Bank to honor historical society

Aspen Times writer

Aspen Times Staff ReportIn an effort to help preserve Aspen’s history, Community Banks of Colorado, Aspen, has announced it will honor the Aspen Historical Society as its Community Touch partner for the month of August. “The Aspen Historical Society plays a crucial role in preserving our city’s history,” said Howie Mallory, executive vice president of the Aspen branch, in a prepared statement. “We want to help build the community’s awareness of this vital nonprofit organization and its continuing contribution to Aspen’s cultural and historical richness.” The bank’s Mill Street branch will feature a display of the historical society’s current “Spirit of Aspen” exhibit, which includes panels on the ghost town of Ashcroft, the establishment of Aspen’s hospital and the famous Christmas dinner of 1880. Brochures about the historical society and a commemorative book entitled “The Spirit of Aspen” are included in the display.Participants of the Community Touch program, which began in January, have included the Aspen Valley Ski and Snowboard Club, the Girl Scouts, the Executive Service Corps of the Aspen Valley Community Foundation, the Aspen Art Museum, the Independence Pass Foundation, and the Susan G. Komen Foundation. “This program allows us to adopt some of the many worthy organizations that contact us throughout the year,” Mallory said. “This way we can leverage our enthusiasm for the organizations while promoting their core values, which as community partners we share.”
