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.
The seventh annual Eckert Crane Days, the annual viewing of the sandhill cranes migrating north from New Mexico through Colorado's West Slope, will be March 16-18. Representatives from the Black Canyon Chapter of the Audubon Society (BCAS) will be at the viewing site east of Eckert at Fruitgrowers Reservoir, 9 to 11 a.m. each day, to answer questions and provide binoculars and spotting scopes.
