The New Mexico Aquarium Society is hosting the very first fish swap in the state of New Mexico. A fish swap is a fun event where local hobbyists and vendors can buy, sale or swap fish, coral, aquarium plants and pond related items. This will be a great opportunity to join the only fish club in New Mexico. The swap will be held at Mud Monsters 5101 Edith Blvd. Albuquerque, NM 87107. March 14, 2020 starting at 1PM and concluding at 4PM.
My Santa services are available this holiday season.
This Sunday we have this special workshop with the focus being on Soul Retrieval & Healing Trauma. We hope you will join if you are able! https://www.facebook.com/events/2469369866608413/
The 'Holy Walkamolies '... would like invite everyone, to come their Ice Bucket Challenge. All the money raised, will go towards The Walk to Benefit ALS. The event will be from 11am to 1 pm. Hamburgers and hot dogs available for $5. Lots of fun...bring a friend. Challenge each other to the Ice Bucket Challenge. Thanks to Border States Electric...for hosting the event. And thanks to a few local radio celebrities...who are willing to come out and host the event. There will be people from the New Mexico ALS Chapter, ready to assist everyone in registering for the walk on, September 22nd. Thank you all. I'll see you there.
We are so close!! My name is Yvette and I was diagnosed with ALS almost 4 years ago. I am a fighter and no where close to giving up. Each year, the ALS community holds various fundraisers...in order to raise Awareness and collect donations, so scientists can find a cure. You see....there is NO CURE! ALS, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, slowly robs a person of their independence and life expectancy is 2-5 years. In fact, every 90-minutes, someone is either diagnosed with ALS or passes away from this horrible disease. It affects the lives of so many people. ALS takes away your ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe...literally turning a person into stone. September 22nd, Albuquerque will be hosting The Walk To Defeat ALS, at the Isotopes Park. It is a great way for people to come out and show their support, while raising money for a cure. Will you help? My team, "The Holy Walkamolies", will be walking for the 4th year and I'm looking for team members and donations. You can register to be a part of the fun online, it is simple, painless and free. Join an existing team or create your own team. If you can't make the walk, perhaps you will consider joining a team and becoming a virtual walker. Donate what you can afford and help spread the word. Everyone can make a difference. I hope to see you there.
Join Vero!!!!

Hey since Cottonwood is out for Westside Summerfest why not have it on the real Westside instead of just assuming the far NW part of the city is the Westside. Use the former site where the Lowe’s was going to be built at Central and Unser SW.
