Cesar Chavez Day

For Cesar Chavez Day, we teamed up with our Americorps friends in Aztec, NM. We gave presentations for kindergartners on his work for farmers unions. Then we took them out to the school gardens and gave it a great revitalization. The kids were so excited to pick up trash that they trampled on half the plants in the process. But after the classes came and went, the five of us continued to pick up the memorial garden.

On the grind

Live chatting with our awesome designer!

Whew! The skatepark project is in full steam! Telletha and I have been working hard on budgeting and grant writing and at the same time, Sierra and the skaters have been talking with our designer from Albuquerque and fundraising locally. We all got together and sold balloons at the Shiprock-Kirtland games and earned nearly $700!! The skaters added some sick new equipment to the design, so we’ll need all the funding we can get to make this park the best. Next month, we’re going to present the new design and budget to the Chapter House to get it re-approved, but then we can asking for the big bucks.
