ASPEN – The Aspen Hall of Fame has announced Pat Fallin, Joe Edwards and Michael Kinsley as its 2013 inductees.
Inductees must have “had a significant and lasting impact on the Aspen-Snowmass communities economically, physically, spiritually or intellectually, have demonstrated inspirational leadership, and have made major contributions in the cultural, sporting and/or civic arenas,” according to a statement issued Friday.
For more than 40 years, Fallin “was instrumental in Sister Cities, League of Women Voters, the city’s election commission, (the Planning and Zoning Commission), City Council, Wheeler Associates, Snowmass/Aspen Council for the Arts and Basalt Library Board,” the statement said.
Both Edwards and Kinsley served as county commissioners “and helped develop systems for growth management, for transportation, and the trails and bicycle system as well as the affordable housing program. Joe was an advocate for establishing the Aspen mall and Michael currently channels his creative talents into landscape painting,” the statement said.
The three will be honored at the annual Aspen Hall of Fame banquet Jan. 19 at the Hotel Jerome. More details are available at http://www.aspenhalloffame.org.
