Basalt history comes alive

Dear Editor:

The Mt. Sopris Historical Society would like to extend a hearty thanks to the community for its first “Museum Week,” during which more than 225 schoolchildren came to the historical museum for a fall field trip.

There were talks, story readings, potato sack races, treats and art projects, all with a focus on Carbondale’s historic past. The Aspen Spring Board provided a grant funding the project, and many teachers and volunteers made the week one to remember. The museum cabin was filled with the sound of kids’ laughing and talking while they learned about the early days of their community.

Many thanks to everyone who helped with this exciting project.

Carol Klein, board member

Mt. Sopris Historical Society
