Attend the Rocky Flats Retirees Breakfast at the Arvada American Legion Hall, 6230 W 60th Ave, Arvada on the first Thursday of each month. This gathering started many years ago as an informal gathering of a few retirees and has grown to an attendance of 60 to 80 retirees each month. This is a Homesteaders sponsored event. Come meet old friends and get caught up on what your Rocky Flats peers are doing now. You do not need to be a Homesteaders member to attend this breakfast, but you do need to be a former Rocky Flats Employee.
