Hubbard Foundation awards grants to SE NM non-profits By Eugene Heathman Editor eugene@ruidosofreepress.com

Ruidoso Downs Racetrack and Casino Turf Club was the venue for the 2012 Hubbard Foundation’s annual S.E.NM. Grant Program’s awards ceremony. More than 50 of the recipients attended the races prior to the catered dinner directed by Robert Donaldson, executive director of the RD and Joan Dale Hubbard Foundation. “We’re pleased you’re here tonight to celebrate our South East New Mexico Grant Program. This is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to connect and see what each other is doing in our communities and maybe learn from one another new ways to make our organizations better,” Donaldson said. In 1986, Mr. and Mrs. Hubbard established the RD and Joan Dale Hubbard Foundation and since that time, they have provided more than $31 million in grants to deserving organizations across America with more than $14 million of that in grants going to improve the lives of the citizens of New Mexico. “In 2001, the Hubbard Foundation’s Southeast New Mexico Grant Program was established in seven southeast New Mexico counties, specifically for organizations like yours, organizations that work hard to improve the quality of life of the area’s citizens. Your groups have proved time and time again, it doesn’t take huge grants to a make a huge difference in the lives of people,” Donaldson said. Since 2001, more than $2 million in grants have been awarded to a to-

tal of 397 state organizations. In 2012, the Foundation awarded $249,000 to 54 community groups throughout southeast New Mexico. For the 2013 Hubbard Foundation Grant Program, proposals are accepted until July 31 from counties, municipalities, public schools and 501-c-3 non-profit organizations in Chaves, Curry, Eddy, Lea, Lincoln, Otero and Roosevelt counties. Successful grants from $1,000 to $20,000 will be awarded in November, 2012. Proposals should improve the quality of life in a specific area. Requests for general operation, personnel costs or personal grants will not qualify. Contact the Hubbard Foundation for an application or information at PO Box 2498, Ruidoso, NM 88355, by phone at 575-258-5919 or by email at info@hubbardfoundation.com.

Music in the Mountains of Cloudcroft

They say the 3rd time is a charm, and 3rd Annual Bad Ass Mountain Music Festival (BAMM) will be just that. There will be music heard for miles and miles, and a lot of horns this year too. Mark your calendars and take Dad out for a sweet Father’s Day weekend. Enjoy a relaxing, fun weekend for the whole family with music sure to please everyone. BAMM Festival takes place June 15 - 17 at Ski Cloudcroft, just 2 miles east of Cloudcroft on Highway 82. The gates open Friday evening at 4 p.m. The music starts at 7 p.m. with our hometown favorites, The Eclectic Bones. Following them will be a band not to miss, Le Chat Lunatique of Albuquerque. They refer to their music as “filthy, mangy jazz,” a signature sound that will have you up and dancing. Music will continue into the night with Da’Kine of Alamogordo. Pack your camping equipment, RV, or wherever you plan to rest your head. There will be designated camping areas where you can set up camp, meet the neighbors, and sit back and enjoy the cool mountain air. RV’s are welcome but space is limited, so get there early. If camping is not your thing, there are plenty of places in Cloudcroft to stay. The Lodge has a great package just for BAMM attendees, which includes your tickets and a T-shirt (575-682-2566). Spruce Cabins has enough space for everyone if you are in a large group or just the family. Don’t forget the Tree House B&B – Connie will spoil you. Music will kick off Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m. The lift will be running this year. There will be hiking and mountain biking, thanks to the amazing rain, from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Make sure you take at least one ride up on the lift and leisurely stroll back down taking in the beautiful scenery. The ski area acts as a natural amphitheater and the music sounds amazing from the top. The Music

will go well into the night with acts from Casual Fridays, a ska band from El Paso, who will bring out the horns and really make you move. The Lusitania will be visiting us from El Paso as well. Everyone is talking about them and their awesome country music. The Hillside Gamblers, with influences like Muddy Waters and The Rolling Stones, are ready to take the music scene and turn it upside down with their own brand of fuel-driven, soul-shaking, good old’ Rock and Roll. The music continues with several more performances. Along with great music there will be great food, great crafts and great fun for the kids. BAMM also has a little something special arranged for Saturday night. Make sure the kids catch some fire action before they head to bed. It’s going to be amazing. Kenny Grigar will be back this year with his solar trailer, helping BAMM with their power. Make sure you stop by and tell him thanks for the power. He is very generous allowing BAMM to run off of his solar power for a couple days. He builds these trailers specifically for festivals and has run 14-day festivals using something very similar to the one that will be out at BAMM. A weekend pass is $20 – come and go as you please. Kids 12 and under are free. Camping is free (at the festival grounds). No pets. Quiet hours are from 2 - 8 a.m. A huge thank you to all the sponsors this year from the BAMM committee (Bri Ligon, Justin Munoz, Tara Johnston & Kara Cochran)! “We couldn’t do it without you!” To Mike Beckler, “Thank you for building the BAMM website. We really appreciate you and your hard work!” For more information, visit us online at www.bammfestival.com or become our facebook fan at www.facebook.com/BAMMFestival.
