Black eyes for Cannon

Airmen of all ranks will be wearing black eyes today.

It’s part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month activities by Family Advocacy at Cannon Air Force Base.

Advocacy will be painting black eyes on volunteers.

The plan is to see if people talk to volunteers about the problem and if those who say something know where to refer a victim.

Free food

Mayor Gayla Brumfield will proclaim today “Bank of Clovis Day” in honor of the institution’s 10th anniversary.

It’s part of a big tent party from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the bank’s downtown location, Grand Avenue and Main Street.
