All About Us...
We are a grass roots group that has state designation through New Mexico MainStreet as the first Arts and Cultural Compound. We are proud that our small community qualified worthy of designation in such a focused and well intentioned national program. We focus on community projects that include creative economy, community activities from events to classes, and overall "what is good for Our Mora."
It is important to be good stewards of the resources provided to us. Most of our projects are made possible through community donation. Our community has donated almost $50,000 worth of volunteer hours in 2016. In 2017 a conservative estimate at 2,100 volunteer hours. It is note worthy that Mora's accomplishment is without paid staff. We may not be rich financial assets, but, we are rich in commitment to our community, and making a new way to keep our beloved valley in a valued state while addressing a need to make a sustainable life.
Please use the contact form if you have questions, or are interested in volunteering at an event or to be on one of our committees: Youth Activities, Mora Beautification, Fall Festival. We will have more projects in the future. Right now our focus is on doing a few things well, encouraging our community that good things can happen in little steps.
