An Earth Day activity took place in Wagon Mound as the soil was prepared and a garden planted by the youth in Jaylyn Maestas and Lousia Maestas classes with the help of Sophia Martinez of the Concerned Citizens of Wagon Mound and of Mora County and Jennifer Bellin.
Another special time of garden activity took place on Cinco de Mayo while traditional Spanish music was played and songs were sung in celebration of Cinco de Mayo.

I continue to find interesting and historical writings and newspaper columns in my family's collection of stuff. My parents were great friends of Walter and Delma Vivian. Walter was the editor of the Optic in 1950, and his wife, Delma was a talented reporter for the paper.
