The Silver City Advisory Board meets 7 p.m. at the firehouse office on High Street. Meetings are the first Tuesday of each month.

Case for Change discussion

The Case for Change Dinner Discussion will be March 15 at 6:30 p.m. Strategies generated from previous discussions are the new town barter board and support for new community classes and clubs. Local youth are now able to barter community service for musical instruments and lessons.

In the spirit of supporting people in helping themselves, about 10 Silver City residents will be attending a three-day conference to learn more about how to efficiently impact the political system.
