The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America
in The State of Colorado

Organized in 1896

Howdy Colorado Dames! As your State Society President, I am honored and delighted to serve you all. Our Society was incorporated on July 2, 1896, so this year, we will be celebrating our Quasquicentennial, or 125th anniversary. Granted, COVID-19 has put a damper on meeting in person, but it is my sincere aspiration that we can plan and celebrate our long-standing purpose and vision.

I also want to thank each and everyone of you who have made our State Society the fantastic organization we can all be proud of, and to call ourselves Dames. Albeit, our future growth cannot be performed by one person. Please feel free to reach out to me to offer any and all suggestions which might further the growth and advancement of our beloved Colorado Society.

With Warm Dames Wishes (WWDW),
Constance "Stanzi" Lucy
Colorado State Society President
