Good morning Albuquerque! Like many of you, the Patch team is taking some time off to celebrate Memorial Day, so you won’t see a newsletter in your inbox on Monday morning. We will be back on Tuesday with your next update, but in the meantime, here’s what’s happening around town this holiday weekend.
First, today’s weather:
Warm; windy in the afternoon. High: 92 Low: 59.
Here are the top three stories in Albuquerque today:
- The City of Albuquerque announced its first field office meant to assist veterans. The Veteran and Military Affairs field office will be located near Gibson and Louisiana at the New Mexico Veterans Memorial Park. The office was previously located inside City Hall. The new location will hopefully be more accessible for those that need it. (KRQE News 13)
