Miracle on Main Street

Dear Editor:

My partner and I visited Aspen for two days. One night, after a wonderful meal at the Hickory House, I decided we should take your free bus because I was tired. Several hours later, I realized I know longer had my purse. I called the restaurant, and the staff was very helpful, but no purse had been found. Then I called RFTA, and Deborah was extremely kind and helpful by putting out an all-points message.

The only place I could think I may have left it was at the bus stop. Lo and behold, it was STILL there on the bench, untouched! As a resident of Houston, I can tell you this would be considered a miracle in my city.

Our visit was relaxing and fun, due to the many things to do here and the super-friendly people. Not surprisingly, we have discovered your residents (and visitors) are extremely helpful and honest, too.

Thank you, Aspen, for this gift, as well as a wonderful vacation.
