Duane Scott to celebrate 90 years

An open house to celebrate the 90th birthday of Duane Scott will be held from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, July 7, at the Rifle Senior Center, 50 Ute Ave.

Duane was born July 7, 1923, in Tempe, Ariz., and moved to the family ranch on East Divide Creek when he was 16. He wed his high school sweetheart, Annie Keller, and they were married 57 years until her passing in 2001. Your presence is the only present. No other gifts, please.

Dalby, Wendland & Co. volunteers help construct home for local families

Employees of Dalby, Wendland & Co. traded in their adding machines for hammers and saws on May 30 to participate in a team-build to help Habitat for Humanity Roaring Fork Valley (RFV) construct its newest family home. The duplex home, located in Silt, was in its early stages of build. The DWC team learned some valuable framing skills, and the day proved to be very productive.

DWC Principal and team-build volunteer Lynn Kleager said, “We had fun working together outside of the office doing something totally different while at the same time giving back to our community and feeling good about the contribution we made.”

This is the second year DWC has participated in a team build. The event is so popular among employees that a lottery is held each year to determine which staff members win a spot on the team.

DWC would like to thank Habitat for Humanity RFV for making homeownership a reality for families in our community. To learn how you can help too, visit, or call 970-309-3088 to volunteer.

Friedrich-Webster engagement

Patricia “Patti” Friedrich and Jerome P. “Jay” Webster Jr. became engaged on June 14 in a log cabin at Jenny Lake Lodge in Grand Teton National Park, Wyo.

In 1986, Jay moved to Aspen from Princeton, N.J., and Patti from Detroit, Mich., in 1991. Jay worked in Princeton University administration from 1966 until 1981. Subsequently, he worked in private investments, as president of Jayweb Co. Inc., which he closed in 1996. Patti was employed as a legal secretary in the Detroit and Aspen areas.

Jay is originally from New York, N.Y., and Patti from Detroit. They met shortly after Patti arrived in Aspen, and they have been close friends for 22 years.

The couple plan to marry in Aspen in late September.
