Congratulations, Marilyn Gendron!

Meem 70 bday in Durango copyOn May 9, 2020, the Archaeological Society of New Mexico (ASNM) will formally present five individuals, including the GCAS's favorite Speakers Coordinator, Marilyn (Meem) Gendron, with the Richard A. Bice Achievement Award. This annual award recognizes individuals who have made significant and sustained contributions to advance the purpose of their local archaeological society/organization and the ASNM's goals of documenting, preserving and protecting the archaeological heritage of New Mexico. Nominees do not have to be professional archaeologists, but their achievements and dedication certainly stand out.

Meem with SF petrosIn Meem's case, she has spent many years in the GCAS as an active member, officer, and Board member. She's easy to spot on field trips when the weather is cool enough for her to wear her trademark coral-pink windbreaker. She currently plans our monthly speakers' lineup, which involves locating speakers from throughout the Southwest and cheerfully coordinating their professional schedules with our own meeting agenda. If you have enjoyed the quality talks that Meem puts together for our monthly meetings, please take time to thank her for all her hard work the next time you see her.

Meem joins at least TEN other GCAS members who are past Bice Award recipients. We are proud of you, Meem. Thank you for everything you do for us!

So happy you are recognized for all you do, Meem. We certainly appreciate all the time you put in helping the Mimbres Culture Heritage Site volunteers when we have groups of children on field trips to the site. Thank you and congratulations!
