Readers say thanks

We just wanted to say thank you to all the individuals who stopped to help us on Saturday, April 12. We were headed toward Glenwood Springs near Carbondale on Highway 82 when a deer crossed our path, and unfortunately we collided. It was amazing how many people stopped to ask if we were all right and if there was anything they could do to help. A special thanks to the young man and woman who gave my friend a ride to her house so she could get her car.

We are from out of state, and we think the folks from the Glenwood Springs and Carbondale area are just awesome. Thank you all for stopping and coming to our assistance.

The family of Chuck Bell would like to thank everyone for the flowers, phone calls and cards. It has helped us to heal during this trying time.

On May 10, approximately 250 local children, plus their families, came out to Grand River Medical Center to take part in the annual Kids Safety Fair and Bike Rodeo, sponsored by the Rifle Police Department (RPD) and Grand River Hospital District (GRHD).

Children were given free helmets, identification kits, bike checks and lunch. They were also able to enjoy the bounce house, bike rodeo and safety lessons, seat belt convincer and fire truck, all free of charge.

This event would not have been possible without the help of all the volunteers and organizations that gave their time and energy. Thank you to all the GRHD and RPD volunteers. We would also like to thank the Colorado State Patrol, City Market, GRHD’s Dietary Department, the Rifle Fire Protection District, Garfield County Public Health, Rifle Recreation, Rifle Lions Club, Wal-Mart, the Garfield County All Hazards Response Team, Alpine Bank and Chili’s. Thanks to everyone who came out and supported this fun and important community event!
