New Mexico Centennial Newsletter post or notice that it disappeared? I inadvertently deleted the post cleaning out duplicate post (another story), but here's the link: New Mexico Centennial Foundation | eNewsletter. Spanish Market in Santa Fe was the lead story, which is now too late to celebrate. Go next year then; pictures and the Spanish Colonial Arts Society blog can tide you over until then. Visit the museum. Read the out of date newsletters.
Learn Spanish. I recommend Instituto Cervantes in Albuquerque. There are also a number of online resources such as this one. Curating a learning resource site that includes qualified local instruction would be a good project.
Now for what's coming (no, none are listed as official Centennial events...by now, don't you know better than even to ask?)
already blogged and more than once including social media rounds, but doing it again. Add another round on the iCreate page since Lenora and local youngsters from the musical outreach program will be in it. Both pieces that Lenora performs are in traditional Spanish ballad or romance form. Flores de mí jardín, which she authored would be a credit to any romancero.
Then there is Sunflower Festival, not the next Saturday but the one after that, August 25. So today I did a quick update over on Mountainair Online. Of course the arts council page is "official," but I have a sentimental attachment to this "unofficial" page ~ not just the original event page but also my first Mountainair page.
Check my "unofficial" page and if you have something that day ~ specials, a sale, a community or church yard or sidewalk sale, sunflower art, vending and want more publicity for your wares (event publicity tends to be more general than specific), etc ~ so please let me know.
I'm past due for a local businesses / shop local post too. So send me that too, whether for here, Mountainair Announcements, both or just our Facebook manifestation.
