Andy Clark Awarded "2020 Eagle Community Impact Award"
Each year since 2014 the Town of Eagle has awarded the Town’s Community Impact Award. The award recognizes an Eagle individual, business or organization that is making a tangible impact on the community. The recipient is someone who is working to make Eagle a better place to live, work and play and represents the town’s creativity, resourcefulness and potential.
This year the Town of Eagle chose to award Andy Clark with the Eagle Community Impact Award. Andy is well known in the community for volunteering his time, equipment, and organizational skill to install and maintain the outdoor ice rink at Eagle Town Park each winter with a crew of volunteers.
Eagle volunteers continue to built community Ice Rink, an 80-year tradition...
EAGLE — Building Eagle's ice rink is like an Amish barn raising, only flat, says Andy Clark.
Eagle's outdoor town park ice rink is one of the oldest traditions. It started when Eagle built its town park in the 1930's and continued this year the friday after tanksgiving when a group of volunteers gathered to start the work.
EAGLE — The great stuff doesn't change much, and that's why Andy Clark and a bunch of dads spend winter nights in Eagle Town Park with fire hoses in their hands, making sure one of Eagle County's oldest traditions continues.
Clark and all those other dads now stand where dads have stood for 80 years, smiling through a winter evening spraying water through a fire hose and building an outdoor ice rink.
"It's like 'Field of Dreams' on ice," Clark said. "Every kid who skates on this rink should know that someone is doing this for them."
The Covid-19 virus is having a very significant impact on the residents of Eagle County. The impact is especially hard on financially vulnerable families. The Board of Directors has seen the increasing need for food among vulnerable people, and has developed the EVCF Covid-19 Response Plan to address this need and to raise the significant capital needed. The Community Market will be able to feed local families during this crisis.
We are incredibly grateful for the many ways in which our community has stepped up to support our most vulnerable neighbors during this difficult time. This includes a great deal of gratitude for Alliance Moving Systems, who have been volunteering to handle much of our Food Rescue Program so that The Community Market staff can focus on safe food distribution. Alliance Moving has been an incredible partner to us and we are thankful for their commitment to supporting their community.
EAGLE — To paraphrase the esteemed figure of fiction Albus Dumbledore, help will always be given in Eagle County to those who ask for it. (Read the thank you letter from First Lutheran Church)
Last week, First Lutheran Church of Gypsum asked and Andy Clark, of Alliance Moving Systems, responded. Now all that's needed is a few hundred locals and visitors who need some high-end furniture for their homes to come out and shop on Saturday, Feb. 10.
This story begins 130 years ago, when a group of valley pioneers established the Lutheran congregation in Gypsum. In 1890, they constructed the little white church that still stands at the corner of Eagle and Second streets. Over the past 13 decades, the congregation has persevered, although for years at a time the church couldn't employ a pastor and weekly services could not be held.
If I had to choose three words to describe my experience with Alliance moving systems they would be professional, accommodating and friendly. From start to finish Andy and his crew were simply outstanding in every aspect of our move from the time Andy came out to our home survey our belongings to the day we settled into our new home in Tucson. Andy, Cristal and his crew kept apprised of all aspects of the move every step of the way. We found Cristal and Jennifer, the Alliance in-house staff, helpful and informative and his “foreman/drivers” on the move were simply outstanding. When the Tucson ‘helpers’ at the end of the move didn’t show up to help unpack, Rudy and his partner said, “No problem, we’ll stay as long as you need us” and they did. When we forgot something, Rudy had given us his cell # and he returned later that day to remedy the situation. I would not hesitate for a nano-second to hire Alliance again (although I hope we don’t have to move again for a few more years ) but Andy and his guys exceeded our expectations in every way.
In a recent move out of state, I had the opportunity to use Alliance Moving Systems LLC out of Eagle, Colorado. My experience with using this company was remarkable! They were extremely professional and efficient, not to mention kind and courteous. I would HIGHLY recommend this company for your moving needs. FIVE STARS for Alliance Moving Systems!!!!

Our move went well from start to finish. Andy helped us a lot on the front end which made our decisions easier for what to move or what to donate. He described “Home to Home“ which is a great program and easy on the client. His moving cost estimate was accurate. Both Cristal and Jenifer In the office were extremely helpful and patient with my many questions. You both made us feel comfortable with the moving procedures, insurance and fees. The packing crews were very efficient. Mario, Catherine and Juan were great on our 2 days of packing. The moving crews (including Mario, Catherine, Rudy, German, Juan & Jackson) were fast yet careful. They took care of our possessions. They were efficient and professional. My request to pick up empty boxes was acted on quickly and that was so helpful. I do not have a complaint as I felt your fees were reasonable, I would highly recommend the entire Alliance Moving crew for anyone considering a household move.

Thank you so much for making our move to Gypsum go so smoothly! Your teams were incredible! Mario kept his cool even when things got tricky, everyone was willing to help and was always smiling. What impressed me most is that every one of your guys reached out to shake our hands when they left. We will definitely recommend Alliance Moving to all of our friends! Thanks again,
Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the whole process of our move out with you guys. Your coming out was informative and gave us lots of tips, our mid-process resulted in getting more storage too, which we CLEARLY needed. And the crew that handles moving out and then into storage were all you could hope for. They packed our furniture extremely well and handles getting the heavy tools up from the shop like the pros they are. The office was helpful and kept us well posted as we worked through the process and helped with some of the supplies we needed. Hard to imagine being happier with the process so far. If loading us to go to San Antonio goes half as good as getting into storage we’ll be very happy campers! Mario felt we should be able to get all our stuff into a 26′ truck but if possible I’d appreciate it if you could have a look at it as well to get your opinion if one 26′ truck will do it. We’re going to San Antonio the rest of this month but when we get back I’ll be in touch to talk about getting you to look at what’s there. Thanks for all the fine work by your whole gang!
My wife, Susan, and I would like to thank you and your entire team for the outstanding service we received during our two moves this month. Over the past 41 years I worked in the hotel business where everything we did was about the customer experience and making sure they always felt cared for, valued and respected. Your entire team at Alliance, from the front office handling logistics to the team carrying out the physical move, they always went above and beyond to get our move completed with the utmost care and respect to our needs. It is clear to me that you have a true caring culture at Alliance that lives each and every day throughout your organization. Susan and I truly enjoyed everyone we interacted with and we are so grateful for your attentive service and caring attitude. Our move was handled perfectly. We wish you and the Alliance team all the best in your continued success as a well run company. Warmest regards,
Dave Horton & Susan Kohli
“Just had a wonderful experience with Alliance moving. From the beginning, the company was very easy to work with. The estimator was very friendly, supportive and had good suggestions. The office staff were wonderful to work with. Cristal was very responsive and quick to return emails. She kept us posted every step of the way. The moving crew led by Rudy was amazing. All of the guys were extremely friendly, professional and took great care of our possessions. You felt like they were moving their own stuff or helping out family members. This is our 4th move in the last 5 years and by far the best. Really recommend this team for local moves.”
Thanks… Patrick and Simon
We recently moved from Eagle-Vail to Salida, Colorado, and contracted with Alliance Moving out of Gypsum, Colorado. The quality and efficiency of their work was top notch. Roberto was the lead and he called several times to update me on arrival. They put down blankets on the carpet so as not to track snow and dirt into the house. All the workers were polite and went above and beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend this company.
Ann and I just wanted to let you know what a great job your company has done for us in our move from Vail to Arrowhead. Your crews were very prompt, professional and always cleaning up after themselves. Our move in with the crew of Mario, Rudy, Rudy Jackson and German could have been a disaster with all of the snow that day but went off without a hitch and no cleaning up to do. Again, thank all of your crew including Cristal for a great job.
