Vail Daily letter: A thousand thanks
Vail, CO, Colorado
The 2012 Eagle Valley Elementary Night of 1,000 Stars event was a tremendous success. Storyteller Richie Castro entertained and educated students during daytime assemblies.
That evening, over 100 parents attended a session with the storyteller. At the same time, guest readers from the community read stories to children. This free literacy event could not have been possible without the support of our community.
The organizing committee would like to thank the following people for dedicating their time as Guest Readers: Jessica Martinez, Jane Merten, Dave Neely and Steve-Smokey Bear-Elzenga, Jared Walters, Joy and Dave Ortiz, Joyce Chizmadia and Bailey of Vail Pet Partners, Sergio Ornelas, Emily Barela, Debbie Vernell, Tammy Conway, Tiffany Meyers, Alecz Adams, Patty Gibbons, Joann Terry, Scott Hixon, Katie Jarnot, Jim Lammers, and Ms. Lindsey.

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.
