Tales of yesteryear

Dear Editor:

Aren’t the fall colors just the best this year! Our annual Basalt Regional Heritage Society fall chat will be held at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 30, in the Basalt Library community room. We are excited to have Roaring Fork Valley children of Aosta immigrants as guests. Charles “Chuck” and Bobby Glassier Harris, former owners of Catherine Store, will share their lifelong memories. Chuck’s family, the Harrises, was one of the original families settling in the El Jebel area.

Another well-known name, Gerbaz, familiar successful businessmen and brothers, Ernest and Fred will tell tales of their days as youth in the area and then secrets to their successful careers and wonderful family stories.

Everyone is welcome to come enjoy, bring photos to share and get a glimpse of the valley’s past history.

Jane Duroux
