and involvement.

I would also like to thank my campaign treasurer and great friend, Susan Keenan. Thank you to all the supporters who walked the neighborhoods with me distributing door hangers and pamphlets, Kelly Blounts, Tammy Rascon, Susan Keenan, Cheryl Hasselbring, Bruce Hasselbring, Chris Rowberry, Andriane Rowberry, Toni Cerise, Eric Gross and Andy Montoya.

Congratulations to the returning member and four new members of the Board of Trustees. Carbondale has some hard decisions to make in the near future, and I wish you all good will and the ability to work together for the good of all in the community.
