Fraser Valley Library benefit dinner a smashing success

To the Editor:This year’s 20th annual Fraser Valley Library Progressive Dinner on December 3 was a bit smaller than prior but just as delicious. Diners walked two routes through Winter Park and bus riders took one route and all were said to be totally full and content at the end of the evening.Many thanks to the fine restaurants who donated food and staff to make this Friends of the Grand County Library fundraiser a success once again. Hors d’oeuvres and wine were offered by Carver’s, The Green Olive, and Fontenot’s Fresh Seafood and Grill. The soup and salad course was at Pizza Hut, Untamed Southwest Grill, and the Crooked Creek Saloon, and entrees by Gasthaus Eichler, Deno’s Mountain Bistro, and Winter Park Sushi Bar. And to top off all of that, dessert was at Randi’s Irish Saloon, the Star of India with dessert provided by Mountain Grind Coffee & Bistro, and Mountain Rose Caf. Wine poured at all restaurants serving entrees was generously provided by Verso Cellars. As if that wasn’t enough, all the diners gathered at Smokin’Moes Ribhouse & Saloon to sip after-dinner drinks and hear live music by the Grand County Blues Society with Brad Pregeant at piano.Compliments to Beaver Village Condominiums for once again offering the bus for the riders.Great appreciation as always to Laurie Talbot for getting all the restaurants to be part of this grand tradition, and to Kathy Mikol, Suzie Royce Cruse and Corin Wood at the Fraser Valley Library for all their help. And, of course, to all of you who bought tickets for this benefit and came along for the walk or the ride, we can’t thank you enough. We hope to see you at the 2lst event in 2009.Joan Dardis and Gail FosterFriends of the Grand County Library
