Special Award for Lou Hoffman

 

Many of us have been lucky enough to know Lou Hoffman in school (at Valley or UNM), in his official roles in the City Government (presently Director of Financial and Administrative Services), or at our reunions and gatherings where Lou has played an active role on our Reunion Committee.

Lou is a very modest and humble guy, so you probably do not know of the impressive things he was a part of, the driver of, and even the creator of.

So, here is some of ‘the rest of the story’.

The New Mexico Veterans Memorial on Louisiana Blvd, is one example.  If you haven't seen it, you've missed something exceptional. According to experts around the country, it's one of the best Veterans Memorial tributes in the country.  In fact, organizations from around the nation come here for their own ceremonies. It's that unique!

It's not just a sculpture, it's a whole park.  It was Lou's idea, his passion.  He raised money for it, was in on most every aspect of the design, and was the driver in its completion.  It celebrates all veterans.

This Memorial day, a plaque will be placed in the Visitors Center of the Veterans Memorial Park honoring Lou, dedicated by our Class of 64.  A number of our classmates want that plaque to be something distinctive and are making donations.  Many of you might want to be a part of this effort, so please join us and celebrate one more member of our very special class. 

If there is any extra money donated, it will go to pay for the ceremony and support this website. Each contribution no matter the size is important - Thank You!

If you want to help, please mail a check to:  

Glenn Fellows – 530 Chamiso Lane NW, Albuquerque, NM 87107

Thanks to all of you who wished me a Happy Birthday. I don't look at emails or computer very often. It's a giant time killer!
