Thank you for making Silt Heyday a success

The Silt Heyday Committee would like to thank all the contributors that helped to make the 46th Silt Heyday and Silt Heyday Car Show a huge success. This includes all those who donated financial support, door prizes and services. Because of you, we were able to provide a great home town celebration during a centennial year.

We want to give special thanks to our Centennial Sponsors: Alpine Bank-New Castle, Alpine Bank-Rifle and the Town of Silt; our Grand Sponsors: Columbine Ford, Native American Crane Service, Inc. and Stampfel Construction; our Award Sponsors: American Furniture Warehouse, Berthod Motors, Best Plumbing & Heating Services, Inc, K&K Lumber and Vaughan Construction; and our Entry Gate Sponsors: ANB Bank, Grand River Health and Master Petroleum; as well as all the other sponsors that provided us with the financial support to defray our expenses and gift certificates that were used as prizes for events. We also want to thank all the newspapers, radio and TV stations that publicized the event.

We wish to thank all the people who donated their time for Silt Heyday, including our Hobble 5K race participants, the parade entrants, our parade judges; our grand marshal — Bill Smith; local VFW, American Legion and Silt’s own Cub Scout Pack 220 flag bearers; our booth providers; our car show participants and workers; our horse shoe tournament participants; our farm olympic participants; local support including the Silt Police Department and the security volunteers, Silt Historical Society friends in the kitchen; the town of Silt employees; and all of the others who helped as we celebrated “100 years of community.”

Thanks to our bands Timbermill Music, The Scones and Swerve.

If we forgot anyone it is not intentional, and we thank you, too, it was difficult to keep track of all the work going on.

Without all of this support, we could not have done it.

Silt Heyday Committee — Justin Brintnall, John Brogan, Levy Burris, Chris Classen, Sylvia MacLaughlin, Tracy Masias, Sheila McIntyre, Kim Price, Kathy Strong and Peggy Swank

Timely move for Rifle Thrift Shop

The volunteers of the Rifle Thrift Shop with the Rifle Thrift Shop board members would like to thank the Garfield County Workenders program for all of their help moving us from our previous location to our new location, 102 East Ave.

It was the help of these wonderful ladies and gentlemen that the Rifle Thrift Shop was able to move in a timely fashion. They spent an entire Saturday helping us move household items, racks of clothing and boxes of books. They also trimmed weeds and cleaned around the outside of the shop.

There are no words to express how helpful they were or how grateful we are.
