Some residents of the Grand Valley met Saturday at Lincoln Park to celebrate the 16th anniversary signing of the Americans With Disabilities Act.

The picnic gathering was also attended by Grand Junction Mayor Jim Doody, and the Mesa County Commissioners. Some members of the disabilities community gave motivational speeches to remind people the importance of the Americans Disabilities Act.

The ADA, which was signed in 1992 by President George H. Bush, assures Americans with disabilities access to a number of services and properties.

The actual signing anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act is July 26th.
