Colorado Grand rolls through Meeker, donates to cause

Eddie O'Brien, the community liaison for The Colorado Grand, presented a couple of checks Sept. 11 as the charitable organization's vintage sports cars rolled through town, with a stop at City Park, which included lunch served by the Meeker Lions Club. "We've been coming to Meeker for at least a half dozen times. We put on this event once a year. It's a four-day event that runs through the state of Colorado," O'Brien said. "We raise a lot of money. We'll give away between $300,000 and $400,000 per year to all of the communities we go through." O'Brien presented checks for $7,500 to the Meeker Lions Club and a $7,500 check for a local student going to a college or university in Colorado. Paul Jordan and Julie Pearce accepted on behalf of the Meeker Lions Club.
