Aspen Square Daily News
Area golfers and supporters of Challenge Aspen are looking forward to this year's Vince Gill and Amy Grant Golf Classic, which takes place July 30 and 31st at the Aspen Golf Club. The annual gala evening and golf tournament supports Challenge Aspen’s mission of making possibilities for people with disabilities.
Here at Aspen Square we are delighted with our current weather pattern of bright sunny mornings and brief afternoon showers. Our flowers love their daily "drink" and our surrounding mountains remain green and dotted with wildflowers. With so much of the country experiencing unusually hot and dry weather this summer, our guests are thrilled to be reminded to bring a jacket for our typically cool evenings and early mornings. If that sounds good to you, come and get in on the "jacket weather" soon!
Tomorrow's epic endurance bike race, the 6th annual 12 Hours of Snowmass, is an important fundraiser for the Aspen Youth Center. Individuals and teams of up to eight people will test their endurance as they ride as many laps as they can up and down the trails of Snowmass Mountain ski area. Beginning at 7am, the riders will compete until 7pm, with the winner receiving a $2500 purse. To learn more about the Aspen Youth Center and the race, visit www.aspenyouthcenter.org.
