Henderhan – Holiday season starts with new grandson

Laurie Henderhan/West Side Stories
Grand County, CO, Colorado

Colton Hunter Henderhan, our 14th grandchild, joined the family last Tuesday, Nov. 24, at 11:36 p.m. He weighed 6 pounds, 14 ounces and was 19 inches long.

All of the family, especially his older brother and sister, Tom and Lauren and his parents Jim and Cassidy, had been anxiously waiting for him to get here. Our happiness is shared by Colton’s other grandparents, Pat and Christie Taylor of Fraser, and Jack and Vickie Apking of Granby, and several great grandparents.

The other grandsons were really happy as they are outnumbered 2-1 by the girls. We spent the holiday with 11 of our 14 grandchildren, and their parents. It was a wonderful weekend with Christmas tree decorating, four-wheeling, and of course eating. Nothing can compare to being Grandma and Grandpa. I hope all of you had as great a start to the holidays as our family did.

The Kremmling Library reopened over the Thanksgiving weekend after a complete remodel. The library hours will be Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesdays 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Stop in to see the beautiful job that has been done on the library building.

The Rotary Club will be sponsoring BINGO night on Wednesday, Dec. 2. The doors of the Extension Hall at the Fairgrounds will open at 6:30 p.m., with the first number being called at 7 p.m. There will be $500 in prize money, and concessions will also be available. All the proceeds from the evening are used for charitable donations by the Rotary Club. Sounds like a great evening of fun.

Tri-River and Ace Hardware are announcing a program to recycle old Christmas lights. If you turn in some old lights for recycling, you can get $2 off of a new set of LED lights, up to three sets. The LED lights are more energy efficient than the old lights and last a lot longer as well.

The money generated by the recycling drive is donated to the Lights for Life program. This group assists families that have children with cancer. This is just one of the many programs to help people less fortunate than ourselves. If you have some old lights around and were wondering what to do with them, call Tri-River at 724-9325 to be part of this great cause.

Friday, Dec. 4, is a regular school day for the West Grand School District.

The West Grand Elementary School will be performing its annual Christmas Programs next week. The K-3 grade program will be on Wednesday, Dec. 9, and grades four through six will perform on Thursday, Dec. 10. The programs will start at 7 p.m. each night, in the high school auditorium. These programs always draw a huge crowd so plan to get there early.

The Kremming Preschool is presenting its Christmas Program on Wednesday, Dec. 16. The holiday program will begin at 6 p.m. at the high school auditorium and will feature a short program of songs that is sure to be very entertaining. Refreshments will be served after the program. Plan to attend this holiday presentation and again, get there early.

This week I am leaving a job that I have loved for the last five years. I have enjoyed working with so many people that I have thought of as more than friends. While I’m not sure what I will doing next, I wanted all of them to know how much I appreciated their friendship and I will miss seeing them every day.

What other people think of you is none of your business.
