Lunch Loops project receives $10,000 check from Lions Club

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - The Lunch Loop trailhead is one of the most popular trailheads in Mesa County, seeing over one hundred and twenty thousand users a year.

The trail will be seeing improvements to make it even better for those of all ages and abilities thanks to the Grand Junction Lions Club. The Lions Club has chosen the Lunch Loops Project as one of nineteen community organizations to receive money this year from their annual Carnival and Parade. The Colorado West Land Trust club got a $10,000 check today to make some specific changes.

“Currently the trailhead has really no place to sit and there’s no shade. A number of years ago, we met with the public to determine what they wanted to see for improvements out at the trailhead and shade was one of the biggest ones,” says project manager for Colorado West Land Trust Libby Collins.

The Colorado West Land Trust told us that the money from The Lions Club was especially helpful in spurring more donations for the shade shelters.
