The company is a great NM business story because they sell their products nation-wide. Michael Melendrez is the owner and a Rotarian himself. He will talk to our club about how it’s like building a small business in NM as well as how to combat the effects of droughts and how his products help with that.

A great meeting to invite a friend to!
