City of Grand Junction
As parents, there are few things that we value above the health and safety of our children. Any parent of a high school or college bound son or daughter knows the concern that the influence of peers often outweighs mom’s or dad’s input.
The Grand Junction Police Department would like to invite parents, as well as high school and college aged young adults, to join us for a frank discussion about how we can equip our young people to make safe, smart choices that can help protect them and their friends. Officer Suzette Freidenberger, a 13 year veteran of the Grand Junction Police Department, offers a candid presentation about how to navigate the many choices with which young people are confronted. In settings where alcohol and/or drugs are present, an ill-considered choice can have long term consequences. We will be joined by a panel of guests, including health care professionals, school resource officers, and other invested community members.
It is important to empower our sons and daughters to recognize these serious circumstances and be ready to make sound decisions that can protect them and their peers. Parents, please know that this will be a candid discussion, with frank language and content. We would strongly encourage parents to attend with their high school and college age children, and be part of the conversation.
When: Tuesday, September 8, 6:30pm
Where: Grand Junction Police Department, 555 Ute Avenue
Please contact Heidi Davidson at (970)549-5114, or at firstname.lastname@example.org, to RSVP or with questions.
Join us this Saturday, September 14, for our Yard Sale for United Way. All of the items have been donated by Grand Junction Police Department, City of Grand Junction, and Mesa County Sheriff’s Office employees and volunteers. The money we raise goes directly to United Way of Mesa County, which in turn supports local programs that help better our community and those who live here.
We’ll be set up in the dirt parking lot at 7th St. and Pitkin Ave.
Come in the morning for breakfast burritos or swing by in the afternoon for hot dogs, chips and soda pop!
