A grand ol’ Fourth

Dear Editor: My family and I would like to send a big thank-you to the Roaring Fork Club for their fantastic Fourth of July fireworks display. We always look forward every July 4 to watching them from home here in Basalt, and this year they were better than ever.We also got an even bigger thrill and surprise earlier in the evening when we spotted several sky divers parashooting down from a plane above Basalt. While we watched them floating in the navy blue evening sky with the half-moon in the background, one parashooter unfurled a huge American flag as they drifted down to the golf course.What a way to celebrate America’s birthday! Thanks again Roaring Fork Club, for an Independence Day display that so many of us Basaltines really enjoy. Kim, Mike, Megan and Jonathan PetrieBasalt
