The Silver City Rotary Club is hosting a fundraiser to benefit the High Desert Humane Society and the Silver City Rotary Foundation. The Zoom event will be held on Sunday, January 31, at 3 p.m.
Humane Society members and supporters and other non-Rotarians are invited to join in.
The Zoom event will be a “Fact or Fiction” game, in which some of the participants tell three brief stories, with only one story being true. Participants and others who are present choose the story they think is true, and make a bid on it. Bids can range from zero dollars on up. If the selection of a true story is correct, the Rotary Club will contribute $10 to the Humane Society in that person’s name. If the choice is incorrect, that person will contribute the amount of his or her bid to the local Silver City Rotary Foundation, which uses the money for scholarships and other charitable projects.

Farmers Insurance Seawolf Agency is proud to announce our 7th Annual Toy Giveaway!! It will be held December 19, 2020 from 10:00 AM to 3:00PM at the Silver City Woman’s Club Building located at 411 Silver Heights Boulevard in Silver City, NM and is open to all children in the Grant County area. Through generous donations from our Community we have acquired a great amount of toys and clothes for all the children to choose from. Clothes will be given away free as well as the toys but since we have received such a large amount of clothing there will be no limit on how much a child can have. All COVID-19 protocols will be in place. Toys will be sanitized according to CDC recommendations. A liability waiver will be provided, that must be filled out prior to admittance.
Please come prepared to stand in line for a bit as only 25 children will be allowed in the building at one time. We are hoping for a wonderful event. We are proud to announce that our very own Grant County Sherriff's Department will once again be with us bringing the DARE Lions for the children to take pictures with. For more information contact Ruth Seawolf at (575) 590-1324

The annual Wreaths Across America Remembrance Ceremony, originally scheduled for Saturday, December 19 at 10 a.m., has been cancelled. Due to National Cemetery Administration restrictions during the COVID pandemic, an alternative small, non-public wreath tribute to veterans and each branch of service will occur earlier in the week. The Fort Bayard National Cemetery Wreath Committee regrets this change but is grateful that a wreath will be placed at every gravesite again this year thanks to all the many sponsors. Each wreath will be placed respectfully by a small crew of committee members. The public is invited to drive through the cemetery any time on or after December 19.
