The Silt Heyday Committee would like to thank all the contributors that helped to make the 37th Silt Heyday a huge success. This includes all those who donated financial support, door prizes, and services in lieu of money. Because of you, we were able to provide a hometown celebration. We wish to thank all the people that donated their time for Silt Heyday, including the parade entrants, our parade judges; our booth providers; our performers; local support including the Silt Police and the security volunteers, the Silt Historical Society, friends in the beer booth, the town of Silt employees, and all of the others that helped.We want to thank all the newspapers, radio and TV stations that publicized the event; Harrelson Music, who helped provide our sound system; the Garfield County Commissioners, who provided dumping; and Down Valley septic for sanitary facilities.Thanks to our bands and musicians: Heart of the Rockies, Rocking Horse, Acoustic Mayhem, Steve McLaughlin and Rick Aluise.If we forgot anyone it is not intentional, and we thank you, too; it was difficult to keep track of all the work going on. Without all of this support, we could not have done it. Silt Heyday Committee: Alice Boulton, John McLaughlin, Ricky McLaughlin, Joan Nestor, Kim Price, Peggy Swank and Susie Wright

We would like to thank everyone who attended Dow Rippy and John Ragle’s 50th birthday party on Saturday, Aug. 12. They were both surprised and shocked that we could plan a party like this and gather so many friends and family without their knowledge. We had a blast. We also want to thank Bo Balcomb and his staff at the New Castle SuperBowl for their help, wonderful eats and professional service!Thanks to Derringer for entertaining us. They were awesome, and thanks to John and Dow’s parents for putting up with them long enough so that they could bless the lives of their family and friends. Happy birthday Rags and Jed, from all of us.Lisa Ragle, Kathy Rippy and Bruce Arbaney
