Mimbres Messenger

Mimbres Community Monthly Paper

The Mimbres Messenger always includes a front-page article showcasing a Mimbres resident, event, or issue as well as Forest Service news, articles by our very own “Bug-man,” Roundup Lodge notes, a Community and County calendar page, Senior Center menu and activities and articles by guest authors. One can also find news about our local San Lorenzo Elementary School as well as upcoming and ongoing activities, and kids articles by Marilyn Markel.  The Messenger is produced by an all-volunteer staff that compose, edit, copy, and deliver the publication—printed circulation is about 650, and every issue, going back to 2015, is available online on this page. The Messenger is supported by revenue from ads placed by local businesses.


Professionals, amateurs, or if you just have one great photo you would like to share

It is once again time to submit your photos for the Harvest Festival Calendar. OK, I know there isn’t going to be a Harvest Festival this year, but there is going to be a Calendar. We need your submissions, and they need to be in no later than August 15th (absolute deadline). Delivery of packages has been very slow, and we want to make sure the calendars are available to be purchased at the October 3rd special Farmers’ Market.

All photos MUST be at least 300 dpi or for an 8x10 photo, 2,400 by 3,000 pixels for them to pass the printing company’s criteria.

Please email your submissions to  by August 15th

As always, there is no compensation, just the pleasure of seeing your pictures in print and sharing them with others, and knowing that all profits from the sales of the calendars go to the MVHAL programs. Photos are selected on quality and how well they represent the Mimbres Valley.
