As the end of summer gets near, the Chihauhuan Desert Fiesta is a great way to bring in the fall and prepare for autumn outings with “Celebration of Our Mountains”.  I have attached the exhibitors information and event flyer to distribute to anyone you think may be interested. 

As always I look forward to seeing you there.
