Summer Daze! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Sponsored this week by La Cantina Sports Bar @ Sonoran Sky

Here in Rocky Point, we are rounding out July and heading straight for the sun, sweat, and cerveza of August.  There’s plenty out there to stay hot – and cool – and “heading back to school” is creeping back into the picture. It’s a great time to help out in the community as well by donating school supplies for kids headed back shortly! So, gather up those backpacks, pencils, and notebooks – and let’s run down the weekend!

July 26th  8 p.m.  Photo Exhibit @ Municipal Art Gallery (GAM) in Old Port.  Display of work done by student participants in photo workshop led by Annie Cota

July 28th – An evening for shell artist Julio Carlos Meza & family @ MTZ Cantina  4 p.m – 8 p.m.  Fundraiser. Many in town are familiar with the mesmerizing works of renowned shell-artist Julio Meza. This past Spring his son Julio Carlos (in his late 30s) suffered a stroke, so the community is coming together to help defray some of the medical costs and ongoing care. Tickets are 250 pesos – which includes 3 drink tickets, bacanora tasting, plus food from several local restaurants.  Silent Auction items as well, including magnificent shell art of Julio Meza!  Come out for an evening of FUNdraising!  More information, please contact Beverly, please RSVP:
