The Glenwood Springs Lions Club would like to thank everyone who made the Bronco Basketball Game a very successful fundraising event. We want to especially thank Harvey Telinde and Doug Larsen for announcing the game, Andy Worline and Nick Senn for officiating the game, Jeff Nelson for running the scoreboard and all the Glenwood “Stars” for playing.We also want to give a great big thank-you to all the businesses in the area that supported us with their hard-earned money by buying advertising in the Game Book. Without your support, we would not have been able to have the Bronco players here. They were really gracious to everyone at the gymnasium and Buffalo Valley. Louie Wright says that Glenwood Springs is “paradise” for him and his family.We appreciate being part of a community that supports the needs of families and community. Through your efforts and the bake sale by the Sopris Elementary parents, we raised the funds necessary to pay for the kindergartner’s eye surgery. Thanks again.Dale SnearlyThe Glenwood Springs Lions Club

When Carbondale Trustee Russ Criswell proposed a way for the town to help Mountain Regional Housing, a nonprofit housing developer and service provider, to provide energy efficient, dignified housing to the local workforce, his idea evolved into many innovative solutions to assist the Keator Grove project.I want to thank Russ and all the board of trustees for your extraordinary ability to continue to examine ways to support affordable housing projects and to think creatively and courageously. Your leadership and understanding of this vital need is really heartening, and you need to know how valued it is to Mountain Regional Housing and to the many people in our valley who desperately want to have options for housing.Susan Shirleyexecutive director, Mountain Regional HousingBasalt
