Senior Day at Capitol set for March 21
For Life After 50
Senior Day at the Capitol will take place on March 21.
First, you don’t have to be a senior to attend, you just need to have an interest in issues impacting seniors. This is a very special event organized by Colorado Senior Lobby. If you have not attended before, plan to do so this year. Your voice and your membership in Colorado Senior Lobby can help preserve senior funding in Colorado and help set the direction of senior services in the future.
At the event, you will hear from legislators, elected officials, and Senior Day at The Capitol Sponsors that serve seniors. The morning session starts out at the Capitol located at 200 E. Colfax Ave. in Denver. Seniors are hosted in the historic Old Supreme Court Chamber in the North 2nd floor mezzanine of the Capitol.
A continental breakfast is provided starting at 8 a.m., and the morning program starts at 9 a.m.. From 8 to 9 a.m., you can visit exhibitor tables set up in the north rotunda plus tour the Capitol.
The actual morning session starting at 9 a.m. features State Legislators who join us in the Old Supreme Court Chamber to talk about senior issues and legislation. The Governor, Speaker of the House, Senate President, and all Legislators are all invited (schedules pending). This is a free event with no reserved seating; however, priority is given to seniors and the disabled.
The afternoon session is being held at Scottish Rites Masonic Center located at 1370 Grant St. This historic building is just southeast of The Capitol. Box lunches will be offered and can be paid for online at a cost of $10 each or send in an order form with check.
Attendees are welcome to bring their own lunch. The afternoon program will feature a discussion of senior legislative issues led by Colorado Senior Lobby featuring organizations that serve seniors and legislators.
The morning session will be streamed online, but attendance is encouraged – for all ages!
