Mescalero community member, Frances Jolene Blake, enjoyed this time of year. She especially loved the joy it brought to all the little children. This year, in memory of Jolene, her family is donating 500 plastic eggs to the Community Easter Egg Hunt.
A huge THANK YOU to the family for generous donation!!
This is what they want to share:
“During the month of February 2021, our dearly beloved “Jolo” (Frances Jolene Blake) put forth every effort to purchase over 500 plastic eggs, to fill them with candy, so they could be ready for the Community Easter Egg Hunt. Jolene loved little children so much, she wanted to do this to show our children of Mescalero just how much they meant to her. So today, March 31, 2021, for the community hunt, the family prepared the eggs she bought, filled them with candy, and is donating them all to the Mescalero Apache Tribe, so Jolene’s wish can be fulfilled.
The memory of her kind heart and compassion for “little children” will live on going forth. Thank you everyone for being a part of this special event.
Here are a couple of pictures of what our “Jolo” wanted!
“A limb has fallen from the family tree… but the cherished memories will remain in our hearts forever. Enjoy your family, your loved ones. God bless you all”.
From the family of FRANCES JOLENE BLAKE “Jolo”, we wish you a blessed, joyous and memorable Easter!
