To the Rocky Mountain Goat,

Thank you for choosing my submission for first place this year in your “Winter Story” contest. It was such a pleasure to write and I appreciate the response of the judges’ comments. I enjoyed reading the stories of the other contributors and applaud their candid and hear-heart felt stories. I also found Arthur’s art work charming and distinctive. Thanks to all the various sponsors for helping to continue this contest. Lastly, a thanks to our local paper that has been doing such a great job all these years, and to the readers that support it.

P.S. Thanks RMG for encouraging us to write!
