Community Pride Day in Grand Valley

The annual Community Pride Day, sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Grand Valley/Parachute, the Battlement Mesa Company and the Town of Parachute, is scheduled for Saturday, May 6. Community Pride Day is an area-wide volunteer effort to clean up our neighborhoods, and provide the opportunity to dispose of accumulated unwanted items.
