ADL Governor’s Holocaust Remembrance Program

ADL 100 logoThe Mountain States office of the Anti-Defamation League will host its 32nd Annual Governor’s Holocaust Remembrance Program on Tuesday, April 9, 2013 from 6:00 – 7:30 pm.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound Too," because I'm sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. My buddies know me as "Rocky." I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was adopted from the Humane Society of Boulder Valley and have many friends there also looking for homes.
