Rippy’s attendance made Veterans Day special

We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank Representative Gregg Rippy for taking the time to come to the Colorado State Veterans Nursing Home (CSVNH) in Rifle and speak to the residents, guests and staff who attended the Veterans Day program on Thursday, Nov. 11. He has been kind enough to be our speaker for Veterans Day and Flag Day several times over the past few years. He never tells us he’s too busy or can’t attend and always has time for a little visit with any of the residents, staff or guests who want to talk with him. We appreciate him and his visits.Sincerely, Beth BusterCSVNH Activity DepartmentRifleThanks A-TeamThe SACC Silt Area Chamber of Commerce A-Team would like to thank all of those who showed up to the BAH (Business After Hours) at the American Canopy/WillowWisp in Silt.
