On Oct. 17, Spring Board held its annual Give Some Get Some fundraiser at the Cantina in Aspen. Through the generous support of individuals and local businesses, we raised more than $11,500 to grant to local youth-serving nonprofits through the Spring Board Advised Fund at Aspen Community Foundation. This process gives the young adult members of Spring Board the opportunity to start giving back to the community at an early age while gaining the skills and experience of being on a nonprofit board. Give Some Get Some is critical to achieving the Spring Board’s mission of engaging our generation in the Roaring Fork Valley, and empowering them to invest in their community through charitable giving and volunteerism. The Spring Board is grateful to the following supporters of this fundraiser: donors: Alpine Bank and Centurion Partners. Event sponsors: The Cantina, DJ Dylan and Platinum Productions, Flying Dog Brewery.

The Institute for Civic Achievement wishes to thank all of those who contributed to the highly successful Biz-Opoly Symposium on Nov. 9, 2007. The speakers, who donated all or part of their time and resources, included Patti Hof of the Grand Junction Economic Partnership, Kim Moore of the Aspen Spa, Dave Hicks of Sterling Innovations in Lakewood, and Willard Barth of Willard Barth Enterprises. All of our speakers were praised for their informative and dynamic presentations. A special thanks goes to the symposium sponsors, US Bank, Staples, and NRC Broadcasting; and also to the Glenwood Chamber Resort Association, without whom the symposium could not have been the success it was. We are grateful for the support from all, and for the participation of the area’s business community for attending this event. Tom Fleming and Jerry PradierInstitute for Civic Achievement Inc.
