In partnership with WNMU, the Silver City Gospel Mission is encouraging caring students and faculty from Western to come down for a day of service to their community every Saturday from 11 am – 2 pm.
Led by WNMU Director of Communications Abraham Villarreal, students will prepare and serve a meal for the needy, work in the Mission vegetable gardens or perform other needed tasks.
Villarreal said that helping to ensure healthy, vibrant and prospering communities is good for our students and our neighbors. We view social responsibility as more than a nice sounding word—we consider it part of Western’s culture.
And join us this Saturday night for WNMU’s ‘Bash On Broadway’!
Offering socialization for both new and returning students, the event signifies the exciting arrival of the fall semester with music, games and dancing in historic downtown Silver City.
WNMU President Joseph Shepard will deliver a State of the University Address at 5:30 p.m. inside Little Toad Creek, located on the corner of Broadway and Bullard Streets. After updating the community with an account of current and future happenings, Bullard Street will be closed between Broadway Street and Yankie Street from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m where the Mission will have an information booth.
Radio La Chusma, a Latin-Reggae band out of El Paso, will provide live music.
