4 HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, MAY29, 2015 Lordsburg Elks host senior breakfast The Lordsburg Elks Lodge hosted an early morning breakfast for graduating seniors from Lordsburg High School on Monday, May 18, 2015.The youth/drug awareness event rewarded the youth for their years of hard work and featured guest speakers and prizes, along with a home cooked meal. Edgar Gomez, below right, representing the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Department, spoke to the graduates about the dangers of drinking and driving. In the days leading up to the breakfast, students partici- pated in a scavenger hunt, identifying photos from around the city of Lordsburg. Winning the scavenger hunt was Anjuli Kvamme. Kvamme is pictured at left with Lordsburg ElksYouth and Drug Awareness Chair- man Maria Sanchez receiving her prize, a new laptop. The contest was supported in part by the New Mexico Elks Association's Drug Awareness Program.

By 5 p.m the total stood at $66,907.80 from 571 donors, with hours of giving still available through the 11:59 p.m. dead- line for this day of local giving. Give and you Martha Egnal, represent- ing the Guadalupe Montessori School, said it was "a great day. It's come to- gether really well." The school was one of the top donation re- cipients, with more than $4,000 in donations by midday, "and we get to have music and yoga classes," she said, referring to the entertainment offerings which provided a festive atmosphere at Gough Park. Mary Hotvedt, representing Festival of the Written Word, ex- pressed the philosophical view seemingly shared by most of those involved in the event. "We do this because we love this community. It's a community that doesn't depend on things being delivered to us; we make it happen. We created these organi- zations to meet the needs of the community," she said. The Grant County Commu- nity Foundation had already re- ceived enough donations to pay for the wi-fi platform they pro- vided for the day in the park. At about 3 p.m Executive Director Barret Brewer said total donations were approaching $50,O00-- close to last year's $56,000-plus total--not counting matching funds of $9,000 pledged from Freeport MacMoRan to a number of organizations involved in edu- prospects. The statewide coalition of community foundations plans to hold the event again next year, Brewer said. The foundations in shall receive m Craig and Antonia having a good day. After adopt- ing out five dogs, the staff went back to shelter to bring even more dogs to the park to visit with potential new families. By 5 p.m the shel- ter had raised more than $1,500, and $240 had been collected for the Spay-Neuter Assistance Pro- gram. Antonia Smith laugh- ingly said she was banned from the animal Smith made a shelter -- ap- donation and adopted a new four-legged family member from the High Desert Humane Society during the Give Grandly event at Gough Park.The new pup, held by Antonia, doesn't have a name yet, but she will be joining Mousie, held by Craig, and two other canine friends at the Smith household. Photo by GWYNETH JONES/Si/ver City Daily Press other parts of the state are under- going some shifts and mergers, but she fully expects the day of giv- ing to survive and thrive. Heidi Ogas of the High Desert Humane Society was also parently by her husband Craig -- because she finds it hard to resist adopting new pets. But together at the park with their Chihuahua "Mousie," they found a compat- ible new canine friend to adopt. The fee for spaying the new pet "was totally worth it," she said.
