"Mud Day" at the Old San Ysidro Church: Corrales. Saturday, April 24, 2010, 9am-4pm




Mud Day - 1991


The Preservation and Maintenance Committee sponsors an event which has come to be called Mudders’ Day Weekend. Friends and neighbors come together to help mix and apply adobe mud to the walls of the Old Church and attend to any other details of restoration that need doing. Anywhere from 30 to 50 people have come to volunteer and there are jobs for everyone of whatever age. A great lunch is provided by the Historical Society Docents and everyone seems to enjoy this shared experience of caring for the Old Church.

There is also a rodeo at the Sheriff's Posse place in Bernalillo this weekend.

And, a horse show at Top Form Arena in Corrales. Points show for Appaloosas. I am definitely going to that. Am also going to Founders Day Fiesta in Old Town, if I can get the family away from the Park 'n The Park early.

Looks like a busy weekend all around.

Rich,

I hope its nice too. Don't mind chilly, but can do without the wind. So much to do and not enough time.

Kite festival was canceled for this weekend and no word on whether or not it will be rescheduled. A tent that had already been erected blew over today in gusting winds, with minor injuries to some people who were there.
