Vail Daily letter: Thank you for cleaning up our community
May 9, 2017
Our community is amazing! Every year at the conclusion of the Community Pride Highway Cleanup, I can't help but feel proud to call this valley home. Again this year, people from every town within the county showed up to help clear 11 tons of trash from along 140 miles of Interstate 70 and Highways 6, 24 and 131. They donated their Saturday morning to make our valley beautiful again and prevent the trash from making it into our rivers and streams.
To all of you who came out and helped: thank you.
To all of the event sponsors, thank you, as well. You helped to make the thank-you barbecue after the cleanup possible. Our sponsors included Vail Resorts Epic Promise, Eagle County, Edwards Metro District, town of Vail, town of Gypsum, United Companies, Walmart, Antlers at Vail, First Bank, Loff Roofing Services, Slifer Smith and Frampton, town of Eagle, TV8, Vail Board of Realtors, Vail Rotary, Alpine Bank, Alpine Engineering Inc., Buckhorn Valley Metro District, Collett Enterprises Inc., Eagle Ranch Association, community of Eagle-Vail, Interstate Restoration, KZYR, Land Planning Collaborative, Leonard Rice Engineers, Lotic Hydrological, Napa Auto Parts, Performance Automotive Center, RA Nelson, SGM, Stout House Coffee & Kitchen, West Vail Liquor Mart, The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa, Zastrow Dentistry, Always Mountain Time, Arrowhead Alpine Club, Arrowhead Village, CDOT, Crazy Mountain Brewing Company, Loaded Joe's in Avon, Moe's Original BBQ, Vail Honeywagon and the Vail Daily.
Thank you again. We hope to see you all again at the Eagle River Cleanup on Sept. 9.
Executive Director, Eagle River Watershed Council
