  • This year’s CROP Hunger Walk and Turkey Trot is raring to go with enthusiasm.
    Among those preparing for Sunday’s event are Ted Williams and Vincent Chiravalle. Each of these gentlemen has committed energy to help this great community effort succeed. The race starts at 2 p.m. in Los Alamos Middle School cafeteria. Registration begins at 1 p.m.
    The CROP Hunger Walk and Turkey Trot has been held annually in Los Alamos since 1997.
    Williams has been involved in Atomic City Roadrunners for 30 years and is a co-creator of the CROP Walk/Turkey Trot event. Each year, he takes care of reserving the middle school, measuring and marking the course, timing the runners and walkers and other details. Ted notes that, before the CROP Walk was added to it, the last race of the season for the Atomic City Roadrunners would always be a Turkey Trot, held on North Mesa around Thanksgiving time.

  • At the November meeting of the Los Alamos Mountaineers, Josh Payne will provide a first-hand account of his 22 days on the Denali, also known as Mt. McKinley, as he and a partner tackled a path to the summit that very few of those drawn to the mountain attempt.
    Mt. McKinley is the highest peak in North America, more than 20,000 feet tall, with temperatures framed by its proximity to the Arctic Circle, winds that can top 10 miles per hour, and an unforgiving landscape of glaciers and crevasses, Denali is a siren song to adventurers and mountaineers.
    The meeting will be 7 p.m. Wednesday at Fuller Lodge. In addition to Payne’s talk, “Degenerate States of Euphoria in the Valley of Death,” the meeting offers refreshments, reports on recent and upcoming trips, safety tips drawn from outdoor adventures and more. The meeting is open to any interested members of the public, as well as club members.
    “In my talk I will tell the story of our climb,” Payne said. “From the highest highs to the lowest lows there were many different paths to euphoric moments on that mountain.”

  • There are several great community events taking place this weekend and into next week, so as we begin to kick off the holiday season, whatever your holiday, I hope you can participate in at least one.
    The Los Alamos High School Child Development Class is hosting a community wide drive to receive donations of hats, mittens, scarves and even some snack items for school kids in need, in and around our community. The collection locations include the high school, middle school, Chamisa Elementary and both senior center locations.
    Those nifty knitters at the senior centers have already knitted more than two-dozen hats for the terrific teen project. The big collection ends on Monday so they can add to the thankfulness of Thanksgiving.
    As you should know, Nov. 22 is the big Smith’s Marketplace, Boy Scout, Cub Scout food drive. Our faithful mail carriers, with the help of those trusty scouts and the pleasant people at Smith’s will be collecting, bagging picking up and delivering your items to LA Cares.
    I might ask that you take the time to consider your donations and about who is receiving them. Families could use nutritious and delicious snacks to fill lunch pails or kick off a good breakfast with fun cereals or warm oatmeal.

  • New Mexico Dance Theater Performance Company, directed by Susan Baker-Dillingham, presents “The Nutcracker.”

Special guest Giovanni Echave, from the School of the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, will perform the role of The Nutcracker Prince.
