Lots of sympathy offeredMany thanks from our family to our friends for all the cards, phone calls, and flowers during the time of our loss.The family of Rose ChaseNew Castle, Grand Junction, Glenwood SpringsPeppino’s Pizza helps out ELL studentsI want to thank Tom and Peppino’s Pizza for having my third-grade ELL (English Language Learners) class come visit. Not only did the students get to learn new vocabulary such as “yeast,” “knead,” and “herbs,” but they also got a hands-on tour of the kitchen. Tom generously offered each of them their own dough to work into a pie crust. Two were chosen to make into pizza to share. This kind of experience has enormous educational value. It builds background knowledge, and helps encourage community connections. Thanks Peppino’s! P.S. Great pizza!Wendy ManciniCarbondale Elementary SchoolMixin’ it up at Mr. T’sWe would like to express our gratitude to everyone who stopped by our Chamber After Hours Mixer on March 18.

Congratulations to Randy Russell, winner of the shamrock search; Roberto Macias, winner of the nail toss; Robert Kozak, winner of the excavator-egg pick-up contest and Maria Kozak, winner of the business card drawing.

Hooray for John Worcester, city attorney, who was a key author of the plan.I’ve always cringed a bit when I said I lived “near Aspen,” wanting to add, “No, I’m not a self-indulgent billionaire.” Now I’ll be proud to be associated with such environmental good guys.I hope other towns in the valley will follow suit. Ann MacLeodBasaltAspen Elks help Basalt RecBasalt Recreation Department would like to express our thanks to the Aspen Elks Lodge for the financial support they provide. The money they donate helps us purchase new equipment and is the main source of our scholarship program for our participants. Last year we were able to provide over $2,000 for local children to participate in drama, arts, and sports activities. As registration begins for spring and summer programs, we can be assured that no child will be without the opportunity to learn and participate in any of our programs.Dorothy HowardBasalt Recreation Department
