Grand Olde West days successful thanks to community support


To the Editor:

The members of the Grand Olde West Days committee would like to thank the entire community of Craig and the Yampa Valley for turning out in such great numbers and supporting all of the events over the Memorial Day weekend. We especially appreciate your support in making the street festival on May 26 so successful.

Our committee was brand new to the Grand Olde West Days and we definitely had some big boots to fill. The previous committee had established a twelve year tradition of success and created a framework of activities and contacts which were invaluable to us in planning for this year's big weekend.

Major funding for the event was provided by the city of Craig. The mayor and city council believes in the importance of this communitywide celebration and stepped up to the bat to ensure its continuation. Please don't forget to thank them.

The committee will continue to think and plan for future Memorial Day weekends and will involve all who want to be a part of this fine community tradition. See you next year!

Carol Wilson,

Grand Olde West Days committee member
