Letter of thanks: Progressive Dinner
December 19, 2013
To the Editor:
It was a chilly, snowy and beautiful evening for the 27th annual Fraser Valley Progressive dinner. Participants were able to choose between a walking route and a bus route, and all reports were there were happy, well satisfied people on both. On the evening of Dec. 4, all participants left happy, well-fed and with a good dose of holiday spirit.
We would like to thank all the generous restaurants who donated food and staff to create another successful fundraiser for the Friends of the Grand County Library. All 100 percent of the funds raised will be donated to our Grand County Library District.
Hors d'oeuvres and wine were provided by Fontenot's Fresh Seafood and Grill and DaVinci Modern European Cuisine. The soup and salad course was donated by Hideaway Bistro @ Silverado II and Randi's Grill & Pub. Entrees were supplied by Bistro 28 @ Pole Creek and Strip & Tail. The final sweet touches were the desserts along with coffee and tea enjoyed at Tabernash Tavern and Deno's Mountain Bistro.
The evening ended happily with a visit to Smokin' Moe's to enjoy donated after-dinner drinks and hear live music provided by the Grand County Blues Society. Our grateful thanks also for the bus and driver provided by Beaver Village Condominiums of Winter Park, Colorado.
Special thanks to Laurie Talbott for arranging all the restaurants to carry on this wonderful tradition and to all the participants who bought tickets for this event and joined us for the walk or ride. We owe a debt of gratitude to all the wonderful staff of Fraser Valley Library for helping to promote and coordinate this fundraiser. We hope to see all of you and meet some new friends at next year's Progressive Dinner.
