Children of Palomas fund raiser to be held Saturday in S rn,er City Submitted by VICTORIA TESTERIPalomas Outreach co- ordinator The Brandon Perrault and the Rhythm Mystic bands will play a benefit concert dance at the S/Ice Theater in downtown Silver City to fund daily sum- mer meals for the children of Palomas.

This current program ends July 16 'h, and all funds raised by the Brandon Perrault and Rhythm Mystic concert dance benefit will go to fund daily meals for as many chil- dren as possible from July 19 'h to August 20 th- Please attend. You will make a happy difference in a child's otherwise miserable summer• Admission is any cash or check donation. All proceeds go to food for the children. Non-perishable foods loved by children are also gratefully ac- cepted. See our wish list below. at present I also instruct Survival Spanish to the cadets at Western New Mexico University.
