Town gears up for fall and winter programs

On September 12, from 5:30 to 7 p.m., the Town of Golden recreation services team is hosting the annual community connections and fall registration night.

The expo-style evening provides an ideal place for groups to share their goals and objectives, and for the public to take in dynamic displays and demonstrations from the many recreational opportunities Golden has to offer. It’s also a great way for organizations to network with each other.

This year’s event promises to be both informative and fun with a broad range of community interest groups showcasing their services. There will also be children’s activities for the young and young at heart.
