Thanks to Legion baseball sponsors

Playing American Legion Baseball was a positive experience for the Summit High School Baseball Team this summer.

I think the result was exactly what the coaches had expected. The players improved both offensively and defensively and in the end, came together as a team.

The season lasted six weeks and involved a commitment on the players’ part, often to be playing back-to-back doubleheaders held in Denver when the temperature was well over 90 degrees.

I would like to thank The Highlands and Wal-Mart for their donations that helped put this team together. We sincerely appreciate their generosity.

I would also like to thank the coaches, John Padjen and Gary Green for their time-consuming, hard work and dedication to the Summit High School baseball program. I appreciate all you have done for all of the players.

A rummage sale will be held Saturday at Summit High School. The proceeds will help fund a trip to play ball in Austin, Texas, during next year’s spring break.

Please support the Tigers by planning to attend. You never know what you might find.

Fundraiser for

Rob Valdez a success

On July 21, a fundraiser was held for the family of the late Rob Valdez. This event was a stunning success. We managed to raise more than $9,000 for his family.

This would not have happened with out the assistance of David Gesser, Paul Connelly and Candice Sullivan.

I would also like to thank Leon Littlebird, Annie and Travis Holton, Mead Parks and the entire Blue Spruce staff.

My biggest thanks, though, goes to the people of this county.

The small business owners, who are too numerous to name, gave of their time and services to help us amass literally a stockpile of silent auction items.

I also thank the friends, old and new, who came from all over the county to donate, share, laugh and cry. Together, we assembled an event which I will never forget. In saying goodbye, we helped his family and our family here in Summit County grow closer. I thank you all.
