Rose Talk with ABQ Rose Society
Saturday, February 25 from 9-10:30 a.m. at Bachechi Open Space (9521 Rio Grande Blvd. NW)
Roses bring beauty and elegance to Albuquerque and have a long tradition in the city. John Luceros and Andy Core from the Albuquerque Rose Society will lead a presentation on the best roses to select for this area, how to care for roses so they will thrive in your landscape, and the dos and don’ts of rose maintenance.
Traditional Music: The Roots of NM Culture
Sunday, February 26 from 1:00-2:30 at the Gutierrez-Hubbell House (6029 Isleta Blvd. SW)
Don Francisco takes us on a musical journey, with violin and guitar accompaniment, that will span the 18th century through the early 19th century. In a narrative format, Don Francisco depicts the anticipation of an upcoming musical event, such as a fiesta or wedding celebration. We will be carried back in time to imagine the ambiance of early Spanish village social life and all the preparations for such a celebration. The music features Valses, Polkas, Cunas, Varsovianas, and other special dances such as El Valse de los Paños, y Valse del Escoba, La Raspa, etc., hopefully to stir nostalgia and bring back many memories of our grandparents and great grandparents.
Mindfulness in Nature
Sunday, February 26 from 1-3 p.m. at Bachechi Open Space (9521 Rio Grande Blvd. NW)
Take time out of your busy life to slow down and observe the wonders around you. It’s easy to lose touch and let life slip by if you don’t make the time and space to nourish the mind, body and soul. Featured speaker Mollie Parsons kicks off a Mindfulness in Nature Series at Bachechi Open Space by presenting skills and techniques for quieting the mind, deepening observations and understanding nature around you.

Procedures for Property Owners to Amend their Unit Covenants
The Sandia Heights Homeowners Association (SHHA) cannot modify or change any unit covenants. Any covenant changes or modifications can only be done by the property owners within their individual unit. SHHA recognizes the right of property owners to amend the covenants of their units in accordance with procedures set forth in the covenants of each unit. SHHA has developed information to facilitate that process and to ensure that a proposed amendment is in agreement with established covenants. To avoid potential conflicts with the existing covenants, it is suggested that the proposed amendment(s) be presented to the SHHA Board of Directors for review prior to initiating a petition signature effort.
