Community support is unmatched

On behalf of our Zeta Omicron ESA sorority I want to say thank you to the Delta County Independent and to the wonderfully supportive community in which we live. We just completed our 45th annual Edge of the Cedars Art show. Hank Lohmeyer was there to take pictures on more than one occasion and all of the results have already been in the newspaper. Pat Sunderland even contacted me to get the correct spelling of the title of Larry Dumler's painting. Unfortunately I was not able to respond before the paper went to press. The spelling was so close that Larry is probably the only one who knows the difference. The correct spelling is "Mama Simba Maasai Mara."
I would like to correct the caption on the beautifully decorated and tasty cake. It was purchased by the sorority from Cedaredge Merchantile to celebrate this 45th milestone. When I said supportive community this includes a number of others. First, the many businesses and individuals who provide the awards for the artists. Second, the Town of Cedaredge that allows us to store our display boards in their facilities and to Katie Sickles who came on Sunday afternoon to unlock the building so we could return the boards. Also, Tom Huerkamp and ProSpace for bringing their truck on Thursday, June l, to move the boards to the school and again on Sunday, June 11, to move them back to storage (especially to the two men from ProSpace who took their time on Sunday afternoon to do so). Lastly, the many artists who entered the show and the community members who came to view the artwork.
