The meat will be donated to the Gila Valley Mobile Food Pantry to help feed the local community. HMS is a proud supporter of the Cliff-Gila Grant County Fair.

Steidl is the primary care provider at the HMS Cliff-Gila Community Health Center.  HMS and Steidl have been buyers together at the livestock sale for more than 10 years. "We do this both to support Cliff-Gila individuals and families in need and to support community youth members that participate in the County FFA and 4-H programs. It's a way of giving back to the community that supports HMS and the HMS Cliff-Gila Community Health Center," said Steidl.

“As we have for many years, HMS appreciates the chance to assist the Gila Valley Mobile Food Pantry and those it serves with this donation,” added Dan Otero, HMS Chief Executive Officer. According to their Facebook page, the Gila Valley Mobile Food Pantry is an all volunteer community organization distributing over 7,500 pounds of food to 100 families monthly, and all contributions to their organization go to the purchase of food.

The HMS Cliff-Gila Community Health Center is located at 411 Highway 211 in Gila. Please call (575) 535-4384 today to learn more about family medicine services offered to the community or how to schedule your next appointment at the HMS Cliff-Gila Clinic.

Editor's Note

Mary Alice tried out a different format for reporting the lengthy County Commission preliminary budget hearing. Instead of traditional narrative sentences, to do it more quickly and efficiently, she put the name of each speaker before a paraphrased version of their comments. Questions were not necessarily asked by the speaker, but they were answered by the one replying. Please let editor@grantcountybeat.com know if you love, hate or are indifferent about the format. It may lead to how some reports are written henceforth in order to get them out in a more timely manner.

Mary Alice is back, but on slow-mo, trying to catch up with all that didn't get done before she had to leave. And doing everything that happened after she got back! Working on it
