Business plans event honoring uranium and nuclear workers

Nuclear Care Partners has scheduled a free event honoring uranium and nuclear weapons production workers for their role in defending the United States.

The event is set for 10 a.m. to noon Oct. 30 at Las Colonias Park, 925 Struthers Ave. in Grand Junction. The event will include ceremonies as well as appetizers and prizes.

“This ceremony is one of the ways we like to say thank you,” said John Kelley, community outreach manager for Nuclear Care Partners. “We want former workers to truly feel valued, and we commend them for enhancing our country’s security. They sacrificed more than they knew, and we are committed to honoring their contributions.”

Nuclear Care Partners provides in-home health services to uranium and nuclear weapons production workers under federal law providing benefits to those who’ve developed illnesses from exposure to radiation and chemicals. For more information, call 628-7098 or log on to www.NuclearCarePartners.com.
