Aspen Times to fte itself

The Aspen Times is throwing a monster birthday bash for the entire community. All are welcome to celebrate 125 years of The Aspen Times with food, live music, drinks and a jolly good time. The free party is on from 4-7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 25, on the grounds of Ruth Whyte Park at Sixth and Bleeker, right next to the home of the Aspen Historical Society.”We’ve been saving up to do it,” said Aspen Times Publisher Jenna Weatherred. “It’s something we wanted to do for the community. And the town is really helping us out.”The Aspen Times birthday was actually back in April. Since then, on page 15, the paper has been republishing, successively, a story or two from each year the paper has existed. The series concludes on Saturday with stories from 2006. The series has gone hand in hand with the Newspaper Rescue Project, a push by the Aspen Historical Society, The Aspen Times, Pitkin County Library and Colorado Historic Newspaper Project to save and digitize all Aspen-area newspapers published between 1881 and 1925.For more information, or to donate to the Newspaper Rescue Project, call the Aspen Historical Society at 925-3721. To see examples of the digitized newspapers, No need to R.S.V.P. for the party, just come ready to boogie.
