DEAR EDITOR:

Telluride Education Foundation would like to thank the Telluride community for joining us on Homecoming weekend for our annual Fall Festival, and for supporting our raffle. This event helps fund our student experiential opportunities in and out of the classrooms, teacher magnet grants (master's programs, child care, home buying, commuting expenses), and social-emotional education in the community.

We also thank all of our volunteers, including our student volunteers from the Telluride High School cross country team. This organization also shared in the proceeds raised from our event.
