Happy new year …

More than 160 people attended the first annual Range Call New Year’s Eve dance sponsored by the Range Call Committee, the Meeker Lodging Tax Board and local businesses benefiting the Range Call Celebration. “We were very happy with the first annual New Year’s Eve party,” Range Call president Suzan Pelloni said of the party, which was open to all ages. “All ages had a really nice time. The party featured live music from Straight Shot, snacks, a photo booth, the Lions Club ran a cash bar and a Tipsy Taxi was provided by the James Sizemore Memorial Fund, benefiting the Rio Blanco County Search and Rescue. Pelloni said the Range Call committee is planning something for mid-spring of this year.
