A hauntingly good time

Dear Editor:

The pumpkin carving contest in Carbondale this Halloween was a hauntingly good time. There are so many people and businesses to thank who made this event possible.

Big thanks to all the creative pumpkin carvers that entered masterpieces into the contest. Thanks to the businesses who sponsored the event: KDNK, Carbondale Chamber of Commerce, Alpine Bank, Downtown Preservation Authority, Miser’s Mercantile, the Pour House, Eagle Crest Nursery, Novel-Tea, Peppino’s Pizza and Otak. Thanks to Roaring Fork COOP for donating the straw bales. Thanks to everyone who helped get the word out about the event: Steve Skinner, Annemarie Zanca, Linda Stanger, Mandy Owensby and Jammin’ Jim. Last but not least, huge thanks to the fabulous volunteers and judges: Camy Britt, Sophia Clark, Hanna Kelly, Kim Stacey, Bob Schappert, Amy Kimberly, Royal Layborne, Lauren Spence.

The proceeds from the pumpkin carving contest benefit Radio Evolution. Radio Evolution is a nonprofit organization that develops leadership, multiculturalism and identity by providing training and opportunity to youth in community broadcasting. We partner with KDNK to give voice to youth in the community.

Radio Evolution is the only organization in the Roaring Fork Valley where youth have an opportunity to regularly voice their feelings and play their favorite music for the greater community. Radio Evolution provides five hours of live on-air programming every week on KDNK in English and Spanish.

Thanks again to everyone who helped with this event. If you would like more information about Radio Evolution, visit http://www.radioevolution.org or call 963-0139. It’s never too early to think of creative carving ideas for next year. See you there!
