What goes around, comes around
Dear Editor:Thank you to The Aspen Times for your recent article telling people about the estate sale and the great job of salvaging at the Boomerang Lodge (“Boomerang isn’t coming back,” June 1).And, thank you to Steve Stunda and Tripp Adams of the lodge for their diligence in maximizing the salvage of the building and their generosity in donating all of the proceeds to Habitat for Humanity here in the Roaring Fork Valley. They even hired a crew to help extract more materials to make them available for reuse. What a wonderful example of repurposing as many materials as possible so people can utilize them in their building plans … and keeping them out of the landfill.The money generated from the sale will be instrumental in helping Habitat to work with another needy partner family to build them a simple safe affordable home in the valley.P.S.: For the record, the Boomerang Lodge IS coming back and will be reopening in the fall of 2008, with hotel lodging available.Scott GilbertBoard presidentHabitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley
