I’ve been a faithful fan of the Denver Zoo since 1965, when I was 10 years old. Colorado School District #14 would take us on a field trip to the Denver Zoo, and that’s where I fell in love with our precious Cookie. Now my sweet friend from the 4th grade goes with me every Monday to see our elephants. I’ve gotten really fond of them. The boys have such personality!
My childhood friend and I walk through the Zoo reminiscing about days gone by, and marveling at how wonderful everything looks today. I was able to take her to see Zoo Lights, and she had never seen such a magnificent sight—she cried at the beauty! You have treated me with such kindness and love over the years. We love you, Denver Zoo.
