Cards of Thanks


The family of Bruce Muirhead wishes to thank all of those who offered their love and support to us during Bruce’s final days. Your cards, letters, e-mails, phone calls and visits were most appreciated by him and the family members who were caring for him. To Lisa Hartley and the choir members who came to sing with/to Bruce the week before he passed away, thank you for the love and joy you brought to him at a time when it was most needed! Also, we especially want to thank the Hospice staff and volunteers for their loving, professional assistance during those difficult final weeks. God bless each of you!


Kirk Zellner’s family would like thank the community for their love and support over the past few days. We thank you for your kind words and your prayers and the flowers were beautiful.

We love Pagosa Springs, primarily because of the wonderful people who dwell here.

We are truly blessed to live here.

Ranch Rodeo

The fourth annual Western Heritage Ranch Rodeo was held July 31 at the Red Ryder Rodeo Grounds. The competition showed off the skills of ranch hands and horses and was designed to accentuate the ranching heritage of yesterday and today. “These rodeos are a gathering of ranch families and have become a social function that is more than just competition,” says Erica Valdez, coordinator of this year’s rodeo. “On behalf of myself and the WHRR committee, we would like to thank the following sponsors and donors, without them this event would not have been possible.”
