BIGGEST JACKPOTS IS TOWN!
The public is invited to attend a free field trip sponsored by the Audubon Society on July 23 to see the birds that use the Deming Waste Water Treatment Plant as habitat. We will meet at 8:00 a.m. at the gate to the plant, which is on J St. SE, 1.9 miles east of Country Club Road.
In the arid Southwest, any available source of water is important for birds. The Deming ponds contain clean treated water that can be a good place to see species such as American Avocets and Black-necked Stilts. The water treatment plant is one of the top five birding spots in Luna County.
This trip is a part of the nationwide Latino Conservation Week whose goal is to encourage the Latino community to get outdoors, enjoy healthy adventures with family and friends, and to learn more about protecting our natural resources. While Latino community members are encouraged to attend, the field trip is open to the public.
Audubon will provide binoculars and spotting scopes to view the birds up close and local experts will be present to help with identification. Information will be given in both English and Spanish.
This trip is geared for anyone interested in the outdoors. You don’t need to be a bird watcher to enjoy this excursion that will last for about an hour and a half.
Audubon promotes conservation actions that will protect and restore valuable rivers, wetlands, and forests across the West such as the Gila River, New Mexico’s last free-flowing river. As part of this field trip we will discuss the valuable role that wastewater can play in conservation of our water resources.
This event is free and open to the public.

The First United Methodist Church Invites Families to Egypt: Joseph’s Journey From Prison to Palace
A Vacation Bible School family event called Egypt will be hosted at the First United Methodist Church from Monday, June 20, 2016 to Friday, June 24, 2016. Children ages 3 (if potty trained) through 12 years old step back in time at Egypt, exploring the life of Joseph. Kids participate in a memorable Bible-times marketplace, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, and visit Joseph in prison and then in his palace home. Plus, everyone learns to look for evidence of God all around them through something called God Sightings. Each day concludes at Celebration—a time of upbeat worship that gets everyone involved.
Egypt VBS will run from 4:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. each day. Pastor Ernie Vineyard will also host an adult bible study for parents of any children who wish to attend at the same time as VBS. Dinner will be provided for all participants. For more information, call (575) 546-2791.
Register on-line at www.fumcdeming.org or in person at the First United Methodist Church, 1020 S. Granite Street, Deming, New Mexico.
