Support is appreciated

Dear Editor:

The members of the Aspen Youth Council, funded in part by the Aspen City Council, would like to thank the community for their tremendous support for our recent valleywide dance.

The proceeds from this dance will allow us to provide two Aspen High School graduating senior scholarships and a summer gratis process for Aspen students ages 8 to 18 to participate in cultural, educational or recreational programs.

Aspen Youth Council would especially like to thank: Downvalley students for their enthusiastic participation; Brad Moore, Aspen theater manager for all his time and outstanding support; Chris and Sean Chu for light; Travis High and Johanna Payne for all that we asked; chaperones Sarah Hall, Jamie Mahaffey, Ray Aucoin and especially Brad Onsgard; DJ Nak Gawa; The Big Wrap, New York Pizza, Basalt Bistro, Takah Sushi, Little Ollie’s, Domino’s, Toppers, Red Onion, Johnny McGuire’s, Sno Beach, Woody Creek Tavern, Boogie’s, Poppycock’s, Hickory House, City Market, Paradise Bakery and the Aspen Recreation Center for gift certificates; the Aspen School District for allowing us the facility to sponsor this fund raiser; and anyone else we may have inadvertently omitted.

Your contributions and support were overwhelming and we sincerely appreciate all of your assistance,

The mission of the Aspen Youth Council, established in 2000, is a commitment to giving power to its community by empowering its youth. As a council, we will serve as a group of action, a mentor, a voice, and a bridge between the youth and the community.

The Aspen Youth Council welcomes participation from Aspen High School students. Contact the school office, 925-3760 or any of the current members if you’re interested in providing a voice for Aspen youth.

Look for future dances and fund-raisers sponsored by the Aspen Youth Council. Thanks again for supporting our valley youth.

Alina Roberts, Julie Young, Wes Graham, Tristan Mahaffey, Chicky Bartlett, Annabelle Berklund
