Readers Say Thanks

The Colorado Rocky Mountain School would like to express its gratitude to all the businesses throughout the Roaring Fork Valley who contributed to our annual Scholarship Silent Auction held Oct. 28, as part of our Family Weekend activities. This year, CRMS received more support from new and established valley businesses than any year in the auction’s history. Through the generosity of local businesses, the auction was a success, with 100 percent of the sales going to CRMS students in need of financial assistance.Thank you, Roaring Fork Valley businesses.Michelle WilliamsCRMS special events coordinator/parent liaisonCarbondale

The City of Glenwood Springs Parks & Recreation Department would like to thank everyone for coming to the community center for our “Spooktacular” Halloween Carnival. It was great to see the little ghosts and goblins participating in family fun on this festive occasion. The following individuals and organizations volunteered their services because they take pride in the simple pleasure of celebrating the energy of youth. It is my hope that they were well rewarded for their efforts with the many smiling faces at the event. To produce the “Spooktacular,” we joined forces with the FBLA, EPYCS, and Latino Club youth groups from Glenwood Springs High School. A special thanks to Roaring Fork Volvo & Land Rover Roaring Fork for being our “Spookiest” title sponsors. Thanks to Dominos for keeping the volunteers fed and happy. Thanks to our Parks & Recreation Commission members Susan Cashel, Donni Cochran and Rick Tadus, for the difficult task of judging over 100 entrants in the costume contest. Thanks to Paul Vandre at Channel 12, The Post Independent and KMTS for promotion and sponsorship of the event. The generosity of 35 local businesses helped to ensure the success of the event by providing wonderful prizes for the carnival games, costume contest and climbing wall competition. Thank you all for your generosity. You are the fabric that makes up this fine community. We hope to see you all next year … if you dare!Eric BrendlingerCity of Glenwood Springs Parks & Recreation DepartmentCarbondalePost Independent, Glenwood Springs Colorado CO
