Special presentation — "Exotic Animal Dentistry" -—- in the Parish Hall of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, 3549 Navajo St. (map). Enjoy a different and unusual presentation by our own, and long time member, Dr. Peter Emily. If you love animals, and even if you do not, this presentation will take you into a different world.

There are more that 20,000 wild animals in about 800 shelters in the United States alone. This is not counting Zoo animals. These animals are full of dental disease. The shelters are barely able to feed them. The Peter Emily Foundation treats these shelter animals all over the world, including Italy. This slide presentation will show some of the more interesting and sometimes funny cases and their treatments. This is a very fine "show and tell" that the audience will love.

11th Oct. Sat. — Columbus Day Parade
The highlight of Colorado Italian Heritage Month is the Columbus Day Parade. The first recorded ceremony commemorating Columbus in America occurred in 1792 in New York, 300 years after the famous voyage. That same year there was a monument dedicated to Columbus in Baltimore, Maryland and in 1892 a statue raised in New York City, and replicas of the three ships displayed at the Chicago Exposition. In 1905, Colorado became the first state to observe Columbus Day, with other states following through 1937 when President Roosevelt declared that every October 12th was to be recognized as Columbus Day. In 1971, the observed day became the second Monday in October.

This year, the Columbus Day Parade will be held in downtown Denver, on Saturday October 11, 2014. Details of the parade route and time can be found on the Columbus Day Parade web site .
