Senior Citizens Center
Hi, my name is Norma Vejil and I am the Executive Director of the Bill McKibben Senior Center. I have been employed with the City of Lovington since March 1987. I strive to offer the Citizens of our community who are 60 years old and above, a clean, safe place to gather with other senior citizens. We have a noon luncheon each Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We also reach out to assist Senior Citizens of Lovington that are home-bound. Visit us at 18 West Avenue F, west of the Pizza Hut or give us a call at 575-396-4161 for more information.

Hello, I am Kristi Mannan and I have served my community at the Lovington Senior Citizen Center since November 2005. I work primarily behind the scenes with the Non-Metro Area Agency on Aging in Reporting and Data requirements to receive state and federal funding. I find it very rewarding to know we have helped a person who is no longer able to prepare their own meal or needs a ride home from the hospital and has no family... aging is inevitable. We try to supply comfort and smiles to Lovington mature residents in the process.

Hi, my name is Linda Stoneham and I have been the Transport Driver for the Lovington Bill McKibben Senior Center since January 2005. For 20 hours each week, I pick up senior citizens at their residence and take them to the Senior Center luncheons, doctor's appointments, pharmacies, to buy groceries, pay bills, go to the bank....anywhere in Lovington.
