Christmas in Naco

For the last 10 years or so the Bisbee Rotary Club has hosted “Christmas in Naco.” Naco is actually two sister cities on the Arizona and the state of Sonora, Mexico border just south of Bisbee, Arizona. At 7 am this Christmas morning a number of Bisbee Rotary members and other community/area volunteers met at the Bisbee Bug to load some 30 odd vehicles with food bags, new blankets, coats, shoes and clothes for our less fortunate neighbors in Naco, Sonora, Mexico. We then formed a convoy to a semi-secure area immediately north of the Mexican border where, aided by the US Border Patrol and local authorities from Naco, we parked our vehicles and waited for the first wave of needy Mexican citizens. The wife of the Mayor of Naco, Sonora was instrumental in making sure that the neediest families were allowed to come through first. My family and I have only been here for two Christmas seasons but we have been blessed to be a part of “Christmas in Naco” for both seasons.
