Trashmen give thanks

Dear Editor:

We wish to thank everyone who helped pull off an awesome NHL Alumni hockey game Saturday night at the Lewis Ice Arena. It was a great weekend we will not soon forget.

Huge thanks go out to Greg and Jane Hills, their staff, and Wily Manering for their never-ending generosity, hard work and dedication to local hockey and our community.

Thanks to Michael Goldberg and the staff at Matsuhisa for generously hosting Friday night’s events. Thanks to the city of Aspen, Aspen Ice Garden and the ARC for supporting hockey and providing great venues for all hockey players to enjoy.

Thanks to all the NHL players and their families who came to town and gave us a great game. We all appreciate your competitive edge, and are looking forward to a rematch next year. Lastly, thank you to all the hockey fans that came to watch the game Saturday night.

Chuck Carlson, our friend and teammate, loved hockey very much and shared that passion on and off the ice. In his honor, the money that was raised will provide opportunities for kids to learn to play and appreciate this great game.
