Sponsored by:

The 26th annual TuCARE Dinner and Auction take place Saturday March 14th at the Sonora Elks Lodge.

TuCare Executive Director Melinda Fleming, was Thursday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.

The special guest speaker is Dan Daggett, an environmentalist and a conservationist who will talk about “Rediscovering Our Importance to Nature”.

TuCare is involved in issues related to public and private lands usage which TuCARE feels is essential for a vital and functioning local, and state economy.
