Dervla Lacy: Fundraiser thanks

I would like to take this opportunity to thank every person who participated in the annual daffodil fundraiser for the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association's Hospice and Palliative Care program. Fifty volunteers logged a total of 132 hours for this event. We had more than 150 local businesses participate in our pre-sales and had seven local retailer partners provide space for us on our sale day, the first day of spring.

We are so happy that, year after year, we are able to bring back this fundraiser across the valley. This year, we painted our towns yellow with 5,000 daffodils. If you missed out on your chance to get a bunch, don't worry, we'll be increasing our order next year. We made some small changes to the fundraiser this year, like going "green" with our wrapping style and using our Rollingstone Respite House as a home base for all activities.

Do you want to get on our pre-sale list or do you have comments/suggestions? Send an email to

As the only hospice provider in Routt and Moffat counties, the money raised at this event is critical to helping our organization offer end-of-life care as well as grief support groups for children and adults, bereavement care, and community outreach in both counties.Thank you for supporting us and the families we care for.

Director of development, Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association
