A BIG Thank you to all who came out and made the Aldo Leopold Kids Fishing Derby a huge success. Participants were not only able to catch fish but also learned about protecting endangered species, fly-tying, fly-fish casting and archery. There were a total of 150 participants and prizes were given out to those who caught the most fish. The event is expected to grow as additional events will be added in the future.

The City of Deming will be having “Movie Night” at Tree’s Lake on Friday, June 9th. They will be showing “The Good Dinosaur” and the movie will start at 8:00p.m. This is a free, family-friendly event for all to enjoy! For more information contact the city at 575-546-8848.
