Mark your calendars! SWEC’s annual gala fundraiser—On the River, For the River—is only a month away on Saturday, October 23, 5-10:30 pm. This year’s event promises to be another great party under the stars at the beautiful Mesilla Valley Bosque State Park, featuring great food and beverages, music, tours of the park, a silent auction, and of course, great company!

It’s a great way to show your business’ green credentials to people who care. Call (575) 522-5552 for details.

Silent Auction items wanted

Do you have a business, a hobby, or unique skill? We are still accepting donations of products and services valued at $40 and up for the silent auction. All donations are appreciated, including the offbeat and unique. Do you have a painting that doesn’t fit in your house? Can you cook a gourmet meal for six people? Know how to fix computers? Teach guitar? Own a vacation cabin in the mountains? These are just some of many possible silent auction items. Call (575) 522-5552 to learn more or make a donation.
