A prom thank-you

Dear Editor:The juniors of Aspen High School would like to thank the community for their help to put on an outstanding prom on April 30. People from all over our valley worked very hard to make it the best it could be. The St. Regis hotel held the event and provided an outstanding staff to help. The prom committee worked after school on Friday and on Saturday morning to put together complicated decorations. It was the first time the junior class decided to buy decorations that required hours of labor. However, they looked amazing and made the theme of “Enchanted Forest” come to life.Going along with the theme, the junior class decided to make a generous contribution to the Aspen Wilderness Foundation. This is the first time a junior class has ever made a donation to a charity fund in connection with prom.Our prom was a huge success, but it couldn’t have been done without the community’s support, so thank you to all of those who helped and supported prom 2005.Elyse BoelensAspen High SchoolJunior class president
