Editor’s note: Send thank-you’s to

Thanks to Summit Daily for keeping us company

During this unusual time, I and others have been trying to deal with the anxiety and boredom that accompanies self-isolation. I just wanted to thank all the staff at Summit Daily News for continuing to write, print and deliver the paper. It is one of the bright spots in my day to walk my little dog, Oreo, and pick up the newspaper from the stand at the bus stop near me. I enjoy the articles, which are informative and sometimes comforting. Even the Summit Daily dog, Sudoku and crossword pages are a temporary distraction to the coronavirus crisis. Keep up the good work for our community.

Thanks to City Market for senior shopping hours

I just went to City Market in Breckenridge for the 7-8 a.m. time for seniors and those with health problems. I was greeted at the door with carts all wiped down and disinfectant sheets. Kudos for all the gentle care given to me!

— Kendra Driemeyer, Breckenridge

Thanks to those working hard on the front line

I want to thank Summit Public Health Director Amy Wineland for her swift action in shutting down this county. It is a thankless job with extremely difficult decisions to make that impact health as well as businesses and jobs, but we are strides ahead of other High Country counties.

I also want to thank City Market employees and all first responders, nurses, doctors and frontline staff in our community. They are heroes for stepping up and being on the front line.

— Deb Evans, Keystone

Thank you to shelter staff for dedication, devotion to animals

I would like to express a special thank-you to the staff of the Summit County Animal Shelter for their dedication and devotion to the animals in need in our community during the COVID-19 outbreak. In order to prevent the spread of the virus, the shelter staff is shouldering all of the animals’ care without volunteer help.

— Lorrie Aslakson, Silverthorne

Thanks to workers, young people from a Summit County senior

So many of you need to be given special thanks for your work in supermarkets, pharmacies and other essential businesses. Also, for all the young people who are practicing social distancing for your sake and also the older population. I was once young, and it must be very hard on you to have all this time on your hands but not have the social gatherings that go hand in hand when you are young. Thank you from this senior.

— Sheila Nevin, Frisco

Thanks to City Market employees for their hard work

I’d like to say a big thank-you to the employees of City Market in Dillon. They have been dealing with merchandise shortages, huge crowds, frustrated customers and possible exposures. In spite of this, they have remained cheerful, helpful and professional.
I for one appreciate it!

— Holly Holden, Dillon Valley
