Volunteers urged to `Make a Difference’

Aspen Times Staff Report

Local residents are being encouraged to volunteer to make a difference in their communities and in the lives of others by participating in a volunteer project later this month.

“Make a Difference Day 1999” will be held Saturday, Sept. 25, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. It’s a national event that is being coordinated locally by the Aspen Valley Community Foundation and the Four Rivers Asset Building Communities Initiative.

Locally, projects will occur simultaneously in Aspen, Carbondale, Glenwood Springs, Parachute and Rifle. Projects in those towns include cleanup of neighborhoods and parks, the fixing up of schools and youth centers, improvements to area trails, and assisting nonprofits with painting, light carpentry and office projects.

All volunteers will receive a picnic lunch and a “Make a Difference Day 1999” T-shirt.

To register, call Aspen Valley Community Foundation at (970)-925-7887 or Four Rivers Assets at (970)-625-3141. Registration forms are also available at Alpine Banks.
