A party was held mid-March at the Aspen Meadows to celebrate the open space, parks and historic preservation at the new residential development called Fox Crossing at the base of Smuggler Mountain. The party included dinner and dancing and was hosted by Camilla and Raymond Auger, Harris Cahn and the Fox Crossing partners. Camilla told the gathering that it was a celebration because the project includes 10 acres of open space on the Hunter Creek Trail and a children’s park in front of the Centennial housing. Harris Cahn explained that Camilla got the ball rolling on the project and just kept going until it was accomplished. Guests of honor were Commissioner Dorothea Farris and Community Development Director Chris Bendon. Special toasts were given to Jeff Woods and Brian Flynn of the Aspen Parks Department; Historic Preservation Officer Amy Guthrie, Martha Cochran and Shannon Meyer of the Aspen Valley Land Trust, and special thanks were given to Connie Harvey, Tim McFlynn, Jim Ward and Vitashka Kirshen.
