A boy in need of a good deed
October 4, 2006
An 11-year-old Boy Scout is looking for a good deed.But not a good deed to do. He needs to have one done for him.
Gavan Brouillette says he lost an envelope filled with $300 Wednesday, somewhere on Main Street between The Aspen Times building and the Sardy House.After an hour and a half of fruitless searching, he and his dad, David Souders, gave up hope that they would find the money.Brouillette had been selling holiday wreaths in town as way to raise money for Troop 221 in New Castle. He had been collecting money and taking contact information. Each donor was left with a promise from the first-year Scout that he would be in touch as soon as the wreaths arrived later this fall.
“I’ve been doing Cub Scouts for a long time,” Brouillette said. “I just started as a Boy Scout.”Even though his troop is in New Castle, he was selling wreaths in Aspen because his dad works here and there isn’t a troop in town.
The envelope, which had all the money tucked inside and the contact info written on the outside, went missing around 2 p.m. It disappeared on Main Street between the Times, at 310 E. Main, and the building at 200 E. Main that houses Stan Clauson Associates Inc. and John Olson Builder Inc. Brouillette also stopped in Aspen Home Consignment, next door to 200 E. Main St. Anyone with information about the money and the envelope should call David Souders at (970) 618-0252.Allyn Harvey’s e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
