Generations of Denverites will always associate summer with memories of the original Elitch Gardens amusement park. Revisit the historic Theatre in the Gardens on Thursday, July 11, from 5:30-7:00 for “Elitch Elixirs,” a special happy hour event presented by Historic Denver, Inc.

DWPC member Debra Faulkner will portray the beloved co-founder of the original gardens and theater and the subject of Faulkner’s biography, Mary Elitch Long: First Lady of Fun (Filter Press).

Mary was an honorary member of the DWPC, and her portrait graces the main room of our clubhouse above the piano.
