i I 2 HtDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY OCTOBER 7 2011 Freedom in the air Courtesy photo Ms. Arredondo's third graders at Southside Elementary School celebrated Constitution Day recently with a send-off of red, white, and blue balloons. Each of the students wrote the Pledge of Allegiance on an index card and attached it to the balloon. As the balloons ascended into the air, the students yelled "Freedom!" On the opposite side of the index card was a message asking the person(s) who found it to respond to the school letting the students know when and where they found the balloon(s). Last year, the class received a letter from a lady just outside Silver City who found a bouquet of balloons in her garden! The class is anxiously awaiting a response. Elks Hide Continued from Page 1 chairs to protect their hands dur- ing movement Anyone who donates a hide Will be entered into a raffle to win a Marlin Model X7C 30-06 rifle. The drive is part of a nation- wide le~ather program that the Elks have been operating since 1948. Thi: Week at FUMC This Sunday at First United Methodist Church. Pastor Rich- ard Dorsey's sermon is titled. "'Weddings and Drafts. Inc. The scripture is from Matthew 22:1- 14 where the invitation is open to all to come to the weddirtg feast. How does this apply to our lives and our inwtation to oth- ers? Sunday Service begins at 10 AM. The doors of our church are open to all. ram benefiting veterans The motto of the Elks Na- tional Veterans Service Commis- sion is "So Long As There Are Veterans. the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks Will Never Forget Them." Once donated, volunteers clean, salt, fold and stack the hides. They are then transported to tanneries for processing. After cleaning and tanning, the leather ts made available in craft kits to veterans to make wallets, cloth- ing, belts and moccasins for per- sonal use or to enter in arts and crafts shows. The program is to- tally funded by the Elks at no cost to veterans or the govemmem In fact, "Elks Leather" h~is become a national by-word among veteran patients everywhere. Preparation of the Hide Before being sen! to the Tan- ner for processing, each hide must be properly prepared to ensure it arrives fresh and bacteria-free. All donated hides must be "salted." This is very 1.rnportant because it leaches out unwanted liquids, set the hair tight and kills most bac- teria that is on the hide. Proper preparation of the hide is key to the eventual tanning process. Salting is the very first thing you should do after the animal has been skinned. As long as the skin is in its raw state, unsalted, it is collecting bacteria. Areas not salted will allow bacteria to de- velop and spread throughout the hide. Once donated, volunteers clean, salt (if not already salted), fold and stack the hides. They are then transported to tanneries for processing. For more information on how to salt a hide for donation. or for more information about the program, contact President Kelly Gomez at 575-590-4657. Bro- chures on how to salt the hides are available at the Lordsburg Elks Lodge and at the Hidalgo County Herald.

I believe that all of'Lordsburg should come to Scripture Baptist Church on every Sunday, Wednesday, and any other time the door is open. First of all, there are a lot of great stories in the Bible. There is the Good Samaritan. The Good Shepherd. Moses and the Israel- ltes. Elijah. Elisha. and many others. Did you know Lot's wife turned into a pillar of salt? Secondly, you can learn a lot of things to apply to your life. You can learn to have courage and faith. You can also learn how to be kind and loving and trust in God. Thirdly, you can get saved and have fellowship. Did you know that you can know for sure that you are going to Heaven in- stead of going to Hell and burn- ing for eternity? Then you can have fellowship with God and believers. So come to Scripture Baptist Church to learn and grow spiritu- ally!
