Letter to the Editor: Many helped with Harvest Bowls Festival

Dear Editor: This time last year, while digging potatoes with my kids at Rangely Community Gardens, my children and I were amazed as we watched sustenance emerge from the ground.

Harvest Bowls Fest popular, raises $7K for organizations

Volunteers served up fresh-baked bread along with three homemade soups made from locally harvested vegetables and meat at Thursday’s Harvest Bowls Festival in Rangely. The event raised more than $7,500 for four local organizations and global relief organization Help One Now.

RANGELY I Rangely’s first Harvest Bowls Festival drew approximately 200 people to Rangely Community Gardens on Thursday, netting more than $7,000 for four local non-profit groups and one global relief organization.

Harvest bowls…

Freshly thrown bowls await firing.

Over the last four months, potter Elizabeth Robinson Wiley and studio mate Julia Davis have crafted more than 200 bowls for this month’s Harvest Bowls Festival.
