Business of the Month
Wild ‘Bout Kids Childcare Center was named Business of the Month for July by the Chamber. Owner Erika Chavez and the staff were able to successfully adapt to working in a pandemic while keeping children and staff safe. The business is committed to and involved in the community and has been the sponsor of the last two Ambassadors Free Family Movie Nights.
Volunteer of the Month
The Joe Blair Family was named Volunteers of the Month for their project of love dedicated to the late Joe Blair, veteran, businessman and long-time commander of the American Leigion Post 31 in Portales. The family, with donations from others, constructed a new covered pavilion at the grounds where Memorial Day and other services are held at the Portales Cemetery. Pictured accepting the award from Ambassador Chair Casey Peacock, left, are Joe’s daughter Judy Hall, her husband Jim and her granddaughter Landree Hall. Joe’s great-grandson Connor Hall built the structure with help from family members. The new structure is wheelchair accessible and provides cover for speakers and dignitaries.
