Coalition grateful for contributions

Dear Editor:

Many thanks to The BLEND Coffee Co. in Carbondale and to Ralph Wanner for the video presentation of Pat and Ralph Wanner’s epic 20-month, 18,000-mile mountain bike adventure from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, to Ushuaia, Argentina. Fantastic photos and fascinating insights!

Contributions from the event were graciously donated to the Thompson Divide Coalition to support their work to protect the special values of this area and to prevent inappropriate oil and gas development.

Many thanks to Ralph and Pat and to the 50-60 guests who enjoyed a locals’ evening and who offer their support to protecting our special places.

Dorothea Farris

vice-president, Thompson Divide Coalition
