This discussion will be moderated by Cindy Provencio, Miller Library Program Manager of Operations and Special Events, whose Masters thesis is titled "Racial Segregation and Discrimination in Grant Co NM: A comprehensive examination through the lens of intersectional assemblage theory." Panelists will include local Hispanics who encountered racial discrimination and segregation. Much of the institutional segregation in schools and housing in Grant County officially ended over the course of the 1950s, but the effects have lasted. This conversation will be an opportunity to learn, share, and reflect on how far the community has come and what we can all do moving forward to heal and connect with each other.

Silver City, NM (September 13, 2017) – As of September 29, the HMS Mimbres Valley Clinic will be open every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 7:00am to 6:00pm (closed between 12:00noon and 1:00pm).

This change reflects an increase in open hours for the community that HMS serves. Please call (575) 536- 3990 today to learn more about the new clinic hours or to schedule your family’s appointment at the HMS Mimbres Valley Clinic.

Why should people attend Chamber of Commerce events?

If you are business person, these events are a good networking opportunity. Bring your business cards, wear a shirt with your company logo on it, or maybe wear a name badge that has the company name and your name on it. You see, the whole idea is to meet more people, tell them what you do… and possibly create a new customer base from these events. If you are simply a member of the community, these events are a great way to learn about the services of the new business or meet the staff of the business. Sometimes they are snacks and giveaway prizes. But the main reason it is good to attend is to learn how this new business can be useful to meeting your needs.
