Letters to the Editor
July 19, 2008
On Wednesday of this week I had the great honor of receiving the Myles Rademan Spirit of Hospitality award from the Park City Chamber Bureau. I wanted to thank my family, all of the people I work with, and my friends in the community, for showing up to share this award with me. This award was special because Park City is special and to be recognized in this way was one of the great moments in my life.
Also, I wanted to extend a special thanks to Myles Rademan, Rob Slettom and Bob Wheaton for speaking on my behalf. I can’t wait to return the favor.
Finally, thanks to Dr. Benjamin Russell from the Albion Dental Clinic for reattaching my front tooth that fell out the morning of the presentation. You can only imagine the fear of getting up in front of 200 people and accepting an award like this without your front tooth. I went to see Dr. Russell first thing that morning and he dropped everything he was doing to help me. I guess the spirit of hospitality lives on in everyone, dentists and property managers alike.

As we enter another "One Book" season, I am glad to see the feature in the July 8th SCENE. However, I hope that the article doesn’t leave the impression that adult Parkites aren’t reading. When I check the statistics and I have for years as a (former) Library Board member and (current) chair of the Library Foundation I see a pretty robust picture of increasing circulation at all levels. Beyond statistics, since I use the Library a lot, I have the evidence of my own eyes as I cross paths with so many of my neighbors.
Indeed, we’ve had both great successes and some disappointments with author lectures and other adult programs, but we’re not discouraged. Literally every day, something happens at the Library that reminds us of the fabulous community support that keeps our doors happily open!
