We are excited to announce that Senior Day at the Capitol 2019 has been rescheduled after the early March bomb cyclone cancelled our event. Apparently, Mother Nature had a better idea for the date than any of us. Our new date selected by the Board of Directors of Colorado Senior Lobby – with the best input we could get from Mother Nature – is April 11th.
Regards, Bob Brocker – President Colorado Senior Lobby

Thank you for attending Senior Day at the Capitol 2018

Governor John Hickenlooper addressing the crowd at Senior Day at the Capitol 2018

You did it!

You filled the Capitol with Your Presence, Your Voice and we hope you enjoyed your day!

We live streamed the morning session through our YouTube Channel and recorded the event. MetMedia is working on finalized versions which we will post on our YouTube Channel. For right now we have the unedited version of the morning session – all 3 hours of it! The morning session was hosted in the Old Supreme Court Chambers of the Denver Capitol.

“You have one of the most tremendous resources before you today which is an organization tuned into your issues that will actually take the time to train you how to be a citizen lobbyist. I really encourage you to take advantage of it …”

Rachel Zenzinger, Senate District 19
