Registration is now open for this year's Local Food Brunch featuring Melissa Sevigny, author of Mythical River: Chasing the Mirage of New Water in the American Southwest. The brunch will take place at The Commons (The Volunteer Center), and provides a wonderful opportunity to taste local foods that you never thought to eat, engage in imaginative and thoughtful exploration of what rivers mean to us, and support the conservation of the Gila River.

The Wild Resilience Collective, a newly formed Grant County group dedicated to "re-wilding agriculture as a cooperative business," will prepare a delicious, home-cooked meal made with locally-produced and foraged foods. Author Sevigny will discuss the historic quest for navigable rivers in the American West, early explorers' obstinate, optimistic belief in nonexistent rivers, and the unending search for "new" waters.

Please join us for Green Drinks this Thursday, September 6, starting at 5:30pm in the backroom of Little Toad Creek Brewery & Distillery, 200 N. Bullard Street.

Our guest speaker will be Nathan Newcomer, Grass Roots Organizer for New Mexico Wild, who will provide a presentation on the effort for the Gila River "Wild and Scenic Designation".

The purpose of the H.E.L.P. Program is to lend hospital equipment to those in need. It is sponsored and supported by Silver City Masons (Freemasons), and private donations.

The H.E.L.P. program loans out handicap equipment of all sorts, from canes, crutches and walkers to hospital beds, shower chairs and wheel chairs, all FREE of charge.  It does not matter what your financial situation may be or where you live, all we ask is that you return the equipment when there is no longer a need so that it may be refurbished and loaned out again.

Silver City Mayor Ken Ladner would like to invite your input, ideas and inspirations toward making our town even better.

This month's "Monday Meeting With The Mayor" will be in the Main Lobby of the Western New Mexico Library on Monday, September 10, 2018, from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

All are invited to stop by and share your insights and ideas with Mayor Ladner.

We have received complaints about large images blocking parts of other articles. If you encounter this problem, click on the title of the article you want to read and it will take you to that article's page, which shows only that article without any intruders. It's a software problem, not easily fixable, other than showing fewer articles per summary page.
