Thanks, Elks

Dear Editor:On behalf of all the players in Aspen Junior Hockey from the first year 4- and 5-year-old players to the Aspen High School seniors competing in this weekend’s state playoffs, I would like to recognize the Aspen Elks Club for their years of support in providing scholarship funds for kids who want to play hockey in Aspen. Each year, the Elks makes it possible for many kids to play hockey, and each year some of our teams end up competing for state championships.Many years ago, the Aspen Elks decided to help the kids in the Roaring Fork Valley who wanted to play sports. Through their generous contributions each year, it is possible for many kids to participate in ice hockey. Our program is small compared to many in the state, and every little bit of help we receive from the community goes a long way to help the kids. Thanks again to the Elks, and I hope the Aspen community realizes what a great asset you are for the boys and girls growing up here.Rick Newtonpresident, Aspen Junior Hockey
