Letter of thanks


To the Editor:

Granby Playdays Preschool raised a little more than $4,000 during its annual fundraising dinner and social night at Brickhouse 40 in Granby. The event brought together a wide range of people from Granby, Grand Lake, Hot Sulphur Springs and Fraser. Thanks to all who attended and to Dino Kaplanis for offering the use of his fine establishment, Brickhouse 40. I’d like to offer a special thanks to Ted Reade, who did a great job of organizing this year’s event.
