Highlights from the Week of November 15, 2021
There's a lot going on in the City Different!
Disc Golf Coming to SWAN Park
The City recently approved the installation of an 18-hole disc golf course at SWAN Park in March. "We’ve been planning for disc golf at SWAN since 2011,” said Melissa McDonald, Interim Director of the Parks Division. “The collaborative work between the City, local disc golf volunteers, and DiscGolfPark will lead to a great passive recreation option for community members of all ages and abilities." The project gets underway with a volunteer cleanup on December 11. Find the details here.
515 Boosters for Seniors!
In coordination with NM Aging and Long Term Services, Department of Health, and the City of Santa Fe’s Senior Services Division, 515 COVID boosters and 17 flu shots were administered to seniors last Friday at the Mary Esther Gonzales Senior Center. It was a hugely successful event for the older population of Santa Fe. It could not have happened without all the hard work of our state partners and the Office of Emergency Management, the Police Department, Fire Department, Parks Department and Seniors Division.
