Letter of Thanks

To the Editor:

The Grand Lake Fire Department would like to extend our thanks to everyone that made the Chili Cook Off a huge success. We were blessed with beautiful weather and we took advantage of it. Over 40 contestants competed in red chili, green chili and salsa competitions. Hunker Down provided the amazing music that was enjoyed by all. Our sponsors and our volunteers are those that make this event so successful. Special thanks to Sagebrush BBQ for donating all of the food and the Grand Lake Brewery for pouring all of the beer. We couldn’t do it without our co-sponsors, Grand Lake Area Chamber of Commerce and Chili Appreciation Society. In addition thanks goes to the awesome and dedicated Irish Family and Elmer Lanzi for just “handling it,” Blue Collar Equipment for the covered stage, Colorado New Frontier Corporation, The Trailgroomers, the Town of Grand Lake, Peter the Painter, The Grand Lake Gentlemen’s Club, The Trash Company, Susan Dale and her generous company, Intrado, and of course, the volunteers from the Grand Lake Fire Department who give so much of their time. All proceeds from this event go to the Grand Lake Fire Protection District Scholarship and Community Assistance Fund. Please send donations to: GLFPD Scholarship Fund, P.O. Box 1408, Grand Lake, CO 80447.
