Building Community
FROM THE GROUND UP!
New Dawn Project has existed for about a year as an intentional community. We are in the formative stage our development – like a child eager, excited, and ready to learn, with lots of energy to expend and fun to be had! On the other hand, we are operated (parented by) folks who have put many years of time and effort into community planning, who have structures in place to ensure our good growth, and who are committed to New Dawn’s total nurturing. Join us in this adventure!
As a guest of New Dawn Project, you will need to be able to feed yourself, clean up after yourself, and contribute to the community. There is no rent. We are open to whatever combination of couples/ individuals/ families, etc. who want to live together here. Most ideally we are seeking 6 – 12 people who can work independently and cooperatively, leave each other alone when needed, hang out and appreciate one another when wanted. Community-minded and oriented folks are welcome to check us out. Temporary guests welcome also. Your questions are welcome. We are open. . . . . !

We welcome Family to rest or visit – a day, a month, or to become a member of New Dawn.

Let us CELEBRATE TOGETHER!PLEASE NOTE: New Dawn can and will provide rides as we are able to and from the Edgewood and/or Moriarty exits of I-40 to the property. However, we cannot guarantee rides from other locations, such as Albuquerque. If in doubt, CALL and ask ahead. 🙂

    who are you my friend . SO MANY OF US LEFT PORTALES. AND IN THE END WE LOST SOMETHING WE SHARED AND YET KEPT AS IF WE ARE TOGETHER AGAIN IN POVERTY RACISM AND SHAME THE BROTHERHOOD OUR REMEMBRANCES OUR FAME IN A DIRT ROAD TOWN TO SMALL FOR US TO REMAIN. THE FACES STILL HAUNT ME BUT I CAN’ T REMEMBER YOUR NAME

    • Robert: You’d have known me as Doyce Purcell if you knew me before I left town Junior year of HS. After that whenever I came back you’d have known me as Jack Purcell. Your name doesn’t ring a bell with me, so maybe we weren’t acquainted. If I’d graduated in Portales I’d have been Class of ’61. You might remember my car, white ’40 model Chevi sedan. Looked a lot like Rod Doak’s, but his was a 1947.

      During high school I was something of an outcast. Mostly sneaked around dating Hispanic girls from across the tracks… Rita Gallegos, Juanita somebodyorother, whichever other ones were of a mind to sneak around dating a white guy in hopes their families wouldn’t catch them at it. We didn’t show ourselves much in town. Went to Clovis, or out to Taylor’s Grove parking, mostly.

      Ran around some with Jimmy Murrell…Candyapple Red ’49 Ford with blue moon disks and fender skirts. I didn’t have many friends after I got into a lot of trouble in the 9th grade and came nigh unto getting sent to Springer Reform School to finish out my school career.

      Thanks for coming by. Good knowing someone else has fond memories of Portales. Jack Purcell
