Aspen-area Honor Roll

Aspen Elementary third-grader and Miss Colorado Sweetheart Zoe Helena Owen donated $2,000 worth of wish list items to Colorado Children's Hospital on Oct. 2. Zoe raised the funds along with her group of volunteers by selling lemonade every Saturday, doubling her last year's figures which she donated as $1,000 check to Aspen Animal Shelter. Items included an X Box 360, 200 bottles of nail polish, 100 boxes of crayons and over 200 coloring and activity books. "I wish for them to just have one day where they can be normal kids," said Zoe, who was motivated to fundraise for CCH after a minor surgery there in January and seeing how many kids and families spend extended stays there.
