MUSEUM SUNDAY
We decide to take advantage of the fact that all state museums are free admission to state residents on Sundays, to visit the Fiesta Exhibit at the History Museum

We took a break from the Museum tour to enjoy a concert by The Community Band in Federal Oval Park. Posted by Picasa
One of the reasons we have such an affinity for the Community Band--besides the fact that their concerts are free!--is that Daddy was a member (Trumpet) in the late 1930s and early 1940s. This photo was in the program, but we couldn't identify Daddy. Posted by Picasa

Our lovely Fiesta Queen for 2006--Jessica Lucero. She was an excellent student in my class and will be a commendable queen! At twenty-six, she has the maturity and grace that will add a lot of class and style to the role of Queen. Posted by Picasa
Beauty times two--Jessica and her sister Bernadette who was also a wonderful student of mine. I also posed a third picture with their brother Henry--another favorite student--but my camera batteries failed me. Henry is a clothing designer and he has designed and sewn a new cape for the Fiesta Queen, so I will definetly get photos of that once Fiesta begins! Posted by Picasa

The end of a lovely day--Miss Sarah is ready to perform in a pre-Fiesta event on the plaza. Posted by Picasa
