Friendship Pot by Award-winning Jemez potter Judy Toya
On August 21st, 2014 we were honored to receive the New Mexico Humanitarian Award.
The New Mexico Humanitarian Award is a distinguished recognition program born from the desire to raise awareness of the spirit of humanity and to inspire individuals, organizations, and businesses to pursue humanitarian goals.
Friendship Pots were awarded to honorees. Handcrafted by award-winning Jemez potter Judy Toya. History of the Friendship Pot states that after a rain shower, friends gather around the rain pot to see how much rain water has been gathered, sometimes holding hands or just facing each other... they talk, laugh & share love and harmony of the way of life.
The evening was much like this – sharing talk, laughter love and harmony with the other awardees and our Cowboy Up! crew and family. We were honored to share the evening with fellow awardees; Dr. Cheryl L. Willman-UNM Cancer Center, Wendy Lewis, Executive Director~McCune Charitable Foundation, CEO's Chet Stewart and Duffy Swan~ French & French and Susan Seligman, Regional Executive Anti Defamation League.
Many thanks to David Simon and David Buchholtz from the JCC and Brad Steward - Pulakos CPA for a memorable evening indeed.
