For the past eight years, Copper Mountain College hosts a holiday Festival of Wreaths Auction, the proceeds benefit our students in a plethora of ways: free bus rides, soup for our financially challenged students and other ways that are too numerous to count.

First off, I wish to thank all our community businesses who each year donate wreaths along with some pretty splendid gifts attached. Each wreath is decorated with love and care.

Secondly, and not least, a huge thank you goes out to Copper Mountain foundation’s Executive Director Sandy Smith and her wonderful sidekick, Sara Hutson; the preparations for this event are obviously a gift of love. 

I’ve been a participant each year, and along with a generous donation from Theatre 29 of two season passes to the 2020 season, I am honored to make a wreath — it helps me get into the holiday spirit and allows me a chance to give back.

I’m writing this just before the auction starts on Sunday, but I just wanted to express my personal gratitude to all who offer this labor of love.

I am a proud alumni of Copper Mountain College, and see what these gifts do for our students firsthand. Thank you all again for your continued support.

Thank you all!
