Kathy and Timothy Dick, singers and songwriters known as Auld Lang Syne will be performing November 4 at noon at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Silver City, 3845 N. Swan Street. The musicians write and sing heartfelt and passionate songs celebrating nature and also address the complexities created when human nature intersects with Mother Nature. 

The duo, based out of Rochester, New York are traveling with their family and will make a stop in Silver City. With Timothy on acoustic guitar and Kathy on accordion, the Rochester City Newspaper says “As multi-instrumentalists, the Dicks primarily worked as a duo to record “The Last of the Honeybees,” but achieved the same richness of sound of a larger band.”

The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd will hold its 116th Annual Bazaar on Saturday, November 10, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, November 11 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the church Parish Hall on the corner of Texas and Arizona Streets. The Garage Sale part of the Bazaar, open on Saturday only, is held in the garage next door to the church and will begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday.

Church of the Good Shepherd’s Bazaar has run every year since 1904 and, sporadically, even earlier than that. In an article found in the Silver City Enterprise, dated November 26, 1886: “The Ladies Working Guild of the Episcopal Church will give a fair on Tuesday evening, December 21, 1886.”

Local residents are invited to downtown Silver City on Sunday, October 28, 2018, to enjoy the downtown Love Local Celebration. Merchants are offering great deals, drawings, and discounts because they love our local community. The promotion is sponsored by Silver City MainStreet to encourage more local shopping.

Patrick Hoskins, Board President of Silver City MainStreet states, “We have thirty-three businesses that are open every Sunday in downtown Silver City. A number of these will be offering special deals and discounts on Sunday, October 28, 2018. It’s a great day to come downtown and shop the businesses that are open and enjoy the Dia de los Muertos celebration and activities. The Stories from Our Streets walking tour is a fun family activity and booklets can be picked up at the Murray Ryan Visitor Center or many of the downtown merchants.”
