Team Lobato

A great big thank you to Aurora and Ryan Wright of Mud Shaver Car Wash for their gracious hospitality; we could have never done it without your generosity. Many thanks also to Coca-Cola Bottling for their donation of water and soda, and to Kimberly Siler for her generous donation of the cotton candy machine. Our car wash fund-raiser for the American Cancer Society was a huge success. We would like to say thank you to each and every one of you who brought your cars in to get cleaned and for all of our team members who donated their Saturday to help make it a success. Thank you for sharing your personal stories with us how cancer has also touched your life. We will continue the fight for a cure in memory of our loved one, Joe S. Lobato, who we lost to pancreatic cancer Nov. 20, 2008, and for everyone else with cancer. God bless all of you. Don’t forget to join us for Relay for Life, June 19.

Team Lobato (in memory of Joe S. Lobato),

Ashli Stretton, team captain, and Inez Lobato-Winter, co-captain


We would like to thank Connie Prunty, Sue Jones, Terry Roeder, CenturyTel, and all the many others who helped to organize and run a very successful first annual John Jones Memorial Horseshoe Tournament at South Pagosa Park last Saturday, May 30. It was beautiful to see so many people taking advantage of the town’s premier horseshoe courts and fulfilling their purpose, i.e., getting people together for a good time. That’s the beauty of horseshoes that John Jones knew so well. It’s an inexpensive sport that anyone can play and you can take to whatever level you want. The new people you meet, the laughs and good-natured kidding that go along with it are just icing on the cake.

Thanks again, and looking forward to next year,

Stan Ellis, Mason Carpenter, Doug Neuwald, Mike Halverson and Mark Bergon
