For the past six years, I have heard this statement so many times it starts to make my ears bleed. Well, maybe my ears don’t bleed, but I hear this phrase way too often. So, let’s take the upcoming Labor Day Weekend… a nice three-day holiday weekend for many people on August 30 and 31, and September 1 and 2.

Friday – August 30
• Carnitas, Musica Y Mas at Gough Park in Silver City from at 5:00 pm to 11:00 pm
Saturday - August 31
• Grant County Rolling Stones Gem and Mineral Show at the Grant County Business and Conference Center

And these events are just in Silver City. I’m certain there are other events in the surrounding towns and areas during this Labor Day Weekend.

If going to events isn’t your idea of fun, then go visit the Gila Cliff Dwellings. Go for a walk on the Catwalk at Glenwood. Visit one of the many ghost towns in the area. Try your luck fishing at Bill Evans Lake or Lake Roberts. Hike into the wilderness and find a great honey hole for trout. Take a hike on any of the numerous hiking trails in the area. Ride a bike on a trail or on a road… just get out in the fresh air and enjoy a day of pedaling. Play a round of golf at the University Course at Scott Park in Silver City. Visit historic Fort Bayard for a walking tour. Soak in hot springs located here in Grant County. See… there really are many things you can do in Grant County.

We welcome several new members to the Chamber of Commerce.
