A world-class party

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Project Graduation Committee for the Aspen High School class of 2010, I would like to thank the Aspen Club and Spa, senior parents, junior parents, local businesses and our community for the opportunity to host a fantastic party on May 29, attended by 97 percent of the graduates. Because of the support from many businesses and the countless hours of volunteerism from parents, teachers and administrators, the event was a huge success.

The tradition of the Project Graduation Party in our community has been in existence for more than 20 years. The event has been supported by the Aspen Club and Spa since its existence. Many thanks go to Nikki Sebenaler and Michael Fox at the Aspen Club for their years of support of the event.

A tribute goes to the Kahn family, who hosted an elegant, fun and delicious breakfast at the top of Aspen Mountain. Special thanks also goes to the Aspen Skiing Co. for allowing use of their facilities.

The Aspen School District and Aspen High School hosted an unbelievable senior week leading up to graduation on May 29. It was very special for the graduating seniors. Many thanks go to Charlie Anastas, Jeff Kraunz, Diana Sirko and the entire staff at Aspen High School. We wish much success to Charlie and Diana as they leave the district in their future endeavors.

Project Graduation is an example of how this community comes together to provide a safe environment by hosting a world-class party for our graduating seniors. It has been a true pleasure to be a part of the community tradition that will continue for the future graduating classes of Aspen High School.
