As part of the Silver City annual Dia de los Muertos days of celebration and remembrance, marigolds are a tradition for decorations of ofrendas and other activities envolving this very special time. Last year advance planning was done for this year’s event with a marigold seed exchange. Those seeds were then planted by many and are now being harvested for the marigold collection that is being held a Javalina’s Coffee House on Friday, October 25 from noon till 6 p.m. Marigolds brought in for donation are then available to be used on ofrendas being placed around town. What a kind and generous effort being done by many in support of the Silver City Dia de los Muertos as families pay tribute to their loved ones gone before! The marigolds are also going to be made available for decorations for floats for the big parade on October 27. So if you were part of the marigold seed exchange remember to harvest your marigolds and bring them to the collection on October 25th.
And yes, if you have marigolds that were not part of the seed exchange, “renegade” marigolds will also be welcomed!
Planning is once again well underway for Saturday, December 14, 2019, when members of the Grant County community will gather to honor veterans during the Christmas holiday season as part of the annual Wreaths Across America Day. The ceremony will be held at Fort Bayard National Cemetery at 10:00 a.m.The mission of Wreaths Across America, a 501©3 organization, is to REMEMBER, HONOR, and TEACH. Remember the fallen, Honor those who serve including their families who sacrifice, and Teach our children the cost of the freedoms we enjoy each day.
