This year, in addition to all of the new downtown lights and decorations, Silver City MainStreet hosted a Holiday Window Contest with merchants in downtown Silver City. Fourteen merchants have special window displays following the theme “A Storybook Christmas” and are competing for a community choice award, and in two more categories, largest and most creative. Voting for the community choice award has been on facebook or by visiting the participating merchants and voting online.

“We wanted to make downtown Silver City especially family friendly and festive, states Patrick Hoskins, Board President of Silver City MainStreet. The merchants got excited too, and have some amazing decorations in their windows. We encourage everyone to come and stroll downtown day or evening to see the lights and windows. It’s a fun activity to do with out-of-town guests.

Mary Alice Murphy has announced the publication of "God's Umbrella: Southwest New Mexico World War II Survivors." A compilation of 81 interviews done over the past 10 years of veterans and those training for or otherwise involved in World War II activities during the war years and just prior to and immediately after the war. 

Book readings and signings will take place at 1 p.m. until 2 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018, and at 10 a.m. until 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, at the Silver City Museum, 312 W. Broadway.

The interviews took place in Grant County mostly in the homes of those who agreed to talk about what they faced, with one each from Luna, Hidalgo and Catron counties.

In the words of these men and women who served in World War II or were otherwise impacted by the war, God's Umbrella recounts the tragic, humorous and other memorable parts of their service during wartime.
