Gov. Susana Martinez plans to visit Roswell, Thursday and is slated to attend at least three public events. The governor will attend the New Mexico National Guardâ€™s yellow ribbon ceremony at the Roswell Convention and Civic Center at 10 a.m. The event is meant to pay tribute to local National Guard men and women preparing for deployment in Kosovo.
Martinez then plans to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the opening of the new New Mexico Rehabilitation Center facility in Roswell located at 72 Gail Harris Ave., at noon. The rehabilitation center is inviting residents to take a tour of the building at that time. Martinez will also attend the official swearing in of Al Solis, Roswell Police Departmentâ€™s newest chief, at the Roswell Convention and Civic Center at 2:30 p.m.
