  • The Los Alamos Friends of the Shelter is hosting a special community presentation at 5:30 p.m. Thursday in Fuller Lodge.
    Tammy Feibelkorn, who chairs a state committee on this issue, will talk about “The Link Between Animal Abuse and Human Violence,” how the state of New Mexico is leading an effort to address this link and what the community might consider doing in Los Alamos.

  • Anytime you have a chance to fundraise with friends for a good cause, life as you know it is pretty good.
    This Monday, local Los Alamos High School senior Keanna Cohen and her posse of pals will be serving up smiles and burgers from 5-8 p.m. at the United Way Hamburger Night, hosted by the Hill Diner.
    “The United Way Youth Team members are very involved in many activities and yet they find time and energy to work for this noble cause,” said Morrie Pongratz, the Youth Team adult leader.

  • More than 50 pieces of fiber art by one artist, Katy Korkos, will grace the walls of the Fuller Lodge Art Center for one week, Nov. 15-20.
    “I’m not sure that it’s because I’m such a prolific artist; maybe it’s because I’ve been making things for about 40 years and I start a lot of new projects,” Korkos said.
    The work is mostly representational rather than abstract and mostly inspired by natural forms — birds, leaves and trees. She says that almost everything else is inspired by words and thoughts about life.

  • Every year, approximately 2,000 communities around the country take part in the Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty Hunger Walk, in an effort to take a stand against hunger and help those in need. Los Alamos is no exception.

  • It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the Betty Ehart Senior Center. Christmas trees of all sizes have begun to fill the center, as donations for the Festival of Trees have begun to flow in.

The event is part of the holiday activities at the BESC, which also includes the Festival of Chocolate on Nov. 19. The Festival of Trees will be from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Nov. 20 at the BESC.
