Thanks from Spring Board

Dear Editor:

The members of Spring Board would like to formally thank Aspen Skiing Co. for participating in Spring Board’s annual Spring Fling at Schneetag last weekend.

Traditionally, Spring Fling has been at Buckhorn Cabin on Aspen Mountain, but this year Spring Fling took place at Spider Sabich Cabin in conjunction with Skico’s Schneetag festivities. One dollar of each drink and food purchased went back to Spring Board, raising nearly $400! Additionally, Spring Board was given much larger exposure to the community and young people by having a presence at this event.

Recently, Spring Board brought on 10 new members including: Kristy Apple, Michael Barlow, Marina Chiasson, Chris Cohen, Chase Dillon, Betsy DeFries, Annie Pinkert, Riley Tippet, Barbara Weber and Margaret Woodward. Current members of the board include Kimbo Brown-Schirato, Cory Lowe, James Arnott, Jill Teehan, Christy Garfield, Adam McCurdy and Mar Naibi. We would like to thank the Spring Board members just rolling off of their terms for all of their hard work over the past two years.

Aspen Community Foundation created Spring Board in 1997, believing that communities benefit from the creativity, energy and intelligence of younger generations. Spring Board’s mission is to engage members of the younger generation of the Roaring Fork Valley and empower them to invest in their community through charitable giving and volunteerism. Spring Board has granted more than $465,000 to dozens of local nonprofits through the Spring Board Advised Fund at Aspen Community Foundation. To date, more than 100 young adults have been members of Spring Board, many of whom continue to be active leaders in their communities.

Thank you to Skico and our entire community for your support of Spring Board and Spring Fling!

Mar Naibi
