Letter: Thanks for supporting recreation

As the students prepare for another school year, Basalt Recreation would like to share what we have been working on this summer to improve facility use at Basalt Elementary School. With a generous donation from the Aspen Elks Lodge, we have been able to install adjustable hoops that will make the gym more functional and safer for a greater number of athletes. We now have four new adjustable hoops that will accommodate older and younger students using the gyms for practices and games and for classes taught in the gym. Basalt Recreation would like to thank the Aspen Elks Lodge for its support in our youth projects. We truly appreciate the dedication and generosity it provides for the youth of our valley.
