To the Editor:

On behalf of Grand Futures Prevention Coalition, I want to thank the following people and entities for their support of our 4th Annual Ice Box Drop:

Our Sponsors ” Mountain Parks Electric ” Your Touchstone Energy Cooperative, Wells Fargo Bank, Rocky Mountain Surveys, Gambles, and Safeway. Eric and Danya at O2 Creative went above and beyond for us. Thanks for all of your work.

Town of Fraser Board of Trustees and Jeff Durbin, Kirk Klancke and the Winter Park West Water and Sanitation District, Bill and Jeff at Fraser Crane, Todd Holzworth and East Grand Fire Protection District, Annie Oium at NRC Broadcasting, Sky-Hi News for all of the photos and coverage of the contest, Mike Graul for painting and hauling the Ice Box to the pond as well as out of the pond along with our Good Samaritan Bryce Romig, Jeff Pexton and the employees at all of the Grand Mountain Bank locations as well as all of you that purchased guesses including our winners Rhonda Farrell, Cynthia Brunswig and Chris Hill.

I want to say a special thanks to Rhonda Farrell for donating half of her first place prize back to Grand Futures.

I apologize if I have inadvertently omitted anyone. The staff and board of Grand Futures have such a fun time with this event. In case you missed the article in the paper, the Ice Box dropped on Friday, May 9, at 2:36:46pm.

This year, we grossed over $2,400. We hope you have fun guessing and that you will continue to support us in our efforts to create supportive, healthy communities where individuals make positive lifestyle choices.
