Last weekend the Telluride Elks Lodge hosted four Wounded Warriors and their families. For most of them it was their first or second Wounded Warrior Program trip.
We received a grant from the Elks National Veterans Service Commission and Elks National Foundation, but it would literally not have been possible without the additional support of a number of our local businesses.
We would like to thank Brown Dog Pizza, Smuggler's Brewpub, Maggie's Bakery, Cindy Bread and St. Patrick's Church for feeding the troops; Telluride Flyfishers, Telluride Outside, Wilkinson Public Library, Telluride ATV Tours, Nugget Theatre, and Peaks Resort and Spa for assisting with activities; Eric Kent and Marty Wilcox for being great fishing guides; Timberline Ace Hardware and Telluride Truffle for visiting "essentials;" the Ice House for their warm hospitality; and Ben Donofrio and Harley Brooke-Hitching for hosting great dinners.
Thank you to our wonderful community for being so eager to make a positive difference in the lives of our returning service men and women!
