Faces of Deming


If you have ever taken a journey to Rockhound State Park, you’ve probably seen or met with these two “Faces of Deming.”

Sally Allen has been the president of Friends of Rockhound State Park since 2012. Her volunteer jobs include management of the visitors center and its volunteers, upkeep and coordination of volunteers for the indigenous garden area, monthly meetings for the Friends of Rockhound and coordination of activities at the park.

Robert Apodaca has been the ranger at both Spring Canyon State Park and Rockhound State Park since 2008. Robert has been instrumental in the upkeep and management of both parks, always smiling, helpful and supportive of the Friends of Rockhound State Park. In Robert’s “spare time,” he loves to work with wood and has quite a portfolio of his finished projects.
