On Saturday, March 2, 2019 Colorado Gerontological Society is hosting their major senior event, “The Salute”. This year the event is “The Salute to Wild West”. Colorado Gerontological Society is celebrating its 30th year in 2019 of hosting this event. This year’s “Salute” recognizes the history of the west and celebrates the frontier spirit that built Colorado. The culture of the West will be on full display, from country and rock n’ roll music to cowboy poetry, with historical exhibits from the History Colorado Center, the Forney Museum of Transportation and the Buffalo Bill Museum, Wild West Bingo, and everything in between! Wear your best Wild West costume for a chance to win our Grand Prize, tickets to see Neil Diamond in concert!
