Community events highlight weekend

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

This weekend is an excellent chance to support kids throughout the community, starting in the heart of White Rock.
Chamisa Elementary will host a carnival from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., to raise the final portion of money for some shade structures. This is a great time for alumni to come back and get their spot in line for the staff member dunk tank.
If sports are your arena, then head on down to the baseball fields near overlook, for opening day.
One year, at opening day, a gentleman announced, “Remember there’s no crying in baseball.” I remember thinking, of course there is crying in baseball. Have you ever been to a T-ball game?
Rumor has it that Alex Kirk returns to his hometown to toss out the first pitch. How wonderful for younger kids to see someone who started as one of them, endure to accomplish his current success, with a bright future ahead.
Oh and someone tell Eva Pacheco, at LAHS that there’s no better time than now for autographing those shoes.
If you head uptown, it is Earth Day and some lovely PEEC activities.
Those who enjoy a little shopping on the weekend can keep that money on the hill, with the Pegasus Parking lot sale. You can find your one-stop treasure hunting excursion and aid a high school project.
Last but not least, if you enjoy a little cushy on your tushy, there is one final push for the U.S Bank Rally for Rewards to benefit our local athletics program. Six NMAA schools will receive $2,500 and one school will win a special $15,000 donation.
You just need to visit laschools.net/lahs and look for the U.S. Bank information on the home page.
Sixty seconds of your time and an email address is all that is needed and at last check we were in the lead.
Finally just to make it a well rounded column, don’t forget Administrative Assistants Day is upon us. Wednesday, April 24 is a day to recognize those that really run the business. The day is sometimes called Secretary’s Day, but either way, plan ahead for next week.

Assets In Action is sponsored by the JJAB and the Los Alamos Chamber of Commerce.
