If you have the power to make someone happy, do it. The world needs more of that. That is how I feel about my work with The New Ute Theater Society; it makes me happy seeing smiles on others. My name is Tanya Giard and I joined N.U.T.S. in 2011 when my husband became the General Contractor for the remodel work on the façade of the exterior of the Theater. During each meeting I learned a bit more history of The Ute and it became an inspiring project. To watch a building physically come back to life was truly astonishing. I am currently the Treasure for The New Ute Theater Society, I am a bookkeeper by day for our family owned and operated Construction Company. I enjoy donating my time and efforts to this remarkable Community Events Center that the City of Rifle has developed.
