Items of interest:

Detonation of these items will be continuous throughout each day beginning around 1 hour after sunrise and ending about 1 hour before sunset. Without any unforeseen delays (such as weather), all operations should be completed by March 13; this may include conducting operations during the weekend of March 7 and 8.
  • What can you do with your empty printer and copier ink cartridges, and the cell phones you're no longer using? Put them in a collection box for the Rotary Club of Socorro. This project is partly community service, to keep the cartridges and phones out of the landfill, and partly an effort to raise funds for Rotary's local, national, and international projects. You will find collection boxes on campus in the Fidel Center, Human Resources, NRAO, MRO, and the Bureau of Geology. You will also see them at various locations around Socorro. Rotary thanks you for your help!
