May 8, 2019 –
Every May, the Administration for Community Living leads our nation’s observance of Older Americans Month. The 2019 theme, Connect, Create, Contribute, encourages older adults and their communities to:
- Connect with friends, family, and services that support participation.
- Create by engaging in activities that promote learning, health, and personal enrichment.
- Contribute time, talent, and life experience to benefit others.
Springtime enlivens the forests of our beautiful Rocky Mountains. Colorado's culturally modified trees (CMTs), have been altered but not permanently harmed for a specific purpose. The Ute Peoples of Colorado practiced cultural modification on various pines, junipers and even aspen. Join us in the library’s Community Room for a presentation on CMT’s, with light refreshments & the company of great friends. Folks who have difficulty walking longer distances may be dropped off at the front doors of the library.
