The City of Las Cruces will create a teen advisory board in the next few months to help decide what activities the city should offer local teens.

City Parks and Recreation Department Youth Services Administrator Robert Nunez said the board will be comprised of 16 students in grades seven through 12 from across the city.

The city will work with community partners such as Las Cruces Public Schools, local chambers and faith-based organizations to create and enhance recreational, academic, mentoring, employment and other city programs for teens and to provide transportation and meals.

If you find yourself asking “What is no shave November for?” or “What does no shave November support?”

The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow. Donate the money you typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle.

One can participate by growing a beard, cultivating a mustache, letting those legs go natural, and skipping that waxing appointment. Put down your razor for an entire month until December 1st rolls around. If you’re not ready to get hairy, you can support someone who is.
