HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Clovis Veteran’s Day Parade

Clovis-Portales 1244 once again put together a float for the Veterans Day parade here in Clovis. For the 6th year in a row, we won Veterans Parade Grand Champion award. During the parade we took the opportunity to pass out “Drug Awareness Frisbees, Footballs, Coloring books etc. to the children. A dual community event!
Thank you to ALL who helped build it with a shout out to Romana Hall Committee member (not pictured), Sean Sinclair PER (not pictured), Entertainment Committee members Vielka Reader, ER Valentino Martinez, Leading Knight Barb Powell, (all pictured).

Thank you to the community of El Paso that joined us at our annual trunk or treat – mini haunted house!

A big shout-out to everyone you know who you are that made it happen.

End of Summer School Carnival

On July 23rd we had a children’s carnival with cotton candy, snow cones, popcorn, games and prizes. We also had the NM Avengers there to help us hand out 207 backpacks. We had 313 children and 182 adults come through that day to join in on the fun! We made a difference in our community that day and it felt great!

Gallup visit by President Hitchcock

President Jerry Hitchcock and Exalted Ruler Rodriguez from our NMEA President’s Dinner in Gallup. We were fortunate to have President Hitchcock here after being “flocked” with Pink Flamingos as part of a fundraiser for Alzheimer’s Association. Gallup Lodge donated $2000.00 to the Alzheimer’s Association in August
