Town Talk for Tuesday, Oct. 22, 2002

About half the Eagle populace showed up Saturday night for the Friends of the Pool Pasta Fund-raiser and Funfest, put together by Princess Stephanie and cast of several. They raised a bunch of money, which will be used to increase the size of the new Eagle pool. They also did a fun run Sunday morning, to help all those who committed the sin of gluttony pay for their sins of the flesh.They need to raise a bunch more money, so send Stephanie checks early and often.aDoug’s family needs your helpDoug Reedie lived in Minturn and died a couple weeks ago of Lou Gehrig’s disease.

(She is a very private woman, so she does not really like the idea, but they’re doing it anyway.) We’ve raised a couple of thousand in neighborhood donations, and she is selling Doug’s beautiful 65 Thunderbird.She wandered through Town Talk Towers last week, and she’s fantastic.They’re throwing a memorial/benefit at 455 Main st (the old Tavern/455/Mariachi’s) on Wednesday from 6-10 p.m. It will be a $15 donation, and that will get you: JB’s BBQ and Gourmet Cowboy food, refreshments and music by Dirk Diggler.
