Quay County Sun - Serving the High Plains

Pages past - June 13

 

June 1969

• Tucumcari hosted the annual state 4-H horse show and rodeo for the eighth straight year.

• Several days of heavy rains sent water 18 inches deep over the spillway at Ute Lake Dam. Conchas Lake had risen 3.7 feet, and was raising a tenth of a foot every hour. Pajarito Creek was full from bank to bank and running strong. Construction on the Quay apartments was 40 percent complete, with tenants expected to be able to move in by mid August.

• The Pinata Festival committee was given permission to lay out a motorcycle track at the Metropolitan Park, for races during the festival.
