Delta United Methodist Church is again offering after-school care when children are released early from school. This outreach is for kindergarten-middle school children. Like last year, Delta County School transportation will have a designated bus for elementary school children to ride. They will be dropped off in the parking lot across from the church (near the fire station).
There is no charge for this program, and children will be provided snacks, crafts time, storytelling, games and help with homework. Volunteers are retired teachers and other staff and are first aid/CPR certified.
Fliers about the program can be obtained from the school's offices and permission slips should be returned to the schools or the church.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Delta County Board of Commissioners called a special meeting to consider the board's response to the Bureau of Land Management's preliminary Environmental Assessment (EA) concerning the lease parcels proposed for the December BLM sale.
Several people from the North Fork were present to provide input.
