  • A graduation party honoring Angelica Abeyta was held on Saturday at the VFW Hall. A large group of friends and family attended to congratulate Angelica and to wish her well.

    They enjoyed dinner, visiting and dancing to the music of the Quemoso band.

    The hall was decorated with Christmas and University of New Mexico colors. The family had made copies of Angelica’s graduation photos and attached them to glass tiles and then put decorations around them, for the centerpieces of each table.

  • I still meet people who say they were at the Valmora auction and/or the auction we had here at the ranch, way back in the early 1990s. Valmora was my family’s tuberculosis sanatorium established in 1904. Obviously when a place collects almost 90 years of “stuff” the only way to move it out is with a sale.
