The Elks really help

Dear Editor:

I have just been granted a scholarship from the Aspen Elks Board of Trustees to dance for the year and I can not explain how thankful I am.

It is such an honor to be able to dance in Aspen Santa Fe Ballet. Dancing releases a lot of stress for me and creates ways to express my emotions, it is very important for me to dance. My love for dance is very strong but our finances are not.

The Aspen Elks Board of Trustees is so generous and kind to us. The Elks really do care and share, they have helped us every time when we are in need of help. The Elks are amazing! They have helped so many young people like me grab hold of what they want. Thank you.

Lily Isaacson
