The kids at Grammy’s House wrote down their Christmas gift wishes, and the customers and employees of First American Bank did their best to fulfill them. First American Bank placed the wishes at Raburn Chiropractic, B&B Newsstand, La Fonda Restaurant, The Wellhead Restaurant & Brewpub, Pecos Diamond Steakhouse, and Adobe Rose, and the people of Artesia did the rest, purchasing gifts and placing them under the trees at First National Bank and Grammy’s House. Today, those gifts were presented to Grammy’s House representatives by First American Bank representatives, to be distributed to the children on Christmas.
