A Boost at a Sad Time
In 1978, my Dad was diagnosed with lung cancer so I went to Glenwood Springs during Christmas break to be with him and my mom. On New Years Eve, my husband Lyle took our two children to the pool late and they were enjoying the water and steamy air when my husband heard his name over the loudspeaker. He thought, "Oh no, it must be Joan calling about her dad." He had a big surprise after dripping into the office and heard he had won a family pass! They had lost track of time and didn't connect the announcement with the drawing at midnight. We all enjoyed the pool that year and chuckled over the midnight surprise for a long time afterward.
