Fulfilling the mission

Dear Editor:

Anyone who has visited the Lewis Ice Arena or the Aspen Ice Garden has seen young figure skaters practicing tirelessly.

Many of these young skaters belong to the Aspen Skating Club (ASC.) The ASC is a local, nonprofit sports club serving students from all over the valley. We feel very fortunate to have incredible facilities and the support of the city of Aspen to conduct programming, regional competitions and skating shows.

On behalf of the Aspen Skating Club skaters and families we would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the Elks Lodge No. 224 for their generous grant and for hosting our awards banquet. Once again the Elks Lodge has shown their ongoing dedication to local community sports programs that benefit both children and community.

The mission of the Aspen Skating Club is to provide a safe, high-quality athletic program that fosters a positive learning experience and supports the art and sport of figure skating. One of our major goals is to use donations to help us keep costs down for all skaters. Thank you again for helping us to fulfill this mission. We truly appreciate all you are doing for our club and the Aspen community!
