Our Atomic Past and Our Glowing Future

The Golden History Center (923 10th St.) will host the final event in their Fall Lecture Series today at 5:  Golden and Rocky Flats: A Nuclear Past.  Rocky Flats was a nuclear weapons production facility between Golden and Boulder that operated from 1952 to 1992. Dr. Fred Fraikor will speak about the relationship between Rocky Flats, Golden, and the Cold War. $3; members free.

Mayor Sloan needs one Golden child to help her flip the switch that will illuminate our downtown holiday lights at this year’s Candlelight Walk!  Golden residents between the ages of 5 and 10 can fill out an entry form at the Visitors Center.  On November 26th, the Mayor will draw one name to see who gets to make Golden glow!  See the City’s website for the details!
