Cards of Thanks


The family of Delphine McFatridge would like to thank everyone for their heartfelt love and support during our time of loss.

A special thank you to Father Carlos Alvarez of Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church for a very personal and meaningful mass of Christian Burial; to the Gudalupanas for preparing a wonderful meal; Lucas Martinez, for the memories brought back in his moving eulogy; Steven Van Horn and Bill Norton for the beautiful music; White’s Funeral Home for their compassion and professionalism; and to Juanita Gallegos and family for their special rendition of the Rosary.

We thank you all with great appreciation and gratitude for the delicious food, flowers, prayers, cards and phone calls. Your generosity and kindness will never be forgotten.

I would like to say something to all the business that have given their time and services to help us support our 6th Grade Football Players and Coaches.

I would like to give a special thank you to The Game Stop, the Homemade Ice Cream shop, located next to the Liberty Theatre, McDonald’s, and The Spa for the gift certificates that were provided for our sixth-grade football players for a job well done. The children were happy to receive the gift certificates. A special thank you needs to go out for Ramon’s Restaurant, Chavolo’s, Cafe Colorado and JJ’s Riverwalk Restaurant for the gift certificates for our sixth-grade coaches and their wives. Not to forget about The Springs Resort for the complimentary hot tub passes for the coaches and their wives. We couldn’t have done it without your support!

On behalf of all the great people at Colorado Mountain Ranch (Trojan Ranch) Summer Camp, I’d like to extend my heartfelt thanks for the generous donations that I collected from all of you. All donations were forwarded on to them, and gratefully received. They were truly touched by the generosity of the Pagosa Springs community.

While the massive cleanup is mostly complete, they have a long road ahead of them in order to reopen as intended next summer. The ongoing progress can be followed on their Facebook page: Colorado Mountain Ranch Group.

Tax deductible donations are still welcomed (made out to “Mountain Summers”) or other contributions to the “Rebuild the Ranch” Fund. The address is: Colorado Mountain Ranch, 10063 Gold Hill Road, Boulder, CO 80302.

I would be glad to forward on any other contributions as well.

Thank you all for helping this special place continue their ability to enrich the lives of future generations.

The Pagosa Springs Rotary Club would like to thank the Bank of Colorado, Citizens Bank and First Southwest Bank for their financial support with our organization’s annual Third Grade Dictionary Give-Away.

This past week, many Rotarians presented a dictionary to every third grade student, taught them how to use their new book and saw the joy and excitement on over 100 little faces. Talk about fun!

As one of Rotary’s many community contributions and holding true to our motto of “Service Above Self,” this event is among the most rewarding projects for us. We once again witnessed how this beautifully illustrated book encourages educational growth through reading.

Pagosa Springs Rotary Club is honored to be able to provide this assistance to our school system along with the partnership of these three community minded businesses.
