Catron Courier - - News -

by Carol Jean Auf­frey

It's been an ex­cit­ing year for the DPCC and we want to thank each and ev­ery per­son who has made a con­tri­bu­tion to the re­vi­tal­iza­tion of the DPCC. Yet again many of you have stepped up to help us with our cur­rent raf­fle project.

Our “Kick Off” for the three bags of Gift Cer­tifi­cates started April 28. Tick­ets can be pur­chased un­til Satur­day at the County Fair in Au­gust. There are three gift bags each con­tain­ing three gift cer­tifi­cates. Bag A con­tains a gift cer­tifi­cate for a mas­sage, a $20 gift cer­tifi­cate for the Cactus Com­pany and a cer­tifi­cate to Car­men’s Restau­rant in Re­serve. Bag B con­tains a cer­tifi­cate for Black Gold, Lit­tle Adobe and a mas­sage. Bag C in­cludes a cer­tifi­cate for a free pie from the Pie-O-Neer, shop­ping at Jake's Store, and a free oil change cer­tifi­cate from Andy’s Garage in Que­mado. Tick­ets can be pur­chased for $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00 at the Pie-O -Neer or by con­tact­ing Ray Messier, Carol Auf­frey, Kathy Garceau or Lee Sonne. Thanks to all our mer­chants for sup­port­ing this raf­fle which will al­low the DPCC to con­tinue to make a “Pos­i­tive Pres­ence” in our com­mu­nity. We also want to thank the fam­ily of Joyce Small­wood for do­nat­ing one of her paint­ings to be raf­fled off sep­a­rately. A big thank you to all of you out there who have sup­ported us by help­ing pick up trash on the high­way, and who I know will be buy­ing raf­fle tick­ets.

At the monthly meet­ing of the Ca­tron County Vets, the DPCC was rec­og­nized by the United States Ma­rine Corps Re­serve for their con­tri­bu­tion to the “Toys For Tots” pro­gram. Al Sanchez, Commander, pre­sented Carol Jean Auf­frey, Vice Chair of the DPCC with a cer­tifi­cate of ap­pre­ci­a­tion.

Go­ing for­ward the DPCC will be ad­vo­cat­ing for bi­par­ti­san voter reg­is­tra­tion and par­tic­i­pa­tion in the up­com­ing elec­tions. We will also be hold­ing an­other “Adopt a High­way” clean up on High­way 12 Au­gust 4, de­tails to be an­nounced. ●●●
