To the editor:

We'd like to give a big "thank you" to Oregano's Restaurant and all of Riordan Mansion's supporters who dined there on Sept. 17. Oregano's donated 20 percent of the total bill for all diners who presented a flyer for the benefit. The grand total of $420.12 donated to the Riordan Action Network exceeded expectations!

Pre-schoolers ride tricycles for charity

To the editor:

Peace Lutheran Preschool would like to thank all the preschool families for their help with the St. Jude Children's Hospital Trike-A-Thon that was held on Sept. 23. With the children's help the preschool was able to raise over $1,200.00 for St. Jude Children's Hospital. A lot of fun was had and we are proud to help the St. Jude Children's Hospital.

Film premiere a success

To the editor:

I was in awe and extremely appreciative for the huge community turn out for the recent premiere of my

documentary "Changing Gears: Flagstaff and The Mountain Bike." While just shy of 400 made it inside

The Orpheum to watch, over 100 were turned away.

We raised much needed cash and several cases of food for the Flagstaff Family Food Center .

To those who saw it, thank you for the laughter, cheers, and positive reviews. Thanks to all who stood

on line, to those local heros in and behind the scenes, to the dozen local businesses and the scores of friends and family who sponsored it, to the media for plugging it, to the Orpheum for showing it, and to the Flag community for supporting a local filmmaker committed to making local films. It takes a village.

And to the many who are asking, the next chance to see "Changing Gears" on the big screen will be on Saturday, Oct. 15, at the Flagstaff Mountain Film Festival.

Referee appreciative of good sports

To the editor:

My name is Heather Mauch. I am a volleyball referee who had the privilege of refereeing a match between Flagstaff and Coconino High Schools. The gym was packed, the teams were ready and the national anthem was sung. It was sung by a combined chorus from both schools. What a wonderful experience. Then the match started. The fans from both schools were cheering, screaming and being good sports. The administration from both schools were there, standing in front of these wonderful fans, to make sure that only good sporting behavior was exhibited. This was the most enjoyable experience I have had, with rivals schools. Thank you fans for being so spirited, and thank you chorus for combining for a wonderful national anthem, and thank you administrators for being there.
