A Speedy thanks for Thrift Shop
Dear Editor: The Aspen Speedos Swim Team would like to express our appreciation to The Thrift Shop of Aspen for their support of the children on the team. The Thrift Shop has been a sponsor of our team in the past; and now in 2006, they have again lent their support to those children on the team. For this, we are tremendously grateful and will proudly display their name on the team’s sponsor banner that hangs in the ARC aquatic center.The Thrift Shop contributes significant amounts to many deserving organizations; and we are proud to have been selected by them for their support. The Thrift Shop is able to provide support to organizations (such as ours) by accepting donated articles and then reselling them. The staff is volunteer, and virtually all of the sale proceeds are donated. We encourage everyone to not only donate articles to The Thrift Shop, but to also shop there. Not only do they have a great number of items to sell, but the proceeds go to many local groups and clubs.It is also because of help from organizations such as The Thrift Shop that we will again be hosting a swim meet this summer. We anticipate that this meet will be just as successful as our first-ever swim meet held this past year; with nearly 250 young swimmers from Western Slope teams attending. In April, the team will be hosting its 2006 Season Informational Meeting. It is a chance to learn about the team and to see why The Thrift Shop is a sponsor of our team. Visit the team website (aspenspeedos.org) in early April for more information. Thank you again, Thrift Shop of Aspen! … from the swimmers, coaches and parents of the Aspen Speedos.Greg Karaus, president, Aspen Speedos Swim TeamAspen

Development in Basalt barely skipped a beat in 2020 despite the coronavirus. It’s expected to be busier next year.
