the Moose Jaw
I would like the thank everyone who was involved with helping the Moose Jaw celebrate 40 years! First and foremost to my wonderful staff: Frank, Kim, Brian, Jimmy, Karen, Trish and Steve. Also to those who came before. Without you there would be no Moose Jaw. To our mayor and the Frisco Town Council for granting us our very own proclamation for 40 years of being a stable employer on Main Street and for the recognition brought to Frisco for being highlighted as a unique place to eat and greet friends and family. To “Hey Spike” for helping me get the word out of our celebration. To Chris at Silverheels for the delicious appetizers. To the good-looking “guest” bartenders, Jason, Mikey, Andy and Dan. To Steve, Laurie, Johnny and Ju Ju for helping with decorations. To Butch, Mary and Roy for the beautiful bouquets for flowers. To the Amicos, The Katos, Pauly and Tom for the great bottle of champagne. Also, all of you who gave bottles of wine, cheese and gifts. To all the guys in the two bands—you were great, especially my hubby, Jim, who played with an injured hand. To all those who traveled from far and wide to help celebrate and catch up with old friends. I hope everyone had as much fun as Jim and I did. To all the well wishers and party animals- Rock On! Love, Jim and Lynda (Mama Moose).

Art for a Cause
Art for a Cause is an event that Mauricio Meneses, in association with Art Supply Breckenridge, is putting together for the very first year to support Summit County local nonprofits. This year the money collected from the fundraiser will be donated to the League for the Animals and the People of the Summit LAPS, since both of Mauricio and Rob (Art Supply Store manager) share the same passion for Animals. Mauricio explains, “As a Local artist I feel the need to give back and support our community so I decided to create between 35 to 40 art pieces (between acrylic paintings and watercolor cards) all 100 percent painted; and offer out community the opportunity to take home an original watercolor or acrylic for a minimum donation of $5.” All the proceeds for this fundraiser will go to L.A.P.S.
Sunday, Dec. 15 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m., The Summit High School Boys Basketball Teams invite you to join them for a breakfast fundraiser at the Elks Lodge #2561 @ 1321 Blue River Parkway in Silverthorne.
