Swim team appreciates Elks
Dear Editor:The Aspen Speedos Swim Team would like to express our appreciation to the Aspen Elks Lodge #224 for their support of the swim team.The Elks have been a sponsor of our team in the past, and now in 2006, they have again lent their support to the children on the team. This support has helped to provide equipment and training for the children and coaches on the team, and has also allowed us to now offer a developmental program whereby young children can learn the basic strokes of what is considered a lifelong sport.It is also because of help from organizations such as the Elks that we will again be hosting a swim meet this summer. We anticipate that this meet will be just as successful as our first ever swim meet held this past year, with nearly 250 young swimmers from western slope teams attending.We are again proud to have been selected by the Elks for their assistance and are tremendously grateful for their support. We proudly display their name on the team’s banner that hangs in the ARC aquatic center. We encourage you to support the Elks whenever you have the opportunity.In April, the team will be hosting its ’06 season informational meeting. It is a chance to learn about the team and to see why the Elks is a sponsor of our team. Visit the team website (aspenspeedos.org) in early April for more information.Thank you again Aspen Elks Lodge #224, from the swimmers, coaches and parents of the Aspen Speedos.Greg KarausPresident, Aspen Speedos swim teamAspen
