The Catron County Historical Society was founded in January
2008 and is an organization whose mission is to preserve, present,
educate, and inform . . . by increasing the knowledge of Catron
County history through outings, programs, oral history interviews,
and a compilation of books pertaining to Catron County. The
CCHS has recently become a non-profit corporation, and is in
the process of locating a museum and visitors center, continuing
with an oral history library, book library, and construction
of a website. The future of the CCHS is in the members and
volunteers who help to preserve the history of Catron County … so

There is that nip of fall in the air . . . very welcome after
the hot summer. The tomatoes are not as forthcoming because
of the cooler nights. But, there are trade-offs in everything.
The Glenwood School Parent-Teacher Organization is planning
their annual Halloween Carnival Extravaganza! This years' event
will be held at the Los Olmos Guest Ranch in Glenwood on Saturday
night, October 22. Fun will include a Haunted Trail, loads
of game booths, a Cake Walk, and whatever fun thing they think
up. Everyone is encouraged to come out and support this evening
of safe fun for our children. All proceeds will benefit the
children through PTO activities.
Starting in November, Lance Huff will be offering cooking
classes at the Glenwood Community Center. Lance has cooked
at several local restaurants including Diane's, Los Arcos and
the Gila Cafe and was featured in the March edition of New
Mexico Magazine. Occasionally he fills in for Lori Faust at
the Alma Grill.
Lance's goal is to share his cooking skills to the benefit
of all our kitchens. Classes will cover party planning, holiday
foods, how to create an atmosphere with delicious food and
just plain good cooking. The first class will be November 18
at 6:00 pm.
This class will be organizational in nature with future classes
based on the ideas of the students. Call Lance if interested
. . . 539-2677. Cost for the first class is $15.
