Hello Everyone,

I am sending this out early; unfortunately I broke my foot and very badly so I will have emergency surgery tomorrow and unable to walk or drive for at least 6 weeks.  I appreciate those that reached out already and sent prayers.

Our speaker Thursday is Randy West, Supervisor at the Farmington Civics Center.  He has been in professional theatre most of his life and he has served as Supervisor for 4 years and also as the Artistic Director for the Four Corners Musical Theatre Company. He and his wife, Claire, have 3 sons.  Randy will give an update on what’s going on at the Civic Center as well as the summer outdoor theater.

Thank you to our speaker last week Mark Duncan, State Representative. Steve Neville was called to Santa Fe by Governor Grisham; he has worked on a $100 million dollar water conservation bill for the past 5 years.  She had called a press conference for the bill signing and requested Steve to be there.

Mark gave us an update on the recent Santa Fe Session that had just ended.
