Readers Say Thanks

I wish to publicly send a very big thank-you to all who helped to make the You Never Can Tell fundraisers for Childhelp River Bridge for sexually abused children a big success. A heart full of thankfulness to Alpine Bank for being a sponsor, which allowed a group of seniors and students to be our guests, and to our 2008 For the Love of a Child honoree, Jim Calaway. I wish to thank the Wheeler Opera House staff for their assistance and for being so generous to nonprofits in our valley; the chapter members of Childhelp River Bridge who worked so hard (I promise no more four events in one week!); the cast members of You Never Can Tell; all the crew and friends who pitched in to help; Susan Ackerman, our director; the staff of Childhelp River Bridge who are able to help the little ones because you are there supporting the center; the Garfield County commissioners; the Carbondale Aspen Glen Rotary Club; and all those who attended and/or sent donations.I thank you on behalf of the children. You show they are loved and that someone cares.Joyce BulifantCarbondale and Palm Desert, Calif.

Another successful season of Glenwoods Downtown Market has come to a close, and we would like to thank our many sponsors, customers, vendors and fabulous musicians for making it such a great year.Our sponsors and supporters include the city of Glenwood Springs, Valley View Hospital, the tourism board of Glenwood Springs, Property Shop, Gilco, Hotel Denver, Alpine Bank, Bank of Colorado and the Glenwood Springs Post Independent for both sponsorship and fabulous coverage of our market.Our music sponsors were American National Bank, Antlers Motel, Balcomb & Green, Bank of Colorado, Dalby Wendland & Co., Downtown Business Association, Downtown Drug, Gamba & Associates, Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, Juicy Lucys Steakhouse, Main Street Gallery, May Palace, Mountain Pest Control, Neil Garing Insurance, Pines Stone Co., ReMax Country, Stifel Nicolaus & Co. and Summit Canyon Mountaineering. We would like to thank Abby at Cook a la Carte for arranging all of the chefs for the great cooking demonstrations.The regular market season ended with the amazingly popular soup contest and Oktoberfest. Ten professional chefs vied for the soup trophy, which was claimed by John Pataky of Rosis Bavarian Restaurant. Proceeds were donated to our fellow board member Rona Chorman, who is undergoing chemotherapy.At Oktoberfest, crowds were entertained by The Missing Links, Alpine Ech, and the Bavarian dance troupe DMiesbacher Oimtaler. We would like to take this opportunity to clear up a misconception about our being a part of the Chamber Resort Association. We are an independent, nonprofit, all-volunteer grassroots organization unaffiliated with either the city or the chamber. We get no compensation whatsoever, and do it solely out of love for good food and our community.We will see you next June for another great season.Rona Chorman, Skip Doty, Jan Harr, Sharill Hawkins, Sue Kuhn, Erin Lee, Nancy Page and Sue Sharpe, the board of Glenwoods Downtown Market
