NEWS FROM THE COALL ANNUAL HOLIDAY PARTY
by Karen Selden
University of Colorado Law Library

On Thursday December 6, 2001, nearly 40 CoALL members enjoyed CoALL’s annual Holiday Party, held at Holland & Hart LLP in Denver.

On Sunday evening December 9th, 2001 seventeen CoALL members and guests volunteered to answer telephones during a live segment of the Channel 6 Rocky Mountain PBS membership drive. Rick Steves, the host of the famous and popular travel series, was in the Channel 6 studio to talk about and introduce some segments about traveling in Europe. During the time slot, the volunteers took 141 pledges totaling $18,625. In addition, they received one legal reference question! 

All volunteers wore either purple (the CoALL color) or the terrific new CoALL T-shirts and hats created and ordered during the fall of 2001. The T-shirts are a beautiful purple with the award winning mountain logo from the top left-hand corner of the CoALL website on the front. You can see picture of the T-shirts on the CoALL website

The volunteers all received dinner and thank you gifts for their time, including autographed copies of Rick Steves’ travel newsletter. All the volunteers had a fantastic time, and CoALL received some wonderful exposure. CoALL hopes to make this volunteer opportunity a regular event.
