  • Volunteers needed
    The Fuller Lodge Art  Center needs up to a dozen new volunteers. Volunteers sit at the reception desk, greet visitors as they enter and handle any sales. Often visitors have questions about Los Alamos and the interactions with the volunteers become part of their vacation experience. Volunteers are assisted by Fuller Lodge Art Center staff members, as needed. Shifts available are 10 a.m.-1 p.m. or 1 p.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Saturday. Call Amy Bjarke at 662-1635 or email gallery@fullerlodgeart

  • Sock Hop 2011 was a hit

    The 2011 Fabulous Fifties Sock Hop was an evening of cross-generational fun with participants from babies to great-grandparents. Young people stepped in to volunteer.  Old Fashioned hamburgers, root beer floats and Coke were served — all made possible with help from Smith’s Food and Drugs, Hot Rocks Java Café, Daniel’s Café Haagen-Dazs and the Coca-Cola Bottling Company.
    Secundino Sandoval donated a watercolor, “Companionship,” which was won by Cindy Martz. Music was provided by DJ Tim Gallegos, who donated much of his fee to the Family Council programs. Elvis was out of town, so Fonzie (aka Jeff Favorite) stepped in for him as MC.

  • Beginning in May, the Unitarian Church of Los Alamos will offer a series of eight Saturday morning Taiji (T’ai Chi) classes to study the Yang Style 24 forms. Classes will begin at 10 a.m. on May 7 in Robinson Hall.
    No previous experience is necessary. Classes will explore proper body alignment with coordination and flexibility exercises and breathing techniques to cultivate the flow of Qi, or life energy.
    The primary focus of the class is to study the 24 Forms of the Taiji routine which can become a daily discipline of spiritual practice.
    At the conclusion of these classes, students will have an opportunity to participate in thrice-weekly outdoor practices at Ashley Pond for another three months.

  • During April, we have been working on the asset category of “Constructive Use of Time.”
    This category contains Assets 17-20 and kicks off with, “Creative Activities.”
    Creative activities are defined as: “Young person spends three or more hours per week in lessons or practice in music, theater or other arts.”
    Spring break offered us a nice taste of actually having time to do something constructive.
    The break neck speed is about to start and we’ll soon arrive at summer.

  • When you call the Y on any given day, you often find someone like Katie Rosenbaum on the other end saying, “It’s a great day at the Family YMCA.”  
    Thursday it was indeed just that kind of day, marking the Y’s official grand opening of the Los Alamos Teen Center.  Los Alamos County funds the center, which hopes for a permanent facility in the future.

  • “Just how important is ‘the resurrection?’ Isn’t the important thing just that people believe in Jesus and love others like He loved?” — Rob

    Over the centuries, the importance of an historical, bodily resurrection has been down-played by numerous schools of thought. Some have dismissed as myth or wishful thinking or outright fraud the early Christian declaration of a resurrection event. Others have expressed doubt concerning the veracity of the biblical record. Some critics, both within Christianity and without, have promoted the idea that indeed the historical event is not necessary. One merely needs to possess the kind of hopeful faith that would exist had a resurrection actually occurred.
