On May 31, nearly 200 Retired Senior Volunteer Program senior volunteers celebrated their contributions to Garfield County as their efforts in more than 60 of our local nonprofits were acknowledged and highlighted. We are proud of each and every one of them. I know that your life has been touched and improved by their contributions in direct and indirect ways.

I encourage you to review the list of contributors who provided financial and in-kind support to make this yearly event really terrific. You will notice that as you see thanks regularly from area nonprofits, many of these businesses are listed over and over. My personal gratitude to each of you for supporting our RSVP organization and our senior volunteers who work with us ” and for saying a resounding “Yes” each time you are asked to share your blessings. As our volunteers make a difference daily, as businesses, you do, too! Many contributors gave us significant financial contributions, and restaurants offered meals to seniors so they could “go out on the town!” Support from all our communities is simply fantastic. Thank you from RSVP.

I am writing in response to Coach Blake Risner’s letter of thanks to the athletes, parents and community for their support of Glenwood Springs High School’s track and field teams this year. Coach Risner is correct in stating that both the women’s and men’s teams enjoyed an incredible level of success this season.

However, that success would not have been possible without the tremendous level of passion and commitment that Coach Risner and his staff bring to the sport of track and field. So thanks to you, Coach, and your staff, for everything you do to allow our young athletes to realize their fullest potential both on and off the track. The impact you have on our sons and daughters is immeasurable.
