April 8, 2016
Colorado created the day to recognize concrete industry's importance
April 29, 2016 has been proclaimed as Concrete Day in Colorado. “The state of Colorado recognizes the concrete industry as important to further development in our state and appreciates the hard work, dedication, and the efficiency of its employees…” So reads a portion of Governor John Hickenlooper’s proclamation. "The concrete industry is an important contributor to Colorado's infrastructure and economy. We look forward to celebrating Concrete Day at the Capitol every year and recognizing the thousands of employees that are making a difference in our state," said Gov. Hickenlooper. The governor will be in attendance at this year’s event and giving brief remarks to attendees. Concrete Day at the Capitol will be held on the southeast corner of the Capitol grounds on April 29, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The concrete industry, represented by the American Concrete Pavement Assn.-Colorado/Wyoming Chapter, the Colorado Ready Mixed Concrete Assn., the Portland Cement Assn. – Rocky Mountain Region and the American Concrete Pipe Assn. will host a picnic lunch for Colorado legislators and their staff. The purpose of the event is to recognize the work of the Colorado legislature and their staffs, and to raise awareness of the importance of the concrete industry to the state of Colorado’s economic growth and sustainable development practices. Representative John Becker (R-HD 65) added, “I am looking forward to this year’s annual Concrete Day at the Capitol BBQ on April 29. The concrete industry’s contribution to transportation, infrastructure and residential building is vital to Colorado’s economy. I appreciate the hard work of the concrete industry professionals in building a stronger state.”
