Commodity distribution will be held April 6

The U.S. Department of Agriculture will hold a commodity distribution from 7:30 to 8 a.m. Saturday, April 6, at the Montezuma County Fairgrounds, 30100 U.S. Highway 160, Cortez, and from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m., at the Dolores Fire Hall, 45 Railroad Ave. and in Mancos from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. at the United Methodist Church, 470 Grand Ave.

Participants are reminded that they must bring their own box for their commodities. The agriculture department cannot supply enough boxes for everyone.

For more information, if you would like to help with distribution, or if you haven't gotten your 2013 commodity card (cards are good for the calendar year), call 564-2772.

In Dolores, residents can register for a commodity card on Wednesdays at the Dolores Community Center from 11 a.m. to noon.
