Music history was made

Dear Editor:

The sixth, seventh and eighth grade and high school jazz band members would like to thank the following people in helping us achieve music history in Aspen. We entered not one, but two band floats in the Wintersköl parade!

It could never have happened without the active support and donations of the following: Diana Sirko, superintendent of schools; Rae Lampe and her art students; John Fisher, high school industrial art teacher; Bob Gonzales, Bob Von Flotow and Frank Le Beau, float building crew; Shay Stuzman, float driver/builder; Tom Nuernberg, float driver; and the Thrift Shop, sheet for decorating. We purchased hay for floats from T-Lazy 7 Ranch; balloons from Balloon Affairs and Accent On Wildflowers; got a generator from Aspen Rent-all; and got supplies from Carl’s Pharmacy.

We are indebted to Stuzman-Gerbaz Construction and Gould Construction for the gracious donation of the trucks, trailers and experienced drivers for the parade day! Let us know when you need some music!

Thanks to the parents for supporting music education in our schools and participation in our community.

Thanks for your belief in the students’ music education!

Nancy Beyea
