Readers Say Thanks

The Futures Program at Glenwood Springs High School would like to thank all those who contributed to the Futures Stuart Rippy Scholarship fund for the year 2005.

We were able to offer $500 scholarships to two seniors graduating from GSHS who will attend a Colorado institution of higher learning.

This week we are completing the list of generous benefactors to our program. Thanks so much to Mr. and Mrs. Charles Willman and Blue Sky Adventures.

Due to space limitations, the Futures Program will thank the additional generous benefactors next week.

Thank you for supporting the Futures Scholarship program at GSHS. We are most appreciative.

We would like to thank all of the wonderful organizations that donated to the 13th annual Riverside Carnival in New Castle. (Due to restrictions from the paper we are unable to recognize each organization that donated to this event.)

We would also like to thank our countless volunteers who donated much of their time and energy.

Lastly, we would like to thank the New Castle Lions Club for another successful year.

Everyone’s contributions helped to make this year’s carnival a huge success.

The Basalt High Booster Club would like to extend a huge thanks to all the businesses and individuals who helped make this year’s After Prom party such a success. Without their generous donations and time, the event wouldn’t be nearly as popular or successful. We’d like to gratefully thank:

– El JeBowl for allowing the high school continuing use of their facility and for providing free bowling, shoes and music year after year.

– Aspen Amusement for letting the students play the video games all night long for free.

– Strikes Restaurant, Subway, Paradise Bakery and City Market for providing food and drinks.

– The Eagle County sheriffs who dropped by the bowling alley several times and who were out on the road watching.

– And, last but not least, the many, many businesses donors, personal donors, and all the parents who helped chaperone until 2:30 a.m.!

Thanks again for making prom 2005 fun and safe for everyone.

On April 21, Glenwood Springs High School hosted the annual CHSAA District 8 Music Festival. The day was filled with performances by 15 choirs, and 20 bands and orchestras.

Needless to say, such an event requires the contributions of many people. We want to thank the entire faculty and staff of GSHS for their help and support, the GSHS Booster Club for their generous donation of soft drinks, food and paper goods, and the parents who sent food for the directors and judges.

Thank you, Eddie Wilson, owner of Roaring Fork Music, for giving the entire day to instrument repair.

Finally, thanks to our GSHS band and choir students who worked so hard to make the day a success for everyone involved. You continue to make us proud to be your teachers.
