GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — The Board of Mesa County Commissioners proclaimed April 19-23, 2021, as Afterschool Professionals Appreciation Week in Mesa County and urges residents to join in on this special observance with appropriate events and displays of appreciation.

Mesa County is fortunate to have high-quality after-school programs, including Riverside Educational Center, Extended Hours, programs provided by Eureka! McConnell Science Museum, Grand Junction Parks and Recreation, and other District 51 school-based programs supporting students in grades K-12 during after-school hours.
