Thanks, from some seniors

Dear Editor:Over the past five years, my husband and I have been living in Aspen most of the year. The senior center has been a large part of our lives living in Aspen. My husband is legally blind, and at no time has Marty (the director) or Mary and Natalie not been there for all our needs. We have developed many friendships at the center that are so valuable to us. We have timely, interesting lectures, holiday parties, music recitals by the students of the Music School and day trips to various spots. One most recent one was a guided tour of the Braille Trail. Those of us not legally blind learned so much about detecting elements around us. Most of our health issues are discussed in easy, understandable language.Julie and Cathy are our fitness exercise gurus. Although I grunt and groan throughout the class, I always feel better, and maybe we even look better. Doug, our master chef, sees to it that our lunches are tasty, plentiful and well balanced, with a choice of fresh fruit or a delicious pie or chocolate cake.Our life in Aspen would sorely be lacking if the senior center was not around to continue serving all the needs of our many senior residents. We are so grateful to the county for their support.Micki and Sani RothbergAspen
