Honoring Those Who Serve In Armed Forces

Luna News

If you are reading this, thank a teacher; if you are reading this in English, thank a soldier. (Taken from the official website).
In honor of Memorial Day coming soon I tried to locate as many of our family members as I could who are serving, recently returned, or are preparing to serve in the armed forces.
Our love and prayers go out to these young men and women and their families. Remember as we enjoy our freedoms, that they are fighting for that right for you.
• Carolyn Long’s niece Jenny Trujillo Stelzer: Army medic in Iraq.
• Jerry and Kay Kinney’s grandson Brandon Kinney: Army Special Forces, Kentucky.
• Tana Muldoon’s son Timothy A. Symonds: Helicopter Pilot, Ft. Rucker, Louisiana.
•Rick Laakman’s son Joe Laakman: Army, currently serving in Afghanistan.
• Raean Harris’ brother SPC Scot Martin: 1404 Transportation Company in the Arizona National Guard; recently returned from Camp Arisjan in Kuwait.
• Dan and Kaye Mindar’s son Joe Mindar: leaving for Ft. Knox, Kentucky, Army Calvary boot camp in June.
If we have missed anyone contact mer for the next column by Tuesday at 10 a.m.


Luna is proud to recognize Kayli Laney as our 2010 graduate from Reserve High School. Kayli has also recently returned from a very successful (and fun) trip to the BPA state finals.

Luna Community Center

Our Community Center has been busy hosting a variety of meetings the past couple of weeks. One very important meeting was to address the Luna Ruins. The U.S. Forest Service archaeologist Jeanne Schofer from Quemado Ranger District presented a slide show of the current conditions of the site and an interest survey was initiated.
Luna Parks and Fire Department are planning a work day on Saturday June 5 to set the playground equipment at the community center. Contact Ann Marie Nicolds for more information.

This year’s Independence Day celebration will be held Saturday July 3 at the community center.

Get Well Wishes

Leann Hulsey Wilkerson had surgery again this past Monday and is hoping to get to Luna as soon as she can and to Rick Laakman who recently returned home from a short hospital stay.
Our love prayers are with them and their families.

Preparedness Corner

Mark your calendars for the second annual Preparedness Fair from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday June 12 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Stake Center across the street from Basha’s in Eagar, Arizona.
There will be over 50 booths with a wealth of information, hands on demos and mini-classes. Also a U. of A. extension office representative will be on hand to test the gauges on pressure cookers for accuracy.
It is never too late to start; Project Noah flyers are still available by sending a legal envelope with double postage to P.O. Box 42 Luna, NM 87824.
