Vail photo: Butterfly launch Wednesday
Vail, CO Colorado
VAIL, Colorado ” Thousands of butterflies will take to the skies above the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens in Vail, Colorado Wednesday around noon when local third graders will release the butterflies they’ve been raising in their classrooms over the past few months.
Local musician Helmut Fricker will perform his popular Austrian alpenhorn and squeezebox act during the release. Call 970-476-0103 or visit http://www.bettyfordalpinegardens.org for more information.
While it will be postmaster Elizabeth Turner’s first busy season in Avon, it’s far from her first holiday-shipping crunch.
