President’s Drop in to Visit Grand Junction From Time to Time
President's Day is coming up Monday., February 19. Does the Commander in Chief ever drop in on Grand Junction? Sure, every once in a while. Take a look at the better part of 70 years of Presidents, and a first lady or two, or three, visiting Western Colorado.
With the exception of two photos, all of the images in the gallery above were captured by late Daily Sentinel photographer Robert Grant.
In no particular order, the photos include Presidents Truman, Eisenhower, Ford, Reagan, Bush, Obama, and Trump. Granted, in some cases, the images show candidates making campaign stops prior to their being elected to office.
Keep your eyes open for recognizable Western Colorado icons such as Mt. Garfield, the train station, and downtown.
In the event you've ever felt neglected here in Western Colorado, here's proof Washington DC does in fact drop in on us every once in a while.
Please keep in mind the Grand Junction Central Branch of the library, along with the Clifton and Fruita branches will be closed on Monday. The Orchard Mesa, Collbran, DeBeque, and Palisade branches of the library will be closed on Saturday, the 17th.
