Aspen High sports get boost from fans

Dear Editor:

The Aspen High School Booster Club would like to thank everyone who helped make homecoming week so special at Aspen High School. The enthusiasm and spirit of entire community was greatly appreciated.

It was wonderful to see the community celebrate all of our fall student-athletes at the bonfire. Thanks to the dance team for the entertainment. Thank you to Paradise Bakery for their your cookie and hot-chocolate donation. Thank you to Aspen Caterers for additional hot-chocolate preparation. Thank you to the city of Aspen, Randy Ready, Charlie Martin and Ryan Drew for setting the bonfire. Thank you to the Aspen Volunteer Fire Department for monitoring the fire.

The homecoming football game was truly a community event. Thanks to Mark Lampe and the Maroon Creek Club for providing the golf carts for the homecoming court. Thank you to KSNO for your willingness to support school and community events on air. Thank you to The Aspen Times for covering local high school activities and sports – we love to read about our youth in the paper!

A special thank-you to KSPN for broadcasting all the Skiers football games. We appreciate all their sponsors, especially Peach’s, which donates $50 per touchdown to the Aspen High School Booster Club. Tune in Friday nights, and follow your Skiers!

Friday is the last home football game against Grand Valley, which has the same 6-1 record as the Skiers. We need a huge crowd to spur on the Skiers as they edge closer to postseason play with every win! Friday night is Elks recognition night in appreciation of everything Elks Lodge No. 224 does for the youth in our valley; all Elks will be admitted free. Donor Dudes will be at the game to sign people up for organ donation.

Wear your pink on Oct. 26 for the annual Game for the Cure, which is the last regular-season football game in Basalt.

A final thank-you to the 2012 Aspen High School Booster Club sponsors: Paradise Bakery; Oates Knevezevich, Gardenswartz, Kelly and Morrow; Law Offices of Jeanne C. Doremus and the Cherry family.

Check the Aspen School District calendar at to see what athletics, art shows, plays and club events are going on at the elementary, middle and high schools. We have a talented group of students in our school system, and the community is always invited to come support the endeavors of our students.

The Aspen High School Booster Club is a volunteer organization that supports 100 percent of the student body at Aspen High School through grants to Aspen High School athletics, arts, clubs, the ExEd program and special events.

Thank you again to the entire community for making 2012 homecoming week a memorable event. Please join us Friday night under the lights!

Mary Ryerson, Susan Marolt, Daylene Lichtenwalter, Barbara Cottrell, Cindy Zasacky, Andi Ferguson, Jeanne C. Doremus, Kelli Tschappat and Susan Dillingham
