Dear Editor:

What a beautiful day for the Veterans Day Ceremony: To come down Main Street and see the stars and stripes flying in the early morning sun; thanks, Parks.

No traffic noise on Main Street during the ceremony – that’s huge. Thanks to streets and the community safety officers for that.

How fitting to have Karen Woodard lay the wreath and to participate in the candle lighting; 10th Mountain Division lives on; thanks.

What meaningful words for both the invocation and benediction from Father Hilton; many thanks.

A thought-provoking and emotional reading from Tom Buesch, thank you.

The roll call of our fallen; it hits close to home. Thanks, Darryl Grob, for that reading.

The trumpet interlude and taps; absolutely beautiful. Thanks, Richard Sundeen.

Our Norwegian Nightingale: lovely as always. Thanks, Jeanne Walla.

To those who came forward and shared their stories with us, thanks for the memories.

To the Elks Lodge No. 224; thank you for the tasty luncheon.

And many thanks to Aspen High School for the wonderful program in the Skier Dome. AHS rocks!
