Fresh from the oops desk:
Senior Center Grand Opening was prematurely announced. Originally set for May 3, it has been rescheduled for June 25 to accommodate dignitaries from Santa Fe and all that jazz. Election year ya know even there won't be babies to kiss at this venue.
I also missed announcing the May Gymkhana Rodeo (thinking it a week later than it actually was). Another in June plus a NM Junior Rodeo event. Red Kingston filled me in on the gymkhana and rodeo arena history but my computer spit up the blue screen of death before I could blog it. Did you know that the original wood arena area started equestrian sport life as a polo field in the 30s? Yes, that's right. Polo in Mountainair.
The Mountainair on a Mission "Art and More Auction" got announced and posted but the intended last pre-auction write up did not get blogged nor reminder emailed to NM Culture announcement list. Grapevine versions report a respectable take. I welcome more detailed reports to blog and am curious about how the print I donated fared. Here's hoping Mission keeps up the good work and joins forces with Margarita Hibb's Relay for Life project. Catch Mountainair chair Lori Autrey at Meds & More to learn more about it.
Incidentally - don't look for all announcements to show up here on Mountainair Arts. Check Mountainair Announcements blog for local events, activities and what not. Two posted today: Clay Workshop and Tijeras Open Air Market.
I'm transitioning local (and area) announcements from here to there. Eventually I hope to spread out posting (not just me posting) so that it becomes an open community announcements area, independent and self-sustaining...
Closing with a Pop Quiz: who can tell us what Mountainair's FAA 3 digit airport code is? And why does it matter?
