Tickets for the Agatha Christie mystery "A Murder Is Announced," adapted by Leslie Darbon, are now on sale at Vickie's Eatery, 315 N. Texas, and at Morning Star, 809 N. Bullard, according to Liz Mikols, the play's producer for the Silver City Community Theatre.

"We are excited for many reasons," says Mikols. "Our mystery will be the first play on the stage that we've created in the J.C. Penney or Workshop of Carneros building in the 400 block of Bullard. The audiences will be sitting in our comfortable new chairs, and they'll be held in suspense by our first class cast."

This February 17, 2018, is Territorial Charter Day and Silver City MainStreet is initiating a downtown promotion called Love Local. Downtown merchants are offering great deals, drawings, and discounts because they love our local community. Silver City MainStreet loves our local businesses.

Local businesses are owned by people who live in our community, are less likely to leave, and are more invested in our community's future. If you spend $100 at a local business, roughly $68 stays in our local economy. If you spend the same are a large business, only $43 stays in our local economy. Additionally, small businesses donate 250% more than larger businesses to non-profits and community causes.

This February 17, 2018, is Territorial Charter Day and Silver City MainStreet will participate in the celebration with a fun run through downtown Silver City for adults at 9 am and will also host children's fun runs in the Big Ditch Park at 11 am. The fun runs will showcase our downtown district and prizes will be awarded to all children who participate in this outdoor activity.

Silver City MainStreet is collaborating with WNMU and Coach Macario Campos with sponsorship from the Town of Silver City on the adult and children's fun runs. The Urban Challenge fun run will wind through the historic district and will start under the downtown archway and end at the Market Street walking bridge. Runners aged 14 years and older will receive a t-shirt and the entry fee is three cans of food that will be donated to the Grant County Community Food Pantry. The free children's fun runs will take place in the Big Ditch Park at the end of 6th Street. There will be fun obstacle and dash runs for children grouped by age.
