  • A large group of friends and relatives gathered at the home of Jesse Romero in Chacon to help her celebrate her 92nd birthday last Saturday. Her children set-up a feast for all to enjoy as they congratulated Romero. Many different people played music and sang “Las Mañanitas” and “Happy Birthday.” The day was filled with good music, as the people played guitars and sang the old Spanish songs. There was lots of food for the guests to enjoy.

  • It is a beautiful July afternoon here in our mountains. The opportunity to open my office door wide, and soak in the sights and smells of a wind-free, cool July afternoon are becoming more rare every year, weatherwise, it seems.

  • Last week a group of 27 adults and youth from Texas spent the week at the Mora Presbyterian Church repairing, painting, yard work and help in the Community Garden. They also held a three - day Vacation Bible School for local children and youth who participated in a few community service projects, as well as Bible study, which consisted of making table and wall decorations for Mora’s Senior Center and inspirational cards for the Mora Church’s food bank. The Bible School ended with a program and dinner for all families involved.

  • COMMUNITY CALENDAR

  • Our dense, conifer-rich forest dodged a bullet over our fourth of July weekend. The rains came, but the always- threatening lightening did not. That translates into no fires here so far, thankfully.

    Obviously, there is a little kid still in all of us, and that was very evident, right down the road from this ranch on the 4th.

    Our Pendaries neighbors hosted a kite flying event, in the open space behind the new John Harrington Memorial Garden.
