Quoting Dr. Seuss; “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not,” Artesia MainStreet Executive Director, Rebecca Prendergast spoke to the crowd that had gathered Friday evening at the round-a-bout at Second Street
and Quay Avenue in Artesia, to witness the long awaited unveiling of ‘The Foundation’. Fighting back tears of emotion, Prendergast said, “We are fortunate in Artesia to have, as Dr. Seuss would say, ‘someone like you’.
