Great things in Basalt

After spending the past two weekends at some events for Basalt High School, I am in awe of the productions and want to congratulate the efforts of all the groups and volunteers for putting on some great entertainment for our communities.

If you were not fortunate to attend any of these events, I would encourage you to try for next year because they shouldn’t be missed!

The first event being the Hawaiian Luau fund-raiser to benefit the Fields of Dreams. The buffet dinner was fabulous, the music provided by various local, talented musicians was very entertaining and the tropical atmosphere was beautiful.

All of the items donated for the silent auction were wonderful. In fact, almost everything was donated for the event, and approximately $17,000 was raised.

I would like to commend the efforts of the committee and all the volunteers who year after year spend endless hours begging and borrowing from our valley businesses and communities for donations. The word is that everyone had a great time and it was fun for the whole family.

The second event was the school spring play, “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.” It was hysterically funny and very entertaining. I personally saw two of the three performances and enjoyed every minute.

It is amazing to see all the talent in our high school performers. The costumes and set design were fabulous. Again, this kind of event takes endless hours of volunteer time and I congratulate you all.

Finally, I want to mention the success of the BHS After Prom party held at El Jebowl, which is sponsored by the BHS Booster Club. While this party is intended only for BHS students on prom night, we had the largest turnout in its history.

Again, thanks to all the parents and BHS staff volunteers for making it a success (and staying awake till 3 a.m.!)
