Now is the time to start thinking about what activities or jobs kids can do this summer and the youth fair is a great place to get information and ideas.

The Summer Youth Options Fair offers kids of all ages - and their parents - the chance to learn about summer camps, sports, volunteer and job opportunities in Grand Junction.

The event, sponsored by Mesa County Libraries and the Grand Junction Chamber of Commerce gives people the opportunity to get information about the many options available for youth in the Grand Valley without the hassle of having to contact several different agencies separately.

The Youth Options Fair is April 7 from 4:00 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. at Grand Mesa Middle School. The event is free and open to all school aged children and their parents.
