Armory building community cleanup

With the Boys & Girls Club gearing up soon for their summer programs, a community cleanup has been organized to tackle the backyard of the Armory Building, located on the corner of Armory and 9th Streets. Please plan to attend from 9 a.m. to noon, keeping in mind that the more volunteers the faster the workload can be achieved. You are asked to bring your own gardening tools such as trowels, shovels, outside brooms and gloves, as tumbleweeds and sand have overtaken the facilities yard area. A concentration to uncovering the walkways, basketball court and creating a corner garden will be the effort of this volunteer workday.

Future projects will be to create safe outdoor furniture seating for the club kids and raising money for a secure, shading structure.

AFD anthem tryouts Saturday

Vocal Tryouts for the Armed Forces Day National Anthem will be held Saturday, April 28 at 10:30 a.m. at the Armory Building, also known as the Boys and Girls Club facility. Please be prepared to sing the National Anthem a-cappella (without accompaniment) or with provided CD. An information sign-up sheet will be provided so the final candidate can be notified.

MC Motorheads tailgate dinner tomorrow

The Mineral County Motorheads (MCM) will be participating in a tailgating dinner on Friday, April 27 at 6 p.m. Bring out your rides, your personal dinner items, folding chairs and enjoy the fun while meeting under the awning at Patriot Park.

Meetings are now held as a noon lunch at the El Capitan, held on the second Saturday of every month. This is a no-dues club, with custom t-shirts available for ordering. The MCM plans to expand their summer cruises to include location drives throughout Mineral County and beyond.

Rides are not limited to classics, but include motorcycles, specialty vehicles such as off-roaders or ATV’s and other motorized drivers. The MCM’s motto is all about the ride, because they say, “You Know if You’re A Motorhead”.
