New Mexico governor promotes summer reading, meals
Question of the Day
CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - Gov. Susana Martinez is out promoting a summer reading program and a free summer meal program for children across New Mexico.
She was in Clovis on Wednesday, reading a book to kids at a downtown public library and talking to them about the importance of reading.
Martinez announced the start of summer reading challenge. It offers a variety of prizes to children ages 5-12 who read at least 12 books by July 31 and submit a form that’s available at libraries around the state.
Portales radio station KENW reports Martinez also announced expansion of the summer meal program. It now features about 700 places in New Mexico where kids can eat free healthy and nutritious meals all summer long.
Martinez says nearly 2 million such meals were served last summer.
