Many contributed to success of Kremmling’s fireworks show

To the Editor:The Kremmling Area Chamber of Commerce would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors, donors, volunteers and attendees of our 4th of July Celebration – Fire Up The Cliffs. As often happens on a summer afternoon in Colorado, the sky turned black, thunder boomed, lightning lingered and the rain came pouring down causing us concern for what we would do with the 59 donated pies if the event was “called because of rain.” Then 30 minutes before the firemen served the first chicken dinner, the clouds dispersed, the sun appeared and we experienced a glorious, however cooler than normal, 4th of July evening.Thanks to our sponsors: Grand County Colorado Tourism Board, Town of Kremmling and Shake ‘n Burger for making this event possible! Thanks to all who donated pies for our by- the- slice desert sale: Susan Wall & Grand Hair Design, Amy Cordova, Kim Mahana, Sheridan Myer, Twila O’Hotto, Audrey McWorter & Alpine West Business Products, Rosie Stahl & Eagle Summit Reporting, Cliffview Assisted Living Center, Reva Groff & O’Aces Liquor, Becky Miller & Subway, Cindy Hester & Hester Log & Lumber, Carrie George & Omni Real Estate, Janet Schayer, Pearl Burke & Town & Country Insurance, Therese McElroy & Tree House Bed & Breakfast, Bonnie Baseman & Construction Guys, Inc., Georgia Young; Sheilah Jones, Linda Mahon & Grand Mountain Bank, Sharon Young, Paula Belcher, Susan Cassel & Bureau of Land Management, Elizabeth Carmichael & Bear Mountain Ranch, Sara Miller & Red Mountain RV Park, Nancy Davidson; Leslie Jones & Kremmling Memorial Hospital, Irene Wheatley & Renegade Towing, Joe Borjas & White Mountain, Cathleen Molloy & Healthy Eating Healthy Bodies. We couldn’t do it without the help of our volunteers. Thanks for setting up, slicing & selling pies, selling pop and Fireworks glasses; tearing down, and quickly putting stuff back in storage so we could all enjoy the fireworks show.
