Town Talk

Rand The Man Unusual

Michele’s purse was stolen Saturday night from one of our fine Vail Village libation locations. But alas, it found its way back into her lovin’ arms the very next day. Some very nice guy brought it back, although the lowlife dirtbag who stole it took the cash. The guy did his good deed anonymously, which makes it even doubly cool. You’re a hero.

Special Olympics Volunteers Needed

The good folks who run the local Special Olympics are looking for volunteers to work with local Special Olympics athletes at Sunday training sessions, January through February in alpine skiing, snowshoe, snowboard and sit skiing. They can also train a guide in sit skiing. Orientation and training for volunteers will be Dec. 6-7 at Copper Mountain. They also need volunteers for the swim team. Orientation and training for this will be Nov 15-16 in Grand Junction. Registration deadline is Nov. 8. Call Donna at (970) 949 6647.

It’s Kittay Day

How on earth could this one slip past us?!? Art Kittay, who remains in his extremely late 30s, had another birthday last weekend. Not only that, but his beloved grandson, Jesse, celebrated his first birthday. Mom and dad are Barry and Doe Kittay.

Birthday Brigade

If you seen Ed Rothbeauer out and about in Avon or Edwards, wish him a very happy birthday. Thinking of you, Princess P.

Veterans needed

Veterans and Friends of Mount Holy Cross VFW Post 10721, with organizer extraordinaire Colonel Buddy Simms back on active duty, John Perkins (949-9322) and Debbie Robbins (926-4470) are organizing this year’s VFW activities at area schools.

They need as many veterans as possible, and it’s extremely important for the kids to see what real heroes look like.

Please RSVP to either John or Debbie. Tom Kirk, who spent five years in prison camp during the Vietnam War will be the guest speaker.

Fall Fun Night is Thursday

If you’re not all that interested in Thursday’s Halloween Trick or Treat deal, check out Fall Fun Night in Avon’s Nottingham Park. It starts at 4 p.m. and goes until the fun runs out. The event is completely volunteer driven and financially supported by the Christian churches in the Vail Valley, The Town of Avon and local businesses. If your business, family or church is interested in making a tax-deductible cash or goods contribution, or if you have general questions, call Nedra Bonta at Calvary Chapel Vail Valley at 748-1103.

Avon Dolphins Swim Team

The good folks at the Avon Rec. Center are taking registrations for the year-round Avon Dolphins swim team. The fall season has already begun, and practices will run Monday through Friday from 4-5 p.m. They have a bunch of scheduling and pass options to suit any level of interest. To register, or find out more about joining the Avon Dolphins swim team, call 748-4060.
