Vida at the Fiesta’s

Vida Del Norte was happy to participate in the Questa Fiestas and would like to congratulate the 2024 Fiesta Queen Esperanza Quintana. The 2024 Fiestas were as graceful as our Reina.

Our community gathered for the event of the year where tradition and culture shine. Music played as local food vendors, artists, and even a masseuse took in the sun. Children played and families united. In the crowd booths shared resources with our community. Vida Del Norte Partnered with the NM National Guard to provide a simulation trailer for adults. This trailer introduced parents and community members to look for in a child’s room when looking for paraphernalia. The National Guard educated all age groups on the dangers of drinking, and drug use. The main campaign is a movement that is happening across the state with a prevention initiative called “Keep Them Alive”.

This initiative gave insight to parents on what to be aware of and what to look for in their child’s room. Prevention is the key component for Vida Del Norte, and we were very grateful to have had the participation from the National Guard. Vida Del Norte has been showing up for our youth at events sharing information on vaping, alcohol and drug misuse.

The first weekend of June Vida Del Norte partnered with LOR and hosted the 2024 Fish Derby to kick off the summer. Prizes were given to participants and everyone who attended enjoyed themselves. July 1st will be the start of the Vida Camp it will run through July 31st for ages 5-12 all those who are interested please sign up at www.localogy.org. If any older students would like to participate, please contact Maria Gonzalez (575)779-2260.
