To the Editor:
To all Veterans and their families, thanks for coming to our recent dinner. Our thanks for your service to our great country.
To the folks who helped, a big thanks. To the Grand County commissioners for their support of the Grand County Veterans and the Veterans Service Office. To Don Dailey, thanks for the cow bell and the set up of flags and banners. Don is truly a dedicated Veteran.
Big thanks to Betty Cranmer for the beautiful prayer. To my granddaughters Jerrika, Mykaela, Morgan, Faris and Kenleigh Jones for help in serving. To Cindy Eller, Brenda Bock, Sara Rosene, Leslie Jones, Kendra Bock and Michelle Jones for serving the food. To Jeremy Bock and Robert Jones for cooking the steaks and braving the cold.
To Cody Lemon who helped me throughout the days in setting up. Thanks to the Widener family Bill, Joette, Cooper and Dawn in helping put away table and chairs. To SYSCO Foods for the steaks. To Kremmling Mercantile for the beautiful cakes, dinner rolls, and cooking the potatoes. A huge THANKS to all.
The Grand County Veterans appreciate you and say thanks. You made the dinner a great evening. If I have forgotten anyone let me know and my apologies up front. It was great to meet many of you for the first time. There were many great topics for discussion. It is my hope you will call or visit to further these conversations. So PLEASE call me. We are hoping for another get together in the fall. Again a big THANKS to all.
