Glen Johnson, Tenah Johnson, Christy Darling and Amy Hildenbrandt.League for Animals and PeopleRummage sale a great helpMay I take this way to thank the many local residents who helped raise more than $15,000 for the Timberline Adult Day Services at the recent Summit County Senior Citizens rummage sale.The funds will enable Timberline to serve more elderly clients who need constant care and allow their relatives time for work or relaxation. More than 100 seniors put in nearly 2,000 hours sorting and selling the goods donated by dozens of charitable people.Many local businesses donated goods or services. Food was provided for the workers by the Frisco Safeway, Boatyard Pizzaria and Grill, McDonalds in Silverthorne, Frisco KFC, Pika Bagel Cafe and Bakery,Frisco Subway, the Target store in Silverthorne, Dillon CityMarket, Hearthstone Victorian Dining and Frisco Taco Bell. Gart Sports in Dillonand Great Outdoors in Silverthorne loaned most of the clothes racks used to display the sale items.Jim and Louise Burney donated an SUV which was auctioned during the sale. Center Director Beth Koran and Seniors Coordinator Carol Rickauer put in many unpaid overtime hours and assisted in countless ways.Louise Carter solicited the food donations and many others helped in untold ways. To all these people, those named and those maybe inadvertantly overlooked, I am deeply grateful. The success of the event was due especially to your help.Gale GarrettRummage Sale ChairThanks for the compassionOur best friend, who was always there for us for 16 years, has left us.Recently, my wife called me to tell me that our dog Buddy was thrashing around in his bed. I rushed to him and freaked out because he was a very active border collie and because of that fact could not understand what was going on.Our wonderful vets are next door to us, so I ran across the lot to ask for help.The Breckenridge Animal Clinic and staff left their office to come and help us take Buddy to the clinic. Buddy did not make it but will be part of us for the rest of our lives.With great compassion and help from the Breckenridge Animal Clinic Staff, we someday may be over our sorrow.We will never forget what they did for us and Buddy.Craig and Pamela BarberBreckenridge
