Today marks the 3 month mark until the 18th Rocky Point Rally – yes, the Greatest Motorcycle Fiesta Just South of the Border. 3 months to go. Rally goers and spectators are encouraged to register, as proceeds from the voluntary registration go right back into the community via 7 different charity organizations – plus you can register starting now at 18th Annual Rocky Point Rally Speaking of giving back, schools are almost once again in session and there’s plenty of ways you can help support education in town….including a Bacanora tasting this week – make that mañana! Let’s run down the weekend and take a look at what’s coming up!
There’s still time before school starts! Planning a trip to Rocky Point and wanting to give back to the community? Here are some ideas: AIM School Supply drive (drop off spots at Satisfied Frog, Hacienda del Sol furniture store, Las Conchas office) or how about new/lightly used school items for the Club Ecologico school packets (please contact firstname.lastname@example.org) GRACIAS!
