‘Never Forget!’ theme mixes celebration with remembrance

Entries in Friday’s Homecoming parade were a mix of celebrations of hometown pride and solemn tributes to the events of 9/11, such as the Ground Zero replica on the Mack Energy Corporation float pictured in the gallery below. Mack Energy shared top honors in the community competition with Elite Well Services. Krayola Kids took second and Silver Oak Drilling third. Artesia High School elected not to select a winner in the class competition.
