Grand County Blues Society thanks all for pitching in on carnival float

To the Editor:

The Grand County Blues Society wants to thank all the people and kids that made our Mary Jane Birthday Winter Carnival float the best ever.

First we need to thank Eric and Jared at Alpine Lumber for the use of their big flatbed. And for their best driver in Grand County, Craig Hardman, who helped us decorate all day as well. Alpine Lumber is always helping us with the kid programs.

We really need to say thanks to the band ” these kids played their hearts out, Noah Ralph on drums, Zak Torpe or guitar and vocals ,Sean Kerber on bass. These kids had one lesson from Yaniv Salzberg and they were off and running. Thanks to Timberline Video for the great Youtube upload and all the great video.

Thanks to all their parents and grandparents for getting them to the gig on time. Also, big thanks to all those “little blues brothers and sisters” who dressed up and led the parade. Their parents were great help.

Of course thanks to the board of the GCBS for getting it all together, Maria, Bill, Pamela, Dave, Kari Jo. And our new pal Marty from Antartica, his cold weather training was invaluable. Thanks to Marci at Radio Shack for all the power.

The work we do with the kids of Grand County is very dear to us and being with all these precious kids Saturday was just another reason why it’s part of our mission.

Also, thanks to the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce for organizing another family event. What a way to spend a winter night.
