Larry Ebersole: Still a lot to be thankful for in Kremmling
April 14, 2009
The weather for Easter didn’t really remind me of spring, but I suppose it could have been worse. The snow the night before was just enough to make sure the mud hangs on longer. Our dogs have actually started to wipe their feet on the small patches of grass that are starting to appear.
Fortunately, most dogs can’t read but their owners can and hopefully most of them caught the mistake I made last week about the date for the Helping Hounds Clinic.The good news is that the actual date is April 19 for the microchip clinic. It will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. at Brooks Veterinary Services in Granby. The clinic is sponsored by Dr. Mike Brooks and the Grand County Pet Pals, with the purpose of providing microchips that will aid in finding wandering or lost dogs. Part of the proceeds will benefit the Pet Pals, so you are not only helping your pet but a wonderful organization at the same time.
Congratulations are due to Therese McElroy as the Kremmling Citizen Of The Year. This award is given by the West Grand Community Educational Foundation. Therese will be honored at the Foundation’s annual banquet on Saturday, April 18, at West Grand High School. If you didn’t catch the article in the print edition of the paper, make sure to take the time to read it on the Web at http://www.skyhidailynews.com. I think you will find that Therese certainly embodies what makes this area great along with setting an example for us all to strive toward as members of this community. Most of you probably received the mailing about the banquet. If not, you can find all the details on the newspaper’s Web site.
Jumping a little ahead to next month, while I have banquets on my mind, don’t forget about the Kremmling Chamber of Commerce Annual Banquet on May 9 at the Grand County Fairgrounds. This will be a formal affair celebrating 20 years of economic development. It is organizations like our Chamber and members of our community like Therese that remind us there is still a lot to be accomplished even in what are supposed to be tough times. We still have a lot to be thankful for in our community, so please let them know we appreciate their effort and example.
Hopefully, everything will be getting back on track throughout our nation and we can take the time to relax a little during Kremmling Days on June 19 – 21. There will be plenty of food, music and the ninth annual Cliff Golf Tournament. It’s the type of celebration that can remind everyone why we live here.
