Letter to the Editor: Thanks for those who supported ESA annual Holiday Bazaar

Dear Editor:

The Epsilon Sigma Alpha Annual Holiday Bazaar was held Nov. 15 at Parkview Elementary School in Rangely. The weather was great and we had a great turnout with 28 paid vendors.

This year’s St. Jude raffle consisted of a 4.16-carat marquis cut natural We Lo Opal pendant set in all white gold, including the chain. This pendant was worth $1,200 and was donated by Paul Burgell. This pendant was won by Barb Chism.
A 55-inch Sanyo flat screen TV with all the extras, donated by the Striegels, was won by Ken Stiles. An 11×14-inch framed sunset photo donated by René Harden was won by Corey Hale. The $100 money shirt donated by ESA was won by Barb Widner.
We also had two large dream catchers donated by Tyler Robb that were won by Norma Richards and Ken Stiles. Tina Tolley donated a Toole Christmas wreath, which was won by Kim.
All together, we collected around $1,100 for St. Jude’s Children’s Cancer Research Hospital.
Thank you all so much for helping make our Holiday Bazaar a success. This event would not be possible without the help and support of our donors.
White River Market donated all the food for our concessions, Subway donated all the chips and cheese, Giovanni’s donated a case of crackers to have with our chili, Parkview Elementary so graciously lets us use their facilities every year to put on this event and the Bank of the San Juans lets us put our information on its marquee. We also want to let Barb Widner know how much we appreciate her help each year.
Next year’s ESA annual Holiday Bazaar will be held Nov. 13.
Brenda Hopson, President, and
Members, Epsilon Chi No. 1836 of ESA
