Girl Scout Troop 265 donates Peace PoleAs a gift to the community of Basalt and the Roaring Fork Valley, Girl Scout Troop 265 recently dedicated a Peace Pole, which stands next to the Basalt Town Hall.If you are in Basalt, please take a quiet moment to read the plaque which sits next to the pole. The girls designed the Peace Pole and wrote the poem themselves, and it was a culmination of two years of work. This was their final project to complete the Girl Scout Silver Award, which is the highest award that can be earned by a Girl Scout between the ages of 11 and 14. The many requirements of this award expand girls abilities, and help them explore careers, gain leadership skills, foster self-improvement and benefit the community.The completion of the final project would not have been possible without the help of many people. We would especially like to thank Vaughn Shafer and Efrain R., of Bare Bones Choppers; Laurie, of Iron Arts & Interiors; Sam Gonzalez, of the Gonzalez Tradition; Joseph and Nancy Maison, of A Great Find; Spudsy and all the guys at Vaughns shop; Colorado Laser and Marketing; Cindy and Chet Zajac, of CZ Inc.; the Aspen Times; Access Roaring Fork; Victor Gerdin; Mayor Duroux; the Basalt Town Council; Bill Effing; and everyone else in the town of Basalt, especially Bob and John. We apologize if anyone was accidentally omitted, it was not intentional.D.D.
