ACES turned 40

Dear Editor:We enjoyed a wonderful community gathering at Hallam Lake on Monday evening, June 23, celebrating ACES 40th anniversary. Rather than the usual potluck, which normally draws 50 members or 60 members, ACES provided dinner this year.Nearly 400 people RSVPd, and even more showed up! The event certainly surpassed our expectations, and everyone reveled in the perfect summer evening, the air was full of Aspens generous community spirit. Our only disappointment is that a few were caught off guard by our uncharacteristic shift to requesting an RSVP, and we had to turn away a few who wished to attend. To our members and friends who we werent able to serve, our deepest apologies. We truly appreciate all of our members and supporters, and feel bad about the miscommunication. We welcome anyone who wasnt able to attend to join us for an ACES naturalist program any time this summer. Once again, we offer our deepest thanks to our 40th-anniversary sponsors: Holland & Hart, Holy Cross Energy, Obermeyer Asset Management Company, Alpine Bank Aspen and Mason Morse Real Estate Company. Also, many thanks to our in-kind donors: Aspen Brewery, Aspen Sojourner Magazine, City Market, Clarks Market, Greenspot, Mountain Flowers, Paradise Bakery and Susan Fesus, whose contributions helped make the evening one of the highlights of the summer. Last, but not least, thanks to our family of members, both new and old, who help make ACES the unique place that it is.Tom and Jody Cardamone The ACES Board of TrusteesACES StaffAspen
