Best people on earth

(This letter was originally addressed to the BPOE Elks.)

On behalf of the middle school football team players and coaches, I would like to thank the Youth Activity Committee and chairman Erik Carman for their their generous donation. The money was used to buy new game jerseys for the seventh- and eighth-grade teams.

The Elks’ generosity to the youth of the valley is a little-known secret. This committee sponsors youth football, basketball, hockey and baseball. If kids play it, the Aspen Elks Lodge gives money towards it.

I would like to thank the members, officers and all those great members who help out so much in the community. I am often asked what BPOE stands for. It must be the Best People On Earth.

Fred Brooks, assistant football coach
