In ever changing and challenging times, now as in the past, older parents, grandparents, and elders, “Ancianos,” have been the bedrock of their communities and families. They have historically and faithfully stepped up in times of need in order to stand in the gap to meet the needs of children, grandchildren and others in their communities. They do this in real time and they do it as an assumed duty without fanfare or expectation of reward or glory. 
They are the unsung heroes who give us life, nurture, and set the example and standard for humanity, and yet, societies, communities, and “we” many times take them and the example and value they represent for granted. But the Lord never does. He knows, and He knows that the responsibility for them is ours. They're his gift to us.
This year, La Familia will join like minded community members and organizations in two cities to either produce or collaborate in and support two efforts to recognize and celebrate elders, Denver and Rocky Ford, Colorado. Honoring our elders is a necessary and worthy pursuit, and yet, one which falls short  of the debt that we owe them. These are debts that cannot be repaid. But, we can say thank you! Please join us with your elders and loved ones as we can come together to say "Thank you!" 
On November 19, 2022, the Day of the Elders, Rocky Ford committee, Martinez Fire Protection of Denver, Arkansas Valley Community Partners, and the Francie Miller Memorial Fund of Rocky Ford will stage the “Dia de Los Ancianos - Day of the Elders” community eventin Rocky Ford, CO. The effort will coincide with the September 11th National Day of Grandparents observance. 
The event will offer a relaxed evening of family, food, music, and and dancing to Rocky Ford's own "Cascabel." There will be a recognition piece where elders of the community will receive RMPA Humanitarian Awards, one RMPA Social Justice Award, and one RMPA Veteran Service Award. Bring those you value and love.
The event will be held at the Gobin Building Event Center. It is a ballroom style format with all assigned and reserved seating. Table assignments will be made according to purchase date and table number on a "First-Come First Served Basis.When you receive your tickets, you will also receive a reserved pass for the table that you are assigned to.
