A great event for GrassRoots

Dear Editor:

On Saturday, July 16, GrassRoots Community TV held the first GrassGames at Sopris Park in Carbondale. We had a perfect day for games in the grass, barbecue and music. All participants had a great time. We’d like to thank everyone who participated in making this a successful fundraiser for GrassRoots Community Television.

GrassRoots Community TV is embarking upon an exciting new community project: creating a digital media access center and television studio at the Third Street Center in Carbondale. Opening to the public in the fall of 2011, this community media production center is already attracting a lot of excitement in Carbondale. GrassRoots is looking to all local businesses, citizens and non-profits to help make it a successful creative facility.

Thanks to our live music performers: Dave Notor and Friends, Three on the Tree, Casey O’Kane, and The Friendly Dictators.

A big thanks to our sponsors: ACE Hardware – Carbondale, Anderson Ranch, Bravo Fine Catering, Crystal River Meats, Premier Party Rental, Sopris Liquor and Wine, and the town of Carbondale.

Thanks to all our volunteers: Robin Allison, Lynn Aliya, Kathy Baker, Jerry Bovino, Eric Chase, Richie Cohen, Mac Cohen, Janey Gubow, Greg Hensley, John Lewin, Maura Masters, Sandra Menter, Michael Miracle, Mowita Rondeau, Eric Stone, Angeline Thieblin, Jeff Winter, Eden Woodruff, and Scott Wright

This was a great event; we’re already looking forward to next year’s GrassGames. Thank you for supporting GrassRoots Community TV.
