Krispy Kreme Kings
The wonderful folks at Gypsum Creek Middle School want you to have Krispy Kreme doughnuts, one of the four major food groups and the pillar of a great society. They’re $7 a dozen, and you need a train car load. Call 328-8980.
The gallant members of the Battle Mountain High School ski team, who have your best interests at heart, also are selling Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Call one of the BMHS alpinists or Nordicists at 328-2930.
About 7:30 p.m. last Friday, Kathy was at the City Market in Avon renting videos. Her son rented a Play Station 2 game, “Pro Race Driver.” After they finished at the rental counter, Kathy was paying for their groceries and her son accidentally left the game in the cart. When they reached home, in Edwards, he noticed he didn’t have it. Someone stole it. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE! Do the right thing and drop it in the video box at the Avon City Market. Otherwise, Kathy’s stuck paying for something she doesn’t have. Put yourself in her shoes. Call Kathy Navarro, 926-8236, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scott Bunker of the U.S. volleyball team will be setting and spiking at 5:30 p.m. Friday, at Eagle Valley Middle School, as part of a men’s volleyball exhibition. Local volleyball guru Rob Crawford is putting the event together, and it’ll have the best players in Colorado. Men’s volleyball looks a little like human howitzers firing leather spheres at each other. After the exhibition, you can get on the court with these guys, get top level instruction and win prizes by hitting them in the chest with a volleyball – which is way cooler than a silent auction. The whole thing is FREE, so it’s an awareness-raiser, not a fund-raiser. Local boys volleyball will be offered at the end of February. Check out http://www.lightningvc.com.
Hammerin’ with Habitat
Habitat for Humanity’s Massive Garage Sale is 8 a.m., Feb. 1. There’s no way to give you directions, so just drive to Eagle on the appointed day and follow the signs. They have lots of plumbing fixtures and fittings, electrical fittings and fixtures, bedding, appliances, and a bunch of household items. They had a garage sale in October, which set new outdoor records for putting people together with cool stuff. Call 748-6718 for more information.
They’re also collecting used hammers to build houses, which is what Habitat for Humanity does. To donate your used hammers, bring them to the garage sale, along with your check book.
The Mile High Down Syndrome Association wants you to ride in style, which is why they’re raffling off a Harley Davidson motorcycle. Tickets are $5 each, and there’s a bunch of other stuff you can win, but you really want the Harley, which is why you’ll buy so many tickets it’ll make paper manufacturers rethink their opposition to making paper with hemp instead of trees. You remember the Great Sarah Forest? It’s not a forest anymore, and you don’t want that to happen. Anyway, call our buddy Rick Sackbauer, 376-0178, or send your enormous pile of American dollars and a self-addressed stamped envelope to; MHDSA, 1899 Gaylord St., Denver, CO 80206. The deadline is Feb. 5.
