Letter to the editor: Veterans concert committee thanks donors

The Monte Vista Community Fund, “LIVE” Veteran’s Benefit Concert Committee, would like to thank the following people and organizations who helped make this event a huge success. Colette Skeff and Debbie Garcia came up with the idea to not only pay tribute to honor all our veterans, past and present, but to help raise funds for the Faith Hinkley Veteran’s Memorial Park. 

The Monte Vista School District for the use of the Central Auditorium; Sponsors: Monte Vista Kiwanis Club, the San Luis Valley Federal Bank and the Rio Grande Savings and Loan Association;    Master of Ceremonies: Damian Arellano; Prize Donors: Mountain View Restaurant, Torres Floral Design, Monte Vista Coop, The Finery, Quincy’s, Dos Rios and Nino’s; Refreshments: Don Tomas Bakery and the Monte Vista Kiwanis Club.  A special thanks to the Monte Vista High School Band and the SLV Big Band along with the singers from Adams State University, for their wonderful and entertaining performances.

This was a first time event and we thank all those who attended to support the veterans and raise funds for the park.
