Well done, Troop # 201
A hearty and long overdue thank-you goes out to Aspen’s own Boy Scout Troop # 201, as well as their civic minded families and friends.
This spirited group worked several Saturdays early this fall and took on the formidable task of straightening and leveling the many crooked, sunken memorial headstones located throughout the Red Butte Cemetery here in Aspen. Outfitted with only shovels, heavy pry bars and a wheelbarrow, they took on this job of righting these stones, many of which weighed several hundred pounds. It was a difficult challenge, for sure, and they all went about their business with determination and cheerfulness. It was a perfect example of teamwork and also obvious that a good time was had by all.
Thank you, Mark Pearson, family and friends and everyone who helped … you know who you are. It matters a lot. This beautiful place looks even better, thanks to you.
