Aspen Misc. for Sunday, Sept. 18, 2022: Snow and wildlife friends

Photo of Alpine Bank executive Mary Ryerson and Terri Caine, Executive Director of Summit54. Summit54 was chosen to receive the Alpine Bank “Colorado Day — Pay it Forward" contest. Alpine Bank held the contest to celebrate Colorado Day on Aug. 1. Lilianna Seijo won the grand prize and selected Summit54 to receive the check for $1,876, as 1876 was the year that Colorado became a state. Seijo said, “I didn’t hesitate to choose Summit54 because I am an educator and I highly value the importance of Summit54’s educational programs for children in the Roaring Fork Valley."

From Karen Keeney: “My ‘friend,’ who comes to sit with me when I am reading on the back porch. A being more beautiful than man. Please don’t kill him on Hwy. 82.”
