Stuff we got right

Annah “The Human Artform” Scully dropped us a note to say “THANK YOU SO MUCH” to everyone who helped make the Music Man Jr. such a huge, audience thrilling hit. The crowds were massive, the show was great and you can expect the place to be overrun with Hollywood agents any minute.

A Moment to Remember

The Vail Golf Club has blocked off the 8:45 tee time on Sept. 11 in tribute to the tragedies that took place one year ago. The Vail Recreation District would like to invite golfers and the general public alike, to join them on the first tee for five minutes of silence, in remembrance of those lost. So please come by as we unite not only as a valley, but also as an extraordinary nation.
