“Highway clean-up campaign Saturday” announced the May 2, 1968 Aspen Times. “The group agreed to a proposal made by clean-up committee members Kind Woodward and John Cooley for the May 4 date. An earlier date was not held because of the unusually late snows, it was explained. This year’s campaign will be a contest between teams representing Snowmass-at-Aspen and Aspen, each working along the highway toward a central point. A keg of beer and other refreshments will be available at the point of meeting, it was stated.”
