On behalf of the New Castle Garden Club, I would like to express our gratitude to the Riverside Middle School eighth-grade classes of Ms. Jana Price and Ms. Keri Smith.

Under the guidance of Brandon Newton of the New Castle Climate Action Advisory committee, these eighth-graders spent several hours assembling five wheelbarrows for our recent community garden project. The wheelbarrows were donated by Glenwood Springs Chrysler/Dodge.

The generosity of the local businesses has been enormously gratifying and will be acknowledged in a separate letter.

Thanks again to these awesome eighth-graders, their teachers and Brandon for coordinating this wonderful effort on behalf of the New Castle Garden Club’s community garden.

Should anyone desire more information about the New Castle Garden Club and the projects we are undertaking, from the community garden to xeriscaping a garden downtown, to the Girl Scout/Senior Citizen project, please contact Molly Kehoe at 948-7824, Debby Puckett at 230-0479 or Mary Johnson at 984-3577.

Western Colorado Independent Electrical Contractors would like to extend their appreciation to all of those who attended, helped with, competed in and/or donated to the wire-off competition.

Most of all we would like to thank Mitch Miller, electrical inspector from Aspen; Mark Kittle, electrical inspector from Snowmass; and Charlie Terrell, wire-off winner of 2007. They gave up an evening of their time to share their knowledge and expertise with our apprentices by judging our competition. In return, we would like to give them our thanks and a warm round of applause. As well, we would like to thank Jason Busch and his crew at Consolidated Electrical Distributors in New Castle for opening up their facilities to host the event. There are many individuals who put in their hard work and materials that we would also like to thank. All-phase, Valley Electric, Dennis Bayley, and Steve Hiscock are just a few that come to mind.
