Colorado Senior Lobby had a great 2016 Summer Social on August 20, 2016. A big thank you to all the attendees and Colorado Legislators that attended and to Former Governor Roy Romer.

At the event we honored six legislators with the Colorado Senior Lobby “Serving Our Seniors” award. Those honored included: State Senators Beth Huminek Martinez (R-Northglenn) and John Kefalas (D-Fort Collins), and Representatives Don Coram (R-Montrose), Jessie Danielson (D-Wheat Ridge), Joann Ginal (D-Fort Collins) and Lois Landgraf (R-Fountain). We also gave a special Lifetime Achievement Award to State Senator Pat Steadman, who represents Senate District 31 including downtown and north-central Denver and portions of Adams County. State Senator Pat Steadman grew up in Westminster and graduated from Westminster High School and Regis University.

This year we streamed the event to viewing locations in Grand Junction and Montrose.

Although the attendance was not high in those areas, we have proven the concept that streaming a state-wide annual event is beneficial for our members. We want to thank the Area Agency on Aging of Northwest Colorado who hosted a streaming location at the Mesa County Workforce Center in Grand Junction and Region 10 League for Economic Assistance & Planning who hosted a streaming event at their location in Montrose.

We also owe a big thank you to Covenant Village of Colorado located in Westminster, Colorado. They were the host for our main event location and provided the space for the event streaming and the refreshments. So thank you to all and we hope to see you next year at our Summer Social and Annual Meeting.

2016 Senior Day at the Capitol
Location: Colorado State Capitol

The Colorado Senior Lobby’s signature event is Colorado Senior Day at The Capitol. The event is an opportunity for seniors and members of the community to visit The Capitol and hear from their Legislators. In 2016 we celebrated our 35th year of hosting this wonderful event. The event was held at the Colorado State Capitol on Wednesday, March 30, 2016.As usual the Old Supreme Court Chambers was filled with seniors and from 9:30 to noon many legislators dropped by to address the group. In the rotunda outside of the chambers, our sponsors had tables with a wide variety of resources to share from government, non-profit and for-profit organizations that serve seniors.
