The public is invited to a ribbon cutting this Friday, December 14 at 11 a.m. for the grand opening of The Gila Regional Foot & Ankle Clinic, Dr. Gregory Iwaasa, DPM, 1280 E. 32nd Street, La Montana Plaza (next to Gila Surgical Services) in Silver City, NM

Thursday January 24 Grant County Community Concert Association will host Vocal Trash, an urban-themed Broadway style production that performs on custom instruments made from recycled materials. 

In keeping with Vocal Trash’s message of peace, love, recycling, and anti-bullying, GCCCA is partnering with the Silver City Public Library’s kids programs, Little Artist Club and WildWorks, to decorate the lobby of WNMU’s Fine Arts Theater with creations made of recycled material.  During the school district’s winter break and into early January kids participating in the library’s programs will use a variety of materials to make sculptures and art decorations.  The child or team in each program that makes the most creative art piece will receive complementary tickets to the evening concert so they can bring their parents. 

 The overall idea is to imagine a world where the items we love can live forever through recycling and up-cycling.

 For information on participating in the library’s programs call Donna or Chris at 575-538-3672.

This year, in addition to all of the new downtown lights and decorations, Silver City MainStreet hosted a Holiday Window Contest with merchants in downtown Silver City. Fourteen merchants have special window displays following the theme “A Storybook Christmas” and are competing for a community choice award, and in two more categories, largest and most creative. Voting for the community choice award has been on facebook or by visiting the participating merchants and voting online.

“We wanted to make downtown Silver City especially family friendly and festive, states Patrick Hoskins, Board President of Silver City MainStreet. The merchants got excited too, and have some amazing decorations in their windows. We encourage everyone to come and stroll downtown day or evening to see the lights and windows. It’s a fun activity to do with out-of-town guests.
