A job well done by Skico
I want to thank the Aspen Skiing Co. for doing such an outstanding job with the snow on the mountain. We went up (the weekend of Dec. 2 and 3) and were so impressed with the skiing under such minimal snow conditions. Thank you for all of your hard work.

A boost from Aspen Community Foundation
During this spirit of giving, Aspen Elementary School and our local area preschools would like to thank the Aspen Community Foundation for their generous support of the Colorado Preschool Program. Providing grant monies for summer school tuition to the Aspen School District and preschools provides a continuous experience in an enriched environment for its Colorado Preschool Program students. The following summer school programs should be commended for their willingness to support Colorado Preschool Program students: Aspen School District Cottage, Early Learning Center, Little Red School House and the Wildwood School. Aspen Community Foundation's continued support improves preschooler's quality of life and helps ensure their readiness for kindergarten. The collaboration of the Aspen Community Foundation with valley-wide school districts and preschools provides ongoing successful academic and social experiences for its children. Thank you again!

Grateful for Aspen Mountain workers
To the snowmakers,
I wanted to say a big thank-you to the Aspen Mountain snowmakers. You have been hustling and I must say your sweat and tears have paid off in full. The skiing was better than could have been expected Dec. 8. A big thank-you to all of the other employees — those making the lifts turn, making folks smile, and for those behind the scenes as well.
Please hope for low temperatures with no snow in the forecast.
Hickory House gives back with some help
I apologize the delay in getting out this letter but better late than never. We just finished up with my 19th year hosting the Hickory House Ribs annual Thanksgiving meal. We raised $5,700 for Mountain Rescue with everyone's generous donations.
I would like to specially thank the following people and businesses: my staff (Hickory House), the best staff in Aspen; US Food Service and Neal Henley, The Aspen Times, Paradise Bakery, Lisa Joe "All Things Sweet," the Luu Brothers and their families, Chris King and his family, Aspen Catering, Alsco Linen, and all of the volunteers.
Thank you all for helping to put on this great community event. We hope to see you all next year.
