The Bench/Bar Happy Houris held on the second Thursday of odd-numbered months. The happy hour is a chance for members of the local legal community to meet and socialize, with an aim to build camaraderie among its members. We encourage judges, attorneys, judicial staff, and paralegals/legal assistants from all practice areas (even retired) to attend. Feel free to invite significant others. Because the location changes each month, watch your email, The Messenger, or the Larimer Bar’s calendar for happy hour dates and locations. For more information, contact Elyse Ritchie at 970-356-5666 or email her at email@example.com.
