Representatives of Grammy’s House, Artesia’s domestic violence shelter, join Mayor Raye Miller last week as he proclaims October as Domestic Violence Awareness Month in Artesia. “Domestic violence and abuse have negative effects that stretch far beyond the individuals directly involved,” the proclamation states. “We must continue to build alliances among governments, community associations, businesses, and education and religious organizations to strengthen our families and teach alternatives to violence.” Pictured with Miller are, from left, Frances Arredondo, Darby Vernon, Sheila Simer, Amanda Clements, Celina Bryant, executive director of Grammy’s House, Nancy Elrod and Mike Elliott.
