T-h-a-n-k-s for dictionariesLast week, all of our third graders received their very own dictionary from the Glenwood Springs Elks Lodge. These very generous folks came to our classrooms and personally gave these treasures to students to keep. On behalf of Glenwood Springs Elementary School, I just wanted to thank them, publicly. Thank you for supporting our kids, Elks Lodge!Sonya J.L.

Funding was provided by the Aspen Valley Community Foundation, the Friends of the Glenwood Springs Library, the city of Glenwood Springs, and the Xi Sigma Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi. In addition, we received a mini-grant from the state library and many local businesses donated prizes and gift certificates.We would also like to express our thanks to the volunteers who supervised children and handed out reading incentives. La Mision, KMTS, KSPN, Channel 12, the Glenwood Springs Post Independent and Alpine Bank earned our gratitude by assisting us with publicity. Our congratulations go out to all the young people who participated in the reading program! Patricia L. Conwaybranch managerTrotting out her gratitudeI want to thank everyone who came out to support the Fossil Trot this last weekend. Your support for the seniors and Carbondale Senior Housing is very much appreciated.We had a wide age range of participants this year, starting with 9-month-old Teddy Jack Huttenhower, who won in his age category and received his first tooth (a fossil tooth), and 87-year-old Evalyn Masters, who not only won in her age category but also was our oldest participant. They both did the mile race in record time.Thanks again, everyone, for your donations and support. Thanks again to all our sponsors, volunteers, and Jenny Tempest for the great design on the T-shirts. We do have T-shirts left; you can stop by and buy one at Carbondale Senior Housing.Thanks again to all. You make it a fun race. Keep running, and good health to all.Jerilyn NieslanikCarbondale senior housingA grateful guildThe Anvil Points Quilt Guild would like to thank the many people who made our quilt show, Aug. 28-29, a success.To start with were Fred and Bryton Derby, Cliff Herrington and Mike Kostelecky.
