Letter: A great party

I wanted to tell everyone how pleased we were with the turnout of the Captain’s Club party Feb. 20 at the Aspen Youth Center! The Aspen High School students were so thankful to us for having the party for them and were excited for a place to go after the hockey game to hang out with their friends — eat, dance, sing karaoke and play games. We had more than 150 kids attend. That’s actually one-quarter of the student body!

I also wanted to send a big thank-you to all of the board members of the Valley Partnership for Drug Prevention; our parent chaperones (Sarah, Lori, Dan, Chris and Sherrill); the Captain’s Club Kids; the Aspen Recreation Center staff; the Aspen Youth Center staff; the Aspen High School staff; the “winning” Aspen hockey team, athletic staff and director; the Police Department; the Sheriff’s Office; and especially Sue Smedstad, who singlehandedly fed all of these kids (OK, she had a little help from Domino’s) thank you Domino’s!

We are so proud of all of our kids and excited to keep this healthy momentum. We look forward to our next event — we hope to see the entire student body there!

It really does take a village, and we could not do any of this without all of your support!

Thank you all so very much!

Tricia McIntyre

Captain’s Club mentor and board member, Valley Partnership for Drug Prevention
