Letter: Deaf Camp Picnic on Saturday

Deaf Camp Picnic on Saturday

One of the great things about living in the Roaring Fork Valley is that our summers are just crammed with great festivals, concerts and events, but there’s one coming up this weekend that you shouldn’t miss. It’s the Deaf Camp Picnic in Snowmass Village.

The picnic is a Roaring Fork Valley tradition, sure to bring out a whole bunch of your neighbors and friends. Join us at the base area in Snowmass Village starting at about 4 p.m. Saturday for good food, great music and all kinds of fun, all in support of one of Aspen’s treasures, the Aspen Camp School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. The good news is that it is free.

While you’re enjoying the music, if you see a donation bucket, drop in a portrait of a dead president as a thank you to the Aspen Camp School and Snowmass Village for hosting the event, and you can feel good about the fact that you’ve helped to ensure the ongoing good work at the Aspen Camp School.
