Interspecies Communication and the Connection of All Living Beings

Sunday, August 6 at 10 am, 3845 North Swan Street. “Kinship with All Life” Anita Williams will be presenting information about interspecies communication as presented in the book "Kinship with All Life" by J. Allen Boone. Anita moved to Silver City about two and a half years ago from Anchorage, Alaska after retiring from a career as a geologist. She says she has been fortunate to be able to share her life with numerous cat and dog companions. She learned of the book during a pet/human communication class and has read and reread it many times, getting more and different insights each time. Although the book is primarily about animals, including even insects, it is even more about the connections of all beings, developing awareness of those connections and opening hearts and minds. There will be coffee and conversation after the service and visitors are welcome.

Please join us for Green Drinks on Thursday, August 3, starting at 5:30 p.m. in the backroom of Little Toad Creek Brewery & Distillery, 200 N. Bullard Street.

We will have two speakers. Grant County Assessor, Raul Turrieta, will give an update on property valuations within Grant County, and talk about initiatives having to do with the County Assessors office.

Town of Silver City Mayor, Ken Ladner, will provide an overview on "State of the Town" and talk about Town projects in which he is particularly interested.

Come hungry and you can order and purchase the food and drinks of your choice off the entire menu. Bring your friends, family and associates!
