As the city of Denver celebrates 160 years since its founding, Mayor Michael B. Hancock has created a new community project inviting senior residents to share their thoughts on the future. Denver’s Next 160 asks for words of wisdom on how to preserve the city’s way of life.
At the Senior Holiday Luncheon, Hancock shared the first letter, written by his mother, Scharlyn Hancock, according to a news release.
“My advice to the next generation is to remember that the people have made this city great. Work to be an asset to Denver by getting the best education you can; be safe and keep your neighbors safe. Keep your health, mind and body strong, and for the good of all of us strive to be the best you be,” the letter read.
The mayor’s office will be sharing responses from Denver’s Next 160 on social media platforms using #DenversNext160, as well as on the city website and at events.
To send a letter, use DenversNext160@denvergov.org. People can also mail responses to Mayor’s Office, Attn: Denver’s Next 160, 1437 Bannock St., Denver, Colorado 80202. People can also share on social media using #DenversNext160.
