TIJERAS PUEBLO EDUCATION CENTER
The log jam looks like it has been broken. The US Forest Service Centennial Grant for $40,000 has been reinstated. The New Mexico State appropriation, through the Village of Tijeras, of $50,000 has been allocated. The required contractual and procedural paper work is currently being established.
The services of Terry Booze Construction as general contractor have been engaged. The professional tasks of interior framing, roofing, rough electrical, HVAC, and plumbing are anticipated to be paid from these monies. The Forest Service engineer has required that these tasks be done by licensed sub-contractors. We anticipate that there will be opportunities for volunteer participation in tasks such as interior plastering, flooring, sealing, painting, etc. Our goal is to have the building weather tight by November 2006.
We wish to thank all the many volunteers that have so freely given of their time and energy to get us to where we are at this point. As we said above, we will be calling on volunteers in the future.
FROM THE PRESIDENT'S CORNER
I personally want to thank each and every one of you for attending and supporting our Lecture Series. Be sure to look for our announcements of next season's speakers starting in September. Also I want to welcome all our new members. We appreciate your support!
We do need help in some areas, particularly in grant writing and fundraising for the exhibit designs in the Interpretive Center. We also invite you to get involved and help us in planning field trips, interpretive tours, hands-on activities with the school groups and many other activities. If you have any suggestions for other activities or events - we are always open for new ideas!
I would like to thank Karen Armstrong and all the dedicated volunteers who help every Wednesday in cataloguing the Tijeras Pueblo artifacts. They are making great progress. Many thanks to Candace Lord for her generous donation of the HP printer. She is also the webmaster and has done a fantastic job of creating our website and keeping it up to date. A big thanks to Candace for all her hard work.
Nancy Woodworth, President of Friends of Tijeras Pueblo
