Letter: Blessed with community help
More than seven years ago, I was in a car accident which resulted in my quadriplegia. From this tragedy, I have witnessed a miracle, our community. Our community has continued to be a source of prayers, love and support since my accident.
On April 23, I was the recipient of a benefit concert featuring Peter Kater at the Vilar Center that raised needed funds toward my out-of-pocket expenses for equipment, therapy and daily living needs.
Thank you to Barbara Hogoboom who had the idea and brought it to life and to the committee that helped her: Pat Casey, Nancy Kerby, Bobbi Hagerman, Debbie Mennino, Karen Simon, Barbara Roberts, Anne Roberts, Liz Spetnagel and Mary Pat Witt. Thank you to the Vail Valley Charitable Fund and the beautiful Vilar Center for the Arts. Thank you to the benefit sponsors, auction and in-kind donors, and to the many individual donors.
I start each day grateful knowing I have a community of loving supporters behind me ready to help! I am truly blessed. I hope that you always see yourselves as I do, as exceptional people.

Are we seeing more bears because there are more bears on the valley floor, or because we’re all spending more time at home? It could be a bit of both.
