People from as far away as Alaska were in Silver City Sunday to celebrate Día de los Muertos and take the opportunity to shop “Love Local” downtown. Market Street from Bullard to Texas, was the scene of the festivities, with booths, face painting, food, music and fun. Folks and their four-footed friends meandered along Market and later in the afternoon lined Bullard Street waiting for the parade.

Over thirty businesses participated in the “Love Local” event, which was held in conjunction with Silver City’s Día de los Muertos Celebration. Sponsored by Silver City MainStreet, these local businesses offered deals, discounts and special drawings to encourage both local residents and visitors to enjoy our unique downtown.

"We are doing the purse auction this year, but our sister chapter in Silver City, Chapter AG, is helping us.

[Editor's Note: This is the final part of a two-part series of articles on the Gila Regional Medical Center Board of Trustees monthly meeting on Oct. 26, 2018.]

By Mary Alice Murphy

After an executive session, part 1, lasting about an hour or so, the Gila Regional Medical Center Board of Trustees members came back into session to hear the reports and updates.

The first report came from Jennifer Yost, Auxiliary president. "The number of meals we provide at the Cancer Center is up, so there are more patients being seen. Our membership is about the same, and we always can use more volunteers. We will participate in the Halloween Trunk or Treat. We hope to have a jewelry sale in November and a bake sale in December. We have an online fundraiser with Rada cutlery. The auxiliary gets 30 percent to 40 percent back from your purchase of knives and utensils. The gift shop is ready for Christmas."
