Full of thanks

Dear Editor:

Once again, I realize how blessed I am to be a part of the Carbondale community. Last Friday night, CCAH was host to Robin Sutherland and Toby Tenenbaum in an incredible concert in the new Third Street Center Round Room. It was really the inaugural concert for the space and it was a knockout. There is finally a real CCAH Center for the Arts.

There are many, many people to thank for the space and for the evening. Of course, the spectacular wood floor that changed the room into this elegant space would not have been possible without the generous donation from Jim and Connie Calaway. Thank you, Jim and Connie, for your ongoing generosity and vision.

Thank you to my many sponsors and volunteers who helped make the evening memorable and possible. Thanks to Terry Skogen and Rick Lawrence for doing the impossible. Thanks to Lee Ann Eustis and Terry Lee, my stalwart helpers. Thanks to Laurel Sheehan for her professional advice. Thanks to Drew Scott of Down Valley Tavern and his wonderful food and Terry Kirk of Sopris Liquors and Wine. A big thank-you to the wonderful donors who helped make our new space possible and, last but not least, thanks to the wonderful people of Carbondale who continue to support us and make it possible for CCAH to keep building community through art.

I love you all.

Ro Mead

director, Carbondale Council on Arts and Humanities
