Readers say thanks

Dear Editor,

I would like to thank everyone for their hard work and dedication to making our first annual Saloon Night Fund-raiser a success.

Thank you to our table sponsors: Community Bank of Basalt, Isberian Rug Co., Roaring Fork Land Co. and Chase Manhattan. Thank you to our food and band sponsor: the town of Basalt. Thank you to our ad sponsors: Bank of Colorado and Brad Elliott, architect. Rick and his staff at Two Rivers Cafe did a great job with the food and drink and the bartenders and waitress did an outstanding job.

Thanks to the Roaring Fork Golf Club, All Us Ladies, Sally’s Mane Station, Basalt Recreation and the Shenandoah Inn for donating such wonderful prizes. Thanks to KDNK, KMTS, KSPN, the Aspen Times, The Valley Journal, Access Roaring Fork and the Glenwood Springs Post Independent for getting the word out for us.

I would also like to thank Great Divide Music Store and Alpine Bank for selling tickets. A special thank you to all the folks who attended. A very big thanks goes out to Marcus Morton of Marcus Morton Productions and his dealers for providing us with great casino games and to The Doug and Tracy McLain band, who kept the evening lively with their great music.

Another big thanks to the Lions Club for helping with the prize raffle and to Fiji Water for their donation.

We will swing open the Saloon Doors next year with a more expanded event to include Saloon Days as well as Saloon Night.

Diana C. CordovaElliott,


Basalt Regional Heritage Society

The Carbondale Lions Club would like to thank everyone who volunteered and participated in this year’s 9 Health Fair, especially the Carbondale Volunteer Fire Department. It was a near-record day.

Once again, thank you to the Roaring Fork High School for the use of their facility and all of the excellent volunteers who so unselfishly donate their time every year.

Hope to see all of you next year.

(Maybe a yes vote in the upcoming fire election would be a good way to show your appreciation to the fire department and EMTs for their time donated every year.)

Thank you,

Jerry Cheney

Carbondale Lions Club
