As a lingering part of a Christmas charity fundraiser, one city official got dirty for a good cause today.
City manager Laurie Kadrich helped the crew at Orchard Mesa Cemetery dig a grave. This past holiday season city officials did all sorts of "dirty jobs" around Grand Junction as part of its "adopt a family" program. Kadrich raised the most money and therefore was chosen by her colleagues to dig a grave. And she said she's always admired cemetery workers for their hard work.
Through the fundraiser the city was able to adopt seven families this past holiday season.
