Cowboy gratitude

Dear Editor:The Cowboy Up Carbondale committee would like to take the opportunity to thank the town of Carbondale and our sponsors for a successful first year of Cowboy Up Carbondale. Cowboy Up and our beneficiary, Sopris Therapy Services, look forward to your continued support in the years to come. The Cowboy Up event was designed as a celebration of Carbondale’s western heritage for the benefit of a long-standing local nonprofit. Sopris Therapy Services utilizes Equine Assisted Therapy as a tool for working with individuals in need of therapeutic intervention, including serving disabled citizens in our community, regardless of financial status.This year’s Second Annual Cowboy Up Carbondale will be held July 17 under the tent at Fourth and Main. We will once again feature an old fashioned BBQ, western themed dance with music from Adam Ashley, along with fire truck rides and pony painting activities for the kids! The kids events will run from 5-6:30 with the tent opening at 6 p.m. Tickets are $35 for adults and $15 for the kids and are available at the Pour House, Sopris Wine & Liquor, Aspen Equestrian Center, the Roaring Fork Valley Co-op and the Red Rock Diner. We are excited to be continuing the celebration of our local culture and are grateful for the support of our sponsors again this year.Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you out there on July 17th!Pat Horwitz, Cheryl Pitout, Scott Haycock and Erin BassettCarbondale
