1992: Clovis/Curry County Chamber of Commerce members agreed to look into “avenues for a larger role” in producing the Clovis Music Festival.

Chamber board members said Vi Petty, the event’s driving force to honor her late husband Norman Petty’s career, had been ill for several months and was unable to lead the annual project.

Vi Petty died three days later, on March 22, 1992. She was 63.

The Chamber is the primary promoter of the music festival that continues today.

1967: Trans-Texas Airways was encouraging travelers to “Come fly with us” out of Clovis in addition to Texas cities.

TTA out of Clovis offered direct flights to Albuquerque.

Eastern New Mexico residents wanting to fly to Los Angeles could leave Clovis at 10:35 a.m. and, after making a connecting flight with Trans World Airlines, arrive in LA a little after 3 p.m. the same day.
