Readers say thanks

Dear Editor,I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who contributed to my trip to Australia with the International Student Volunteer program this summer. All of the individuals, small businesses and companies that supported me, I couldnt have done it without you. It was a life-changing experience for me and I really hope to go back sometime, maybe to study. I would especially like to thank High Tails Dog & Cat Outfitters, Rifle City Market and Keith Cloninger, Rifle Insurance, Glenwood Springs Alpine Bank and Bill Sanderson, Columbine Ford and Lorraine Cloninger, Glenwood Springs Elks, Elite Drywallers, Wingnutz Bar and Grill, Rifle Laundromat and the Karrs, State Farm Insurance, Jays Equipment, Gilco and Keith Gilstrap, and Kum and Go in Silt. I would like to thank my dad and Brenda who helped with much of the organization of fundraisers as well. A very special thank you to Tradesman Electrical Services Inc. and Jim Wirt who made a very large contribution to cover the remaining expenses for the program. Also, Creekside Hair, Connie Webber Gilstrap, and Rita for doing a cut-a-thon fundraiser. Thanks to all those who came to get their hair cut as well. Once again I would like to thank all the individuals who contributed to this great opportunity. This is an amazing community. I know everyone, especially small businesses get hit up all the time and yet many still contributed to my program. I am very grateful to have been fortunate to grow up in this valley and truly appreciate all of your support.Jesse HarrisNew Castle
