Letter: Thanks to Town Clean Up Day volunteers
On June 2, approximately 100 volunteers spent the morning to help keep Snowmass Village beautiful. Brush Creek Road, Carriage Way, the main village parking lots, Brush Creek Trail, various trailheads and Town Park were some of the main areas volunteers swept and cleaned, but that’s not all they did.
In addition to picking up trash around the village, volunteers also replaced a portion of the Melton Trail retaining wall using reclaimed lumber. The new lumber was salvaged from the Snowmass Village Recreation Center and was used to replace the old timbers that lined the trail.
After the work was done, volunteers were rewarded with lunch, prizes and fun. Lunch was served to 95 people by the Mountain Bayou, and excellent prizes donated by businesses throughout the community were handed out. The town’s Environmental Advisory Board also handed out swag and educational items as well as coordinated an electric vehicle ride and drive event. However, it was a rewarding day for participants even without the perks.
The town would like to thank the volunteers that came out for the 37th annual Town Clean Up Day and the businesses that sponsored or donated to the event:
Alpine Property Management
Alpine Bank, Snowmass
Big Hoss Grill
Clark’s Market, Snowmass
Destination Residence Snowmass
Four Mountain Sports
Luu Brothers Cleaner Express
Sundance Liquor and Gifts
The Westin Snowmass Resort
The town plans to keep the event going in 2018 and expects it will take place in late May 2018.
Businesses who would like to sponsor or donate to the event in 2018 are encouraged to email Rhonda Coxon, town clerk, at email@example.com.
