Do you  hear conversations about the lack of services, not enough resources, and not enough to do in Grant County? Here is a chance for the community to learn about what resources the area does have. How much do you know about ALL the different programs, services, and resources that ARE available right here in Grant County? That is why the Red Hot Children’s Fiesta (RHCF) is in its 17th year. The overall purpose of the Red Hot Children’s Fiesta is to provide a “one-stop-shop” for community members to learn about what resources, programs, and activities are available to support families and youth throughout the County. There are so many organizations that provide a huge variety of services or programs and this event brings them together! The goal of RHCF is to help close the gap between what is available and community awareness.

Come out to the 17th Annual Red Hot Children’s Fiesta on Saturday, September 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Penny Park, 1305 N Grant St. in Silver City. Sponsored by the Grant County Community Health Council, Hidalgo Medical Services, FORWARD NM of Southwest Center for Health Innovations, Imagination Library of Grant County, and Healthy Kids Healthy Communities.
