Silver City, NM – Western New Mexico University Foundation's annual Hats in the Garden is scheduled for Sunday, October 1, 2017, at 4:00 p.m. in the WNMU Alumni Gardens, adjacent to Hunter Hall.

The Silver City Rotary Auction and Benefit Gala in Partnership with First American Bank on October 7th will have as one of its beneficiaries the Silver City Gospel Mission's Sierra House program.

Sierra House is the name of the building next to the Gospel Mission (see attached picture), which was purchased at a generously discounted price from Arthur L. Sierra. The building is being used as a transitional shelter for women and children who seek to integrate back into the community after a period of homelessness or release from a rehabilitation program. In some cases, the Sierra House program serves women who have gone through Drug Court and who need residential housing in order to meet the Court's requirement for their release.

Kick off the Gila River Extravaganza with a special Monsoon Puppet Theater Parade. The parade will lead revelers down to Big Ditch Park where the party continues with more kid- and family-centered fun. We'll have a variety of booths to enjoy tastings of native plant foods, DIY demonstrations of how to make native plant foods and utilitarian products. Enjoy spoken word poetry by Elise Stuart and Raven Drake and music by Miguel Santistevan, Big Ditch Crickets, Andrew Dahl-Bredine & Friends, The Black Teas, and Caliente. The Fort Sill Apache Tribe Fire Dancers with the Gooday Family will return for an encore performance.
