United Way would like to give a big thank you to Dan Appenzeller, Crista Munroe and FolkWest for choosing United Way to be the recipient of tips at this year’s Folk Festival. United Way was presented with a check for $1,039 which will assist people in our community with education, choosing healthy lifestyles and becoming self-reliant. Work by 15 local non-profits in partnership with United Way make these programs possible. The agencies are Archuleta County Education Center, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Girl Scouts of Colorado, Seeds of Learning, American Red Cross, Archuleta County Victim Assistance Program, Pagosa Pregnancy Support Center, San Juan Basin Area Agency on Aging, Axis Health System, Southwest Smile Makers Dental Program, Southwest Safehouse, Colorado Housing, Inc., Habitat for Humanity, Pagosa Outreach Connection, and Southwest Conservation Corps.

Congratulations to Dan and Crista and FolkWest on their 15th anniversary of the Folk Festival.

We would like to thank everyone for the thoughtful cards, phone calls and personal condolences that were given to all of us concerning the passing of our mom, grandma, mother-in-law and friend, Rena Goodenberger. Your thoughtfulness is so appreciated.

Love and blessings to all from the Goodenberger family.


On Saturday, Oct.16, 50-plus volunteers showed up to participate in the “Give a Day, Change a Community Project” on Reservoir Hill.

Special thanks to Bruce Jones of Jones Construction and Kevin Matyniak of Matco Construction for providing heavy equipment and to Jim Miller of the Town Parks and Recreation Department (working off the clock) for supervising the work crew.

We would also like to thank The Buck Stops Here, Pagosa Bakery, Doris Green of Lantern Dancer, Mary Jo Coulehan of the Chamber of Commerce and Ruth Vance for providing lunch for the volunteers.

There were numerous other volunteers who participated and we wish to thank them all.
