We are celebrating our 10th Anniversary, once again with the organization with Sister Georgeanne Quinlan, BVM. This annual event has been a highlight for our NW Denver community. It has helped many residents, 60 years and over get information for vital services, provide free flu shots, and update them on current issues with our elected officials. It is wonderful to carry on this tradition”

Registrants will enjoy a free buffet lunch, and entertainment will be provided by Schmitt Music. The deadline for early registration for the event is Monday, September 30, 2012.
In continuing with this tradition, Councilwoman Shepherd’s Office is again fortunate to have the assistance of Sister Georgeann Quinlan, B.V.M., a long time Denver seniors’ resource advocate and service provider. Sister Georgeann says, “This resource day is a great opportunity for the seniors of Northwest Denver to find out what services are available to them. Many of these 40 resources are FREE SERVICES which seniors may not even know about! What a deal: Free lunch,affordable transportation, and a chance to talk with senior resource providers and elected officials! It has been a joy for me to work on this for the past 10 years.”
