Small town living in Kremmling is tough to beat

To the Editor:

I love living in a small town. There were times through the years that it seemed Kremmling got very small and I had thoughts of leaving to be a really small fish in a very large pond. But after bumping elbows with the masses at grocery stores and being stuck in bumper to bumper traffic trying to get home from the city, I decided to stick it out in Kremmling.

I’m so happy I did because where else would one have businesses that donate to a cause that has nothing to do with them. I recently went to several businesses here in Kremmling asking for donations for my 40th high school reunion. I am pleased to thank the following for their generosity.

O’Aces Liquor and the Janson family for a bottle of wine, The Quarter Circle Saloon and Bob Quackenbush for a gift certificate of $30 toward dinner, The Eastin Hotel and Marlys Egge for a gift certificate for $65 for one night at the Hotel, The Fishin’ Hole and Dan and Deb Murphy for a Kremmling Fishin’ Hole hat and two bottles of syrup, The Kremmling Mercantile Liquor Store and Karen and Dave Hammer for a bottle of wine.

I am looking forward to meeting up with old classmates and renewing old friendships at the Aurora Central High School Reunion, but more than that I am most proud to sit and listen to giveaways that came from my small home town. Thank you all for your unquestioning generosity.
