Pat Fallin, Joe Edwards and Michael Kinsley are the 2013 inductees into the Aspen Hall of Fame, the organizations announced Friday.
The hall honors those who have had a significant and lasting impact on the Aspen/Snowmass communities economically, physically, spiritually or intellectually, have demonstrated inspirational leadership, and have made major contributions in the cultural, sporting and/or civic arenas.
For more than 40 years, Fallin was instrumental in Aspen’s Sister Cities program, the League of Women Voters, the city’s election commission, Planning and Zoning Commission, City Council, Wheeler Associates, Snowmass/Aspen Council for the Arts and the Basalt Library Board.
Edwards and Kinsley served as Pitkin County commissioners and helped develop systems for growth management, transportation, and the trails and bicycle system as well as the affordable housing program. Edwards was an advocate for establishing Aspen’s pedestrian malls and Kinsley currently channels his creative talents into landscape painting.
Fallin, Edwards and Kinsley will be honored at the annual Aspen Hall of Fame banquet Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013, in the refurbished Hotel Jerome. For information on the organization and the banquet invitation, visit aspenhalloffame.org.
